The Akademik Ioffe was designed and built as a polar scientific research vessel and has features that few other ships in the polar regions can match. The ship is stable and quiet, which means she can expertly manoeuvre close to the action. There is plenty of outside deck space for observing Antarctica and because the ship carries just 96 passengers, it means everyone can set foot on the ice at the same time.
On-board, the Akademik Ioffe offers a comfortable interior with plenty of space. Those looking to learn even more can head to the presentation room and join a series of talks held by the on-board expedition team. Other facilities include a dining room, gift shop, fitness room, sauna and outdoor hot tub.
There is a range of accommodation on-board and all cabins have exterior views, a writing desk, radio with iPod dock and plenty of storage. Cabins have either shared, semi-private or private facilities.Search for Cruises on Ioffe
