126Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship
Activities will play a major part in the passenger experience – with expert-led kayak expeditions, Polar ski touring, climbing, snowshoeing, hiking and exploration by Zodiac placing guests at the heart of the destinations in which they are sailing.
In addition to a stellar line-up of highly qualified expedition guides, there are plans for marine researchers, scientists and conservationists to join the expedition team on board the Sylvia Earle
The 126-passenger ship will be the second in the fleet to sail with the patented ULSTEIN X-BOW®, whose inverted bow design, in combination with Rolls Royce dynamic stabilizers offers unrivaled stability and comfort on ocean crossings. As well as improving comfort at sea the inverted Ulstein X-BOW® offers an enhanced viewing experience by bringing passengers much closer to the immediate environment than that which can be achieved on ships with a traditional, bulbous shaped bow.
This design will feature a unique two-level glass atrium lounge in the bow, offering extraordinary views to the front to the ship. In Polar regions this means that passengers will be able to appreciate the majesty of an iceberg immediately as it appears on the horizon.
With this revolutionary technology to cross oceans more comfortably, expansive observation decks to bring you closer to the environment, inviting communal areas and unsurpassed environmental credentials, Aurora Expeditions’ ships offer the perfect base camp for adventures at the outer limits of human exploration.
