LUXURY/EXPEDITION (146 GUESTS)

Introduction

The RCGS Resolute (formerly the MS Hanseatic) is a modern, ice-strengthened Arctic and Antarctic cruise ship with all en-suite cabins accommodating up to 146 guests. Purpose built for polar waters in Rauma Finland (in the same shipyard as the Akademik Sergey Vavilov and Akademik Ioffe) the Resolute not only has the highest ice class rating (Lloyds 1AS) she also offers unmatched stability and superior speed to get you to your destination and out exploring.

The RCGS Resolute combines first class accommodation and excellent cuisine, with a true expedition experience. Quite literally the best of both worlds.

Two separate lounge and bar areas allow everyone to enjoy 180 degree views whilst sharing stories from your day exploring the shores of the High Arctic. The Resolute has an open bridge policy so passengers can admire the crew manoeuvring the ship through the Antarctic waters. . Additional facilities include: theatre style presentation room, hot water spa, sauna, steam room and salt water pool, gymnasium and wellness centre.
