M/V Plancius | Arctic & Antarctic Cruise Ship

M/V Plancius | Arctic & Antarctic Cruise Ship

Recently refurbished and part of the new series of Antarctic vessels, The MV Plancius is a comfortable ship. MV Plancius can accommodate 116 passengers in 53 passenger cabins with private toilet and shower. These are configured as 4 triple private cabins, 39 twin private cabins (ca. 15 square meters) and 10 twin superior cabins (ca. 21 square meters).

All cabins offer lower berths (either one queen-size bed or two single beds), except for the 4 triple cabins (bunk beds and 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.
