M/V Ushuaia

The M/V Ushuaia is a small, ice-strengthened expedition ship originally built for the United States agency NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration). She has now been refurbished to accommodate a maximum of just 84 passengers in comfortable cabins and suites. The Ushuaia offers great value cruises to the Antarctic Peninsula, as well as occasional cruises to South Georgia and Weddell Sea. See under Departures for more information. 

The polar vessel USHUAIA is very well appointed and provides ample deck space and an open bridge policy. The full complement of inflatable landing craft ensures superb landings and wildlife viewing opportunities on otherwise inaccessible coastlines.

All cabins include ample storage space. Public areas feature a large dining room (one sitting), an observation lounge and bar, a conference room with modern multimedia equipment, a well-stocked library, a changing room and a small infirmary.

The expert captain, officers and crew are highly experienced in Antarctic navigation and have a great love of nature. A specialist team of international expedition leaders and lecturers are all extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, helpful and dedicated to the protection of the environment. Chefs prepare excellent cuisine including many local specialties and the bar is well-stocked with carefully selected wines and spirits.
