Greg Mortimer

One of the most advanced expedition ships in the world, the 132-passenger Greg Mortimer (named after the well-known Australian mountaineer and explorer) was built to world-class polar standards with the most up-to-date safety and nautical technology. Her unique, inverted bow allows for more gentle sea crossings, improved comfort, and reduced emissions. The ship has an impressive list of environmentally friendly features—her Tier 3 engine gives off 80% less emissions than Tier 1 engines, she has a high fuel efficiency, reduced light pollution, lower plastic use, and state-of-the-art anchoring technology that allows the ship to hold its position without disturbing the sea floor. All cabins have private bathrooms, ample storage, ocean-view windows, individually controlled air-conditioning and heating, and most have private balconies. There are also interconnecting stateroom options for families and groups. Onboard observation points are a key feature for optimal wildlife viewing. These include a 180-degree indoor lounge, a 360-degree outdoor open viewing deck, a sun deck, and two hydraulic viewing platforms on Deck 5. Meals are served in the dining room that can accommodate all guests at one seating, and coffee, tea, and snacks are available around the clock. Guests can enjoy presentations in the lecture room, two bar/lounges with floor-to-ceiling windows, a library, and wellness center with fitness equipment, sauna, and spa. The ship carries a fleet of 15 Zodiacs, kayaks, and diving and climbing equipment.
