Expedition Vessel: Akademik Shokalskiy

Akademik Shokalskiy is a polar cruise ship built in 1984 for polar and oceanographic research. This class of expedition ship is world renowned for polar exploration, because of its strength, maneuverability and small passenger numbers. The Shokalskiy provides comfortable accommodation in double and twin cabins with private facilities. All cabins have outside windows and ample storage space. On board there is a combined bar/library lounge area and a dedicated lecture room, where the expedition team present talks.

**We currently have no scheduled voyages on the Shokalskiy, however under 'Voyages' are listed voyages of other small ship expedition cruises (under 75 passengers) including the identical sister vessels 'Spirit of Enderby' and 'Polar Pioneer.'
