Ortelius

M/V Ortelius is an ice-strengthened expedition ship with the highest ice class and is very suitable for navigation in the Polar Regions. She was built in Poland in 1989 to serve as a special purpose vessel for the Russian Academy of Science. M/V Ortelius takes 106 passengers in 48 spacious cabins, all with private facilities, windows or portholes. In your cabin you can find a desk with a chair and ample storage space for clothes and equipment. The quadruple cabins have two bunk beds and the triple cabins have two lower beds and a top bunk. All other cabins have lower beds. The superior cabins have a double bed, a single bed and a separate day room with a sofa and TV.
In the ship’s dining room you are treated to delicious meals in between landings and from the large windows in the observation lounge you can enjoy the surrounding landscape. Here you also find the bar. Our knowledgeable guides hold interesting lectures on the area’s flora, fauna and history in the lecture room and in the observation lounge. Passengers are welcome on the bridge around the clock and there is always something to see or search for out on the ship’s spacious decks. There is a friendly and informal atmosphere on board. Travelling with this small expedition ship offers a greater focus on the destination than is the case with larger vessels.
