Janssonius has been purpose-built to meet all the latest and highest Lloyd’s Register specifications for ice-strengthened cruise ships. Surpassing the requirements of the Polar Code adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Janssonius is one of the most flexible, advanced, and innovative antarctic cruise vessels. Her owner's philosophy is to bring her passengers closer than ever before to the beauty and wonder of the Southern Ocean and the Antarctic region.

Boasting high-quality amenities and onboard entertainments, the comfort of Janssonius does not come at an environmental price - she's one of the most sustainable antarctic exploration vessels currently operating. This means that when you sail aboard Janssonius, you get to enjoy the exotic landscapes and wildlife as much as possible while impacting them as little as possible.

Janssonius offers high-quality accommodation for only 170 passengers in six grand suites with balconies, eight junior suites, eight superior cabins, 11 twin deluxe cabins, 14 twin window cabins, as well as 27 twin porthole cabins, two triple porthole cabins, and four quadruple porthole cabins. One deck consists of a large observation lounge with a separate lecture room, used for a wide variety of interactive workshops, exhibitions, and performances. Despite her elegant and stylish mid-century modern décor, this vessel has a distinctive cozy and informal atmosphere.

It's the ship's philosophy to keep sea time short so that the focus can be on fast, effective access to the shore and near-shore activities. To give passengers the maximum contact with nature and wildlife they have come so far to see, Janssonius operates a fleet of tough rigid-hull inflatable Zodiac boats that guarantee swift and safe landing operations.

Janssonius' priority is to take advantage of every wildlife and terrain opportunity as it occurs. With her advanced stabilizers and powerful engines, she can react to changing ice, sea, and wildlife conditions to bring you the very best encounters.

Janssonius's take on sustainable traveling

The new vessel, m/v Janssonius, is designed from the ground up to employ only the latest green technology. It employs LED lighting, steam heating, biodegradable paints and lubricants, adjustable pitch propellers, shaft generators instead of diesel generators, Tier III engines that reduce nitrogen oxide, waste heat that can be reused for producing fresh water, and flexible power management systems that keep fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions low. Specifically, these efficient new engines have reduced average fuel consumption per passenger by more than 35 percent, making Janssonius one of the most environmentally sustainable ships in the polar regions. Another of our important commitments to sustainability is the use of low-sulfur marine gas oil (LSMGO), which has a sulfur content of less than 0.1 percent.

She limits onboard waste production by recycling as often as we can as well as banning single-use plastics. This ship does not use straws, plastic cups, or any individually wrapped butter, yogurt, and jam. This vessel has a water treatment system and desalination system that uses reverse osmosis, allowing us to eliminate the use of plastic water bottled on board. Rather, guests receive a reusable water bottle they can refill on the vessel. Bathrooms are equipped with biodegradable shampoo and soap in recycled packing, further limiting our use of plastics.
