Cruises on this ship

Leigh, a Canadian in her mid-30s: "The access we had to the wildlife was just incredible."

Ship features & safety

Large common areas and observation decks provide superior views. 360 sightlines from the ship's upper decks offer sweeping panoramas, while the elevated Canada Goose Observation deck provides a great vantage point from which to spot the unique wildlife.

Designed with safety in mind, the MS Expedition is fully equipped to meet the demands of cruising in polar regions. Its forward-looking sonar reduces the risk of grounding on uncharted reefs and its design and construction complies with Finnish-Swedish ICE Class 1 standards. The ship is equipped with new and regularly serviced lifeboats and life rafts. Its four partially enclosed lifeboats provide capacity for all passengers and crew while six life rafts boast a capacity of 150 persons. In addition, the MS Expedition has full cold weather immersion suits for all-designed to significantly increase the odds of survival in the event of immersion in freezing waters.

Internet connection

The Expedition receives Internet reception in Antarctica, but is sporadic in the Arctic. There is wi-fi in the public areas on Decks 4 and 5, and in the Deck 4 cabins (Categories 4 and 5). Passengers can bring their own laptop, sign out one of the two iPads on board, or use one of the two desktops. (Note that you won't be able to make calls from your mobile phone in Antarctica.)

Photography

Each Expedition trip comes with a resident photographer on hand to help you capture the best possible photos on your trip.
