Areal layout

Survey deck

 

On survey deck you can walk all around the superstructure which means there is always a leeward side. Passing over the flume tank (which is a passive stabilization system to reduce rolling) you will reach the foredeck where you have a great panoramic view of what’s waiting ahead.

On foredeck the sound from the engine is next to unnoticeable, you are left with the the wind and the vast sound from the water foaming around the bow while steaming ahead.

The mast platforms

 

For those who like an extra thrill, there are two large platforms in the main mast. From up here you can almost touch the sky and you will have an incredible 360° overview of the surroundings. The access is via a ladder from scenery deck and you will need a harness to climb, a slight challenge but well worth the price once you are up there!

Main deck interior

 

Communal areas are available on two deck levels.

On main deck you find the day room with board games, TV and a media station for relaxing times onboard.

Next door to the day room is the mess room with a bar, tables and furniture for dining and hang out between meals.

There is an exit to the aft deck that leads through the mud room, an area with space to store your boots and outdoor clothing for expeditions in the zodiacs and ashore.

On the same deck level you also find the well equipped galley where our chef prepares your delicious meals.

The bridge

 

From the survey lounge you have easy access to the state of the art bridge with a 360º view to the outside.

The bridge is a great place to scout for wildlife, hang out with a coup of tea and to socialize with the crew and your fellow expedition members. There are several seating options for you to sit comfortably while overlooking the navigational process and the outside surroundings.

The pilot/co-pilot bridge layout will often offer a free seat for the curious traveller. Here you are welcome to learn more about the systems and features used for navigation, communication and maneuvering of the ship.
