We have 12 cabins on board for voyage crew, four of them are 2-persons cabins, four are for 4 persons and we have four 6-persons cabins. All cabins are comforatble and have their own shower and toilet. During the Antarctica voyages or the long oceancrossings a maximum of 5 persons will be placed in a 6-personscabin.
If you are travelling as a couple you can decide to book a 2-personscabin, but you can also be placed together with another couple in a 4-personscabin. Single travelers can find their bunk in a 4- or 6-personscabin (male or female cabins) We cannot guarantee any specific cabin or bunk to you, we can make a note of your preference, however the final cabin overview will be made on board by the captain.
