When Do You Want To Go?

Aurora’s newest ship honours the highly accomplished marine biologist, oceanographer and explorer, Sylvia Earle. As the first female chief scientist of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and named by Time Magazine as its first Hero for the Planet in 1998 – this vessel pays tribute to Sylvia’s long standing conservation efforts for marine protected areas and ocean wildlife.

The 104-metre purpose-built Expedition ship featuring a state of the art ‘x-bow design’ which has a piercing effect on smaller waves, making for a smoother voyage.  Accommodating a maximum of 126 passengers in the polar regions, the Sylvia Earle has one of the smallest capacities in expedition cruising, which makes for a truly intimate experience. 

All staterooms have private bathrooms, personal storage options, twin and double-bed configuration options, ample storage, international power outlets and a daily cabin service, as well as a range of amenities. Some of the rooms also offer floor to ceiling windows and balconies.

The ship has a wide range of dedicated observation points including an indoor 180-degree lounge and a 360-degree open deck. Meals are served in the large restaurant with family style dining. Other facilities include two bars / lounges with floor to ceiling windows, a library with books and maps, a mud room and a Wellness Centre complete with gym equipment, sauna and spa.
