Ortelius

The 123-guest, ice-strengthened Ortelius is an excellent vessel for expedition cruising in the Arctic and Antarctica. Built in 1989, she has the highest ice-class notation (UL1 equivalent to 1A) and is very suitable for navigating in solid one-year sea ice and loose multi-year pack ice. The vessel has simple but comfortable cabins, ranging from quadruples and triple cabins with bunk beds to superior cabins with double beds. All are outside cabins with a minimum of two portholes or windows per cabin, all have private shower and toilet, hairdryers, flat screen TV and ample storage space. The Ortelius’ public areas include lots of open-deck space, a restaurant that seats everyone in a single seating, and a bar/lecture room. She carries a fleet of Zodiacs for shore excursions and has a staff and crew of 50. This is not a luxury vessel, but she is an excellent vessel for polar expedition cruises Antarctica.
