This small, all-suite expedition vessel was built in 1992, refurbished in 2005 and will be renovated in 2016. The multi-million dollar renovation will transform the ship into one of the finest small-ships sailing Antarctic waters. She has seven cabin categories, including single and triple cabins.
Every suite has a sitting area, an en suite, a picture window and two twin beds that convert to a queen-size on request.
Some suites include private balconies aka verandas. While triple cabins have an additional sofa bed.
