About This Boat

M/V Ushuaia, Antartica Cruise

The 278-ft M/V Ushuaia was originally built for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in 1970, and has been refurbished to accommodate a maximum of 88 passengers on Antarctica expeditions. She is not a luxury vessel, but rather offers simple, yet comfortable accommodation and amenities. The smaller group size allows travelers to take full advantage of Antarctic wildlife observation and exploration. The expert staff are all extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, helpful and dedicated to the protection of the environment. The Ushuaia complies with the latest SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) regulations, flies under the Union of Comoros flag, is ice-strengthened (INSB Ice class C) and travels at a maximum speed of 14 knots (cruising speed – 12 knots).

The M/V Ushuaia accommodates 88 passengers in 44 comfortable outside cabins and suites configured as single, twin and triple cabins with porthole or window and private or semi-private bathroom facilities. The suites have private facilities and windows.

The M/V Ushuaia is very well appointed with ample deck space and an open bridge policy. Public areas include an observation lounge and bar, a panoramic deck, a lecture room with modern media equipment, an extensive library and a small infirmary and changing room. A large dining room accommodates all passengers in one sitting.

The vessel is equipped with seven inflatable crafts (Zodiacs and RIBs) for shore excursions.

The M/V Akademik Ioffe is manned by a highly experienced, 50 member marine crew, including an international catering/hotel staff, and an expedition staff of about 14 (comprised of an expedition leader, an assistant expedition leader, six guides/lecturers, four adventure concierges, a photographer in residence and a doctor).

Ushuaia – $5,400 - This is the lowest price available for this boat.
