MS Expedition: Ship Details and Overview


Photo of MS Expedition

Completely refurbished in 2009, the MS Expedition is a spacious and well designed expedition ship that offers great value for money. Accommodating 132 passengers, the vessel is one of the smaller in the region which allows it to penetrate areas often to small for the larger ships.

Large common areas, 360° Observation Deck and all outward facing cabins withe private en suites make the MS Expedition a favorite among many! The vessel is equipped with a fleet of zodiacs so you never miss a photo opportunity with the incredible wildlife.

The ship is also kitted out with a mud room, pub, gift shop, sauna, gym and medical clinic. With an ice-strengthened hull, you’ll be very safe aboard the Expedition as you make daily shore landings.
