With a maximum of 134 passengers, the G Expedition provides an intimate, small-ship cruising experience with a focus on exploration. The ship was completely refurbished in 2009 and has been converted into a perfect polar explorer with an ice-strengthened hull, stabilisers, large observation decks and a fleet of zodiacs ready to get you onto the ice. It also features a heated mudroom which ensures extra comfort when preparing for your excursions.

On-board, the ship boasts spacious cabins, each featuring ocean- facing windows or portholes. Decor is smart and comfortable with each cabin offering a private bathroom, storage and a dressing table. Superior cabins and suites are on the top deck of passenger accommodation and offer full-length picture windows for incredible polar views.

The ship has a range of large common areas including the Discovery Lounge, where daily briefings are held by the expedition leader. The ship’s open bridge policy and high staff to passenger rating of 10:1 means a fun, inclusive atmosphere. There is also a 24-hour coffee & tea station and a bar that is open in the evening, serving a range of beverages. In the ship’s restaurant, the expert chefs prepare 3 delicious meals per day - breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style and dinner is a la carte. On the top deck you will find the bar, which leads onto a large BBQ deck area at the back of the ship and hosts light entertainment in the evening.

With an Ice Class of 1B, the G Expedition is sturdily built for exploring one of the most remote areas on the planet and provides comfort and safety even in rougher weather. It’s a great choice for those looking for a comfortable base from which to explore the polar regions.
