Description

The RCGS Resolute has been purpose built for polar expedition and is well-equipped to handle the harshest of Antarctic conditions, with the highest ice class available (Lloyds 1AS). The ship is commended for its stability and speed, which helps make the experience on board more comfortable, but also ensures more time at each of the landing sites when cruising the Antarctic Peninsula.

During an expedition cruise to Antarctica, a lot of time will be spent on board, and every effort has been made to ensure that the ship is both practical and cosy. Cabins are designed with plenty of storage, so it is possible to keep luggage in the room with you, with plenty of drawer space for unpacking. The smallest cabin is 22sqm, while the One Ocean Suites measure 44sqm, though all have a lounge area too for curling up with a book in the privacy of your cabin.

The extensive facilities on board include two dining rooms, spacious observation decks, both indoor with a bar/lounge and outdoor, hot water Jacuzzi, gym and wellness center with sauna and steam room, perfect for unwinding after excursions out in polar weather conditions.

When to go

Antarctic weather is a lesson in extremes. Antarctica is the world’s coldest, windiest and driest continent. During the summer months the winds abate considerably and the weather is surprisingly comfortable, averaging between 20 and 50F. Summertime also means 18-24 hours of sunlight which allows life to flourish for a brief summer period. Long days also allow extensive exploration by small ship cruise to Antarctica. Antarctic weather allows for a short season of cruising from November to March each year.
