One Ocean Expeditions
Akademik Sergey Vavilov
Akademik Sergey Vavilov is a comfortable and ice strengthened expedition vessel, perfectly suited for polar expeditions. She was built in Finland in 1988, to serve as a polar research vessel, taking a maximum of 92 passengers in 45 cabins. A separate lounge and bar with panoramic views, as well as a library provide ideal places to sit and relax or catch up on some reading. There is also a presentation room, seating all passengers. Here, our polar experts will entertain and educate us with lectures on the area’s flora, fauna, geology and history. Other facilities on board include a gift-shop, a small fitness room and a sauna. In the ship’s dining room, seating all passengers in one single seating, we are treated to delicious meals between the excursions. Passengers are welcome on the bridge around the clock and there is always something to see or search for from the spacious observation decks. From the ship’s top deck we can enjoy 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape. Travelling with this small expedition ship offers an entirely different experience and perspective than you would get on a more conventional cruise ship.
The triple cabins and the superior cabins have portholes, while all other cabins have windows. In all cabins you will find a desk, a chair and storage space for clothes and equipment.
