Designed exclusively for expedition cruising, the Greg Mortimer is a brand new ship setting sail in the 2019/20 season.
With her new patented X-Bow®, the Greg Mortimer is probably the smoothest ship in the Polar regions, cutting through waves like butter. This is particularly good news for people who suffer from seasickness.
The new patented X-Bow® also means that the Greg Mortimer cuts through the water more efficiently, using less fuel and reducing emissions significantly. Because of this, the Greg Mortimer is one of the most environmentally friendly cruise ships currently sailing today.
At only 340 feet (104 meters) in length, the Greg Mortimer is also one of the smallest expedition cruise ships available. Carrying just 120 passengers, the Greg Mortimer offers guests a very intimate experience with plenty of shore excursions and extra activities such as camping and kayaking.
Custom-built hydraulic platforms provide dedicated observation areas on both sides of the ship, whilst the floor to ceiling windows on deck 8 provide exceptional wildlife watching opportunities from inside. Facilities also include a modern lecture theatre, gymnasium, massage room, spa, and sauna. Not only this, but 80% of the suites onboard come with private balconies.
