The Polar Star


The M/V Polar Star (ex-icebreaker) is a safe and comfortable ice class vessel – certified for worldwide international voyages and complying with all SOLAS, ISM, ISPS and MARPOL regulations for safety and environment. In 2000 the ship was completely retrofitted and upgraded specifically for expedition cruising. The ship has exceptional redundancy with 4 engines. What this means is that it is extremely unlikely that the ship would ever be unable to keep to schedule due to operational difficulties. All cabins are outside cabins.

Most cabins have large viewing windows and each cabin is equipped with wardrobes, drawers, nightstands and a writing desk. The M/V Polar Stars onboard facilities include a very spacious bridge with an open bridge policy, large observation lounge/lecture hall with seating for all passengers and a superior amount of outside viewing areas stretching from bow to stern. In addition, public areas also include a cozy bar, sumptuous library, gym and onboard shop.
