Unforgettable Travel Company

Greg Mortimer

Utilizing decades of experience to build a ship suited to Antarctic expeditions, the Greg Mortimer benefits from a thoroughly modern design featuring superior comfort and environmentally friendly technology, as well as a focus on stability with the ship’s innovative X-BOW that allows for smoother sailing by cutting through, rather than riding over a wave. This modern approach to expedition sailing carries throughout the public areas with observation decks, a sauna and spa, a library, and hydraulic viewing platforms that afford sailors an exceptionally immersive perspective from which to watch the wildlife of the stunning Patagonian Fjords and the Antarctic.

Life on Board

Custom built to offer sublime comfort while sailing, to be exceptionally safe and eco-friendly, and for incredible views of the destination she sails to, the Greg Mortimer boasts everything a modern sailor could want in a Polar cruise ship. As a small ship (104 meters long), the Greg Mortimer carries no more than 160 passengers in its 79 extraordinary staterooms and suites. And travelers hoping to see everything the Antarctic regions have to offer will find plenty to love with balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout most room types, while public areas offer numerous options for view-hunters. The dining room is open 24 hours a day for snacks, and a Captain’s Dinner takes place at the beginning and end of your journey, while the ship’s bars and lounges offer sweeping vistas of the passing scenery. 

But life on board the Greg Mortimer unfolds in the lecture theater, where an expert team of adventurers delivers presentations on local history and culture, briefings for the day ahead, and talks on wildlife and exploration. A homely library allows you to dig deeper into pertinent topics or simply unwind with a novel or travel journal before retiring to your cabin for the night. You’ll put all you learn into practice in the mud room in the stern of the ship, a storage space for your outwear equipment, and a preparation zone for boarding a Zodiac, snowshoeing, kayaking, and other off-ship activities.


Spacious, well-appointed en suite cabins provide staggering views through large windows that lead to a private balcony, an ideal spot to watch vast icebergs go by. But for the best views, the large Junior Suites and the Captain’s Suite on deck seven are unmatched, with lounge areas, king or twin beds, spa treatments included, and plenty of space to unwind after a day adventuring on the ice. Basic staterooms on deck 3 are available with portholes and private en suites, suitable for up to three passengers, but families and larger groups should opt for the connecting balcony staterooms for utmost convenience elevated by monumental views. 

Facilities & Public Areas

The ship has various public areas including a comfortable library whose book collection reflects the destinations the Greg Mortimer travels to, as well as a gym and spa on deck seven. The open space of the Elephant Island bar, with its chic yet informal design, lends itself to convivial post-expedition drinks, and forms a relaxed heart of the ship, with the laidback luxury of the restaurant, and lecture room for destination and activity briefings, all close by. But it’s the world beyond the ship that truly matters, and while the Greg Mortimer boasts several observation points, most interesting are its two hydraulic viewing platforms, which extend your view outwards into a more immersive position, ideally suited to wildlife spotting as you sail.
