Vavilov

A virtually identical sister ship to the Akademik Ioffe, this is a purpose-built vessel designed to have maximum stability in adverse conditions, quiet engines and superior speed. This combination of characteristics results in excellent manoeuvrability in the polar regions, allowing further exploration and close up views of the landscape.

The ship carries a maximum of 92 guests and large outdoor deck spaces and a top deck panoramic bar provide 360 degree views of the incredible polar landscapes. Elsewhere on-board passengers are able to enjoy a fitness room, sauna, massage room and plunge pool.

Five different cabin types are available ranging from triples through to suites, all featuring outside portholes or windows with blackout curtains.

Open seating in the ample dining room can host all passengers in one sitting. Breakfast is served buffet- style, lunch provides both light and more filling options while in the evenings guests are served a healthy three- course meal and a selection of international wines.
