Plancius

Comfortable expedition-style vessel

Plancius is an ice-strengthened expedition ship ideal for voyages in the Arctic and Antarctica. The vessel offers true expedition-style travel, with a great educational and exploratory program. 

Although not a luxury ship, Plancius is comfortable and nicely decorated. Both the observation lounge and the restaurant have been renovated recently with completely new furniture and finishes. Boasting a warm and hospitable atmosphere, Plancius is the perfect gathering ground for single travellers. Offering various options for sharing accomodation and open-seating dining, you will quickly meet your fellow expeditioners and expedition team members. Passengers on board are often independently-minded with a strong interest in nature and wildlife. Spending as much time ashore as possible is at the essence of all voyages with Plancius.
