Comfort and cutting-edge technology in the world's far-flung remotes
Activity adventure | Off the beaten track
Named after Aurora Expeditions’ co-founder – himself a pioneering adventurer – this brand-new ship is custom-made for sailings to the remote polar regions. But, while you'll be cruising between the wilds of Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland, you’ll still enjoy the highest levels of on-board comfort, with the ship's 120 guests served by 85 attentive staff.
Designed to make the most of its polar routes, the Greg Mortimer is equipped with four sea-level loading docks, allowing seamless embarkation for the ship’s 15 Zodiacs. And, at the stern, there’s a custom-built activity platform, meaning easy ocean access for kayaking, diving and snorkelling. Back inside, you’ll find everything from panoramic lounges and hydraulic viewing platforms to a fully equipped gym and a lecture theatre. The Greg Mortimer is also the first ship to feature the patented, environmentally-friendly Ulstein X-Bow® technology, allowing for faster and smoother sailings while reducing emissions and increasing full efficiency. The ship’s impressive green credentials are further enhanced through minimal light pollution and a lowering of on-board plastic use.
With 80% of the staterooms featuring private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows, you’ll always be close to the action. Each flawlessly contemporary option also features the likes of flat-screen TVs and personal climate control, while sleeping configurations can easily be changed from king to twin.
After a day of exploration, enjoy a delicious meal from the three-course dinner menu, served in the communal dining room and washed down with included house wines, beers and spirits. What’s more, complimentary tea, coffee and snacks are available 24 hours a day.
