Whether it’s gathering in the modern lecture theatre to learn about the wildlife that you are about to see, photographing whales from its viewing platforms or preparing for your next shore excursion, the Greg Mortimer takes expedition cruising to a new level.
At just 340 feet (104 meters) long, the Greg Mortimer carries a maximum of 120 expeditioners to the polar regions. As one of the smallest ships in the polar expedition cruising fleet, its size and modern ice-strengthened hull (Class 1A, one category below a full ice-breaker) give you the ability to explore those places that larger ships can’t reach.
