The G Expedition is one of the smaller ships sailing in Antarctic waters with a capacity for just 134 passengers. This provides a personal and intimate small-ship experience that matches the ethos of the company behind the boat.
Originally built as a car/passenger ferry in Denmark in 1972 it was completely refurbished in 2009 and has been converted into a comfortable Ice Class 1B polar explorer with an ice-strengthened hull, stabilisers, elevated viewing decks, “mud room” and a fleet of zodiacs to transport you closer to the action.
The ship has five decks and several different cabin types, the most basic of which are the triple or quad, category 1 porthole rooms. The most luxurious offering are the category 5 suites on the top deck, some of which even have floor-to-ceiling windows for incredible views of the polar scenery.
For excursions into the polar environs you are provided with thermal waterproof boots to wear during the voyage and a high spec, technical expedition parka which is yours to keep. The ship has a dedicated “mud room” where each traveler is allocated a space to leave your boots and wet weather gear, it is also the embarkation point for excursions out on the Zodiac.
With a crew of 55 plus 14 expedition staff who run workshops, host lectures, accompany shore excursions and mingle at mealtimes there is always someone on hand to help or to ask questions, creating a friendly, immersive atmosphere.
