MV Plancius

Recently refurbished and part of the new series of Antarctic vessels, The MV Plancius is a comfortable ship. MV Plancius can accommodate 108 passengers in 52 passenger cabins with private toilet and shower. These are configured as quads,  triple and twin cabins.

All cabins offer lower berths (one queen-size bed in the superior cabins and two single beds in the twin cabins), except for the 4 quadruple cabins (for 4 persons in 2x upper and lower beds), and 2 triple cabins (1 bunk bed plus 1 lower bed). The ship offers a restaurant/lecture room on deck 3 and a spacious observation lounge with bar on deck 5 with large windows that give a full panoramic view. MV Plancius has large open spaces on deck (with full walk-around options on deck 3), giving outstanding opportunities to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. Furthermore she is equipped with 10 Mark V zodiacs, including 40 HP 4-stroke outboard engines and 2 gangways on the starboard side, guaranteeing a speedy zodiac operation. MV Plancius is not a luxurious vessel, but will be comfortable and nicely decorated.

Our voyages in the Arctic and Antarctic regions are and will still be primarily defined by an exploratory and educational travel itinerary, spending as much time ashore as possible. This vessel will fully meet our requirements to achieve this.
