She can accommodate a maximum of 132 passengers and following a multi-million dollar refurbishment and refit offers travellers a unique and comfortable way of exploring the Polar Regions. The refit included the installation of brand new cabins with ensuite bathrooms, a refurbishment of the dining room -large enough to accommodate all passengers in one sitting - the pub, lounge, gym and sauna.

Guests have the choice of five categories of cabins ranging from quad-share to suites. Each cabin will be outside facing featuring either portholes or windows and the ship will boast multiple viewing areas, including a 360-degree observation deck for wildlife spotting.

G Expedition is fitted with state-of-the-art stabilizers to ensure as smooth a passage as possible. With a top speed of 16 knots, passengers spend less time travelling from A to B and more time exploring the destination. The ship is outfitted with all the latest safety equipment including covered lifeboats and a fast rescue boat from Norsafe.

An elite team of 10 expedition staff, consisting of expedition leaders, naturalists, historians, geologists and marine and avian biologists, accompany every cruise in order to share their knowledge of the destination’s history, unique environment and wildlife.
