Shackleton's Quest - 20 day cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula, the Falklands and South Georgia
The Professor Multanovskiy and her identical sister ship, the Akademik Shokalskiy, both cruise the same itinerary. They were originally designed and built in Finland for polar and oceanographic research and carry a maximum of 48 passengers in comfortable outside cabins. With an ice-strengthened hull and passive stabilizers they are able to navigate more remote and scenic areas, sailing smoothly to where many other vessels cannot reach. The Multanovskiy is a 235 foot long vessel that has been extensively refurbished. The Captain and crew are Russian, expedition staff are international and the chefs European. Experienced expedition staff lead shore excursions and give daily lectures on board. There is a library, sauna, lounge and bar and two dining rooms as well as a doctor on board.
Selected departures offer optional sea kayaking and antarctic camping, at an additional cost. Please ask us for details.
