The historic MV Plancius was built in 1976 as an oceanographic research vessel and in 2009 was completely rebuilt as a 116-passenger polar explorer ship. The ship boasts large open deck spaces, a fleet of Mark V zodiacs and a team of expert expedition staff to accompany each voyage.
There is comfortable furnishing and decor throughout and the spacious observation lounge on Deck 5 acts as the hub of the ship, from which you can enjoy views of the polar regions. The restaurant on Deck 3 offers a comprehensive menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
