Review of Professor Molchanov ship

March 3rd-21st, 2005

Are you looking for information on Antarctica cruise ships? In this review you will find photos and information about Prof. Molchanov ship, an expedition Russian vessel often used for cruises to Antarctica and to the Arctic. This ship is very versatile and can navigate easily into smaller bays and channels, even if filled with ice, thanks to the reinforced hull. Regardless these features, the ship is still comfortable enough to accommodate 50 tourists plus crew.

Pictures of Prof. Molchanov showing my cabin, a triple with 2 lower beds, 1 upper bed, a desk with chair, and sufficient space to store all the things. The ship has only two triple cabins and, as they are the cheapest, they are usually sold-out far in advance. Of course, the travel agency will find room mates if you are traveling alone and want to avoid the expensive single supplement. Other cabins available are double and twin of different sizes and features.
