Polar Class 6 Ships

Our custom-built Polar Class 6 ships are optimally sized for expeditions: small enough to navigate remote areas, yet large enough to provide speed, superior handling, and stability in the roughest seas.

Industry Leading Stability

Our expedition ships have a dynamic positioning mode that allows them to hover in place when anchoring is difficult and industry-leading stabilisers that reduce rolling while sailing, and when stationary, by nearly 50%.

Designed For Viewing

Every room is a viewing room, with floor-to-ceiling windows found throughout the ship. We put great effort into envisioning what expedition should be and ensuring you see all the breathtaking vistas that await. No matter where you are on board.

Viking Nordic Balcony

The Viking Nordic Balcony transforms your stateroom into a panoramic wildlife observatory at sea. The distortion-free glass lets you take in the views while keeping the elements out. Should you wish to feel closer to nature, the top of the window slides down to create a viewing platform.

The Hangar

A first and exclusive for expedition ships, The Hangar lets you board expedition equipment from the safety and comfort of an enclosed in-ship marina. Making the boarding process a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Expedition Equipment

Breaking new exploration boundaries, we satisfy your spirit of adventure with a fleet of sophisticated expedition equipment including two yellow-submarines, 12-seater ribs, military pro zodiacs, kayaks and more - at no extra charge.

Onboard Laboratory

As the Thinking Person’s Cruise we have partnered with Cambridge University and other leading associations to run a working scientific laboratory on board and every expedition features a team of experts and scientists to create unparalleled knowledge-building experiences.

The Aula Auditorium

The world’s most advanced and breathtaking venue for learning at sea. The Aula auditorium opens to reveal a stunning 270-degree view. Through the sliding glass walls you’ll find the Finse Terrace, an outdoor lounge area with warming lava rock firepits.

Heated Swimming Pools

Admire the scenery of vast wilderness from this heated sanctuary of three different temperature pools, including an “inside-out” pass-through swimming experience.
