Polar Pioneer was commissioned in Finland in 1985 as an ice- strengthened research ship, designed for exploring polar waters. In 2001 she was refurbished to provide comfortable accommodation for 54 passengers. Her excellent reputation for polar expedition cruising is due to her strength, manoeuvrability and size. our highly experienced Russian captain and crew are among the best ice navigators in the world. The spacious bridge is always open to us and decks are ideal for viewing the dramatic polar landscapes and wildlife. Polar Pioneer¹s accommodation is simple, yet comfortable, and all cabins have outside portholes and ample storage space.
Meals are wholesome, delicious and prepared by Western chefs, while Russian stewardesses attend the dining room. A small fleet of inflatable Zodiacs enables easy travel from ship to shore.
