Ioffe

Overview

Designed for polar research, the Ioffe is modern, comfortable, safe and ice-strengthened. From small group sessions to briefings for all passengers, the public spaces on board the ship ideally suited for adventure cruising. A separate bar and lounge, as well as a library provide ideal places to sit and relax or catch up on some reading. A selection of movies and documentaries can also be watched in the lounge.

Enjoy meals prepared for you by our culinary team in our dining room, which can host all clients in a single seating. Other facilities include the theater style presentation room, gift-shop, fitness room, massage room, sauna and plunge pool.

Designed and built as a scientific research vessel in Finland, the One Ocean Ioffe is very stable, quiet and comfortable. Refitting and refurbishment over the last five years oriented towards her role as an expedition cruise vessel and has greatly improved the comfort and caliber of the facilities aboard the ship.

There is little if any ambient noise from engines or machinery and with most of the public spaces on a separate deck from the majority of the cabins there is little issue with passenger-generated noise.

Vessel stabilization is gained through a combination of external stabilizers on her hull and a built-in ballast trimming system. The rapid transfer of ballast between special trimming tanks reduces vessel motion and coupled with a modern hull design gives us a stable platform for exploration.

Expert and very experienced staff, Adventure Concierges cater to passengers every need.

A fleet of Zodiac inflatable boats are used to shuttle passengers to landing sites and on scenic cruises through the majestic bays and channels of Antarctica. A true adventure ship, both kayaking and camping is available onboard the Akademik Ioffe.
