Your Cruise Ship

We are proud to welcome you aboard Hondius, the world's first Polar Class 6 vessel. Purpose-built for demanding Antarctic exploration, Hondius meets the latest and highest Lloyd’s Register standards for ice-strengthened cruise ships.

Built to exceed the Polar Code requirements adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Hondius is the most flexible, advanced, innovative Antarctic cruise vessel currently operating. Her modern design allows you to enjoy genuine exploration that will bring you closer to the real Antarctic than ever before.

Huge expense and technical skill have gone into making Hondius supremely comfortable and environmentally sustainable. No other polar cruise vessel can match her for amenities and entertainment or her environmental credentials.

Hondius features measures such as LED lighting throughout, high-efficiency steam heating, biodegradable paints and lubricants, and a state-of-the-art power management system that minimizes fuel burn and CO2 emissions. All this invisible technology means that you get to enjoy one of nature's last wilderness regions as much as possible while leaving little impact as you go.

Hondius offers high-quality accommodation for only 170 passengers across her 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.

Her public spaces are large, with one whole deck devoted to a huge observation lounge and separate lecture room. It's here that her crew of Antarctic experts will entertain and teach with talks and lectures on Antarctic geology, geography, wildlife, and human history.

Despite the comfort offered by Hondius' charming mid-century decor, we know that Antarctic shore and near-shore exploration is the star of the show. That's why Hondius' itineraries aim to minimize time at sea. To give you maximum contact with Antarctic wildlife and nature, Hondius operates a fleet of tough, rigid-hull inflatable Zodiac boats to ensure swift and safe landings. To aid your comfort, Hondius has two separate gangways and a sheltered indoor embarkation platform which can also be used for other outdoor activities such as sea kayaking.

Fitted with advanced stabilizers and powerful engines, Hondius is able to react quickly, and her flexible itineraries allow the expert crew to reach the best wildlife encounters and take advantage of changing sea conditions to bring you the best of the Antarctic. Her 72 crew will ensure that even if your time onboard is brief, it will be exceptionally comfortable!
