As you plan your excursion into the icy North, choosing the right ship can make all the difference. The thick-hulled ships that explore the Arctic fall into a few main groups. One of the most unique options is the icebreakers, including boats like 50 Years of Victory or Kapitan Khlebnikov, which crush through the frozen Polar waters. Research vessels, like Akademik Sergey Vavilov, are another common choice. While they aren't particularly luxurious, they were designed for research and will give you a comfortable way to reach otherwise isolated destinations. Or, if you're looking for a more classic cruise experience, super yachts or cruisers, like the 318-passenger M/S Fram are a good option, offering well appointed cabins, gyms, several social areas, and even several Jacuzzis, in addition to great food and service.
