Affordable Polar expedition ship with a South American crew and a solid, reliable reputation.

This US-built ship prides herself on excellent service. A reliable Argentine operation, her crew is mostly Latin American and the spirit is friendly and informal. The large outer deck, dining room, observation lounge and bar provide ample space for everyone to mingle and, thanks to her size, you can really get to know your fellow Antarctic explorers.

She has a large deck, enabling the up-to 90 guests to enjoy a feeling of space and freedom whilst on board. All exterior-facing cabins are bright with ample storage space and individually controlled heating. There’s a wide range to suit all budgets; from economical twin cabins with bunk beds and shared facilities to quite minimalist, contemporary-styled suites with DVD, sitting area and minibar.

The ship has a large dining room where meals taken at shared tables, so it’s easy to make new friends. There’s an observation lounge, conference room with modern multimedia equipment and you are welcome on the bridge.
