M/V Plancius

The M/V Plancius is one of the most up-to-date expedition vessels in polar waters. The aim is for guests to spend as much time as possible ashore, and with dedicated adventure departures this vessel is ideal for travellers who want to camp, kayak, snowshoe or even dive during their time in Antarctica. Accommodation and public areas on the ship are neutral and fairly minimalist, though more than adequately comfortable as the emphasis on board is always what is happening outside. A selection of cabin options lie across four decks, but all are spacious.

Key features:

  • Refurbished 2009
  • Camping, kayaking, snow-shoeing, skiing and diving options
  • Observation lounge and bar
  • Photographic workshops
