50 Years of Victory

The 50 Years of Victory is a purpose-built ship which originally took scientific and cargo ships to remote areas of the Arctic and the Northeast Passage. It is one of the most powerful nuclear icebreakers ever built with nuclear reactors generating up to 74,000 horsepower and a spoon-shaped bow allowing to break through three meters thick ice layers.

The expedition ship can carry up to 140 passengers taking them on an exclusive voyage further into the ice than any other vessels.  Despite not being a tourist ship, the 50 years of Victory offers comfortable accommodation with exterior views and private facilities as well as tasty cuisine for its guests.

Other facilities include the victory bar with exterior views, a lecture saloon with state-of-the-art equipment, a helicopter landing pad, a shop and a gym, two saunas and a small swimming pool.
