Clipper Adventurer

Travellers who seek an element of elegance for cruising around the Scottish Isles, Greenland and Norway should look no further than the Clipper Adventurer. The ship was built in 1975 and has since undergone extensive refurbishment with the feel of an old ocean liner characterised with brass fittings and tall, dark wood panelling. The vessel now boasts 60 outside cabins with private facilities and a window-lined dining room and lounge where guests can relax. There are also two bars and a library stocked with nautical books and board games.

Orion II

The super luxury vessel, Orion II was launched in May 2011, and is set to change the face of expedition cruising. This private yacht-like cruise ship accommodates just 100 guests in 50 handsomely-appointed suites with private ocean views. The interiors of rich fabrics, elegant wood, polished brass and rare antiquities blend perfectly with the ship's inviting facilities and reflect both elegance and supreme cruising pleasure. An expedition cruise on the Orion II is sure to be the trip of a lifetime for anyone searching for adventure alongside first class service and facilities.

First built in 1976 as an oceanographic research vessel for the Royal Dutch Navy and named "Hr. Ms. Tydeman", the Plancius has now been fully reconstructed as a 110-passenger vessel suitable for Polar expeditions. The vessel offers a restaurant/lecture room and a spacious observation lounge (with bar) with large windows, offering a full panorama view. All cabins are generously proportioned and are outside facing, mostly equipped with two bunk beds and a comfortable private bathroom.
