Discover the Secrets of Melanesia

Exploring Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu aboard the Heritage Adventurer

Heritage Adventurer

Purpose built for adventure in 1991 at Finland’s Rauma shipyard, the 140-guest Heritage Adventurer (formerly known as MS Hanseatic) is 406 feet long, boasts the highest passenger ship ice-class rating (1A Super), and has an impressive history of remote region exploration. On board, enjoy stylish, sophisticated accommodations spanning four decks. You can visit the captain and crew in the Bridge with the ship’s Open Bridge Policy and dine on gourmet fare from leading Australasian chefs. Watch your adventure unfold from numerous spectacular indoor and outdoor viewing locations including the ship’s Observation Lounge, resplendent with 270-degree views, and join a world-renowned team of naturalists, botanists, historians, and other experts as they interpret the natural and human history discovered during each voyage, as well as hosting regular lectures. And should you require a little R&R, unwind in the library, pool, gym, hot tub, sauna and steam room, indulge in some retail therapy, or find a quiet place to enjoy a coffee or cocktail from the café and bar. A fleet of 14 Zodiacs maximizes your expedition experience.
