Polar Pioneer Polar Pioneer

Explore the Arctic and the Antarctic on the Polar Pioneer; an ice-strengthened research vessel. Cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula or the Arctic for fantastic wildlife and scenery.

Originally designed as an ice-strengthened research ship, the Polar Pioneer is strong, manoeuvrable and small enough to takes you to places that larger cruise ships can only sail past. On board, you won’t need such a long focus lens to capture the wildlife and record the statuesque magnificence of passing icebergs. Polar Pioneer takes you closer - something you’ll appreciate the first time you’re standing on deck, watching a huge whale break surface before your eyes. Whilst concentrating on giving you an unrivalled Polar experience, the Polar Pioneer is also very comfortable. All cabins have portholes and ample storage space. There’s an elegant dining room, lounge bar, lecture room/library, sauna and medical office.
