The Akademik Sergey Vavilov (ON) is widely recognized as the best expedition-style cruise vessel operating in Polar waters. She's a well-equipped, ice-rated ship capable of carrying up to 118 passengers, although normally carrying no more than 110 for extra comfort.

In terms of stability and speed, she is 'state of the art' and, while not luxurious, she's very comfortable and kept in top condition.

As a working scientific research vessel, the ship is the ideal platform from Antarctica travel and Arctic cruises. All the equipment needed for exploring, from zodiac landing craft to kayaks and camping gear is provided on board. Your expedition ship even carries snowshoes.

The ship's facilities include a bar, gift shop, gymnasium, infirmary, library, lounge, presentation room, sauna and swimming pool. Also included onboard is an elevator for easy access between all decks.

For communications, the ship carries an Immarsat telephone and fax equipment as well as a variety of shortwave, SSB, and VHF radio systems. She has fully current GMDSS (Global Marine Distress and Safety System) equipment. You will be in good hands aboard with your crew.
