Cruise Ships in The Arctic : MV Ortelius

MV Ortelius

The Ortelius is one of the old breed of expedition vessels and somewhat eclectic in style.- Functional and sturdy, she is perfectly suited to polar cruising. The cabins are surprisingly large and a recent overhaul has improved the Russian decor immeasurably. With an emphasis on spending as much time as possible ashore on exploratory wildlife excursions, the powerful engines and on-board helicopters are ideal for allowing access to the more remote areas.

Key features:

  • Helicopter excursions
  • Kayaking and camping options
