When you’re on board the 50 Years of Victory, you’ll know what it feels like to be all-powerful. The world's largest and most sophisticated nuclear-powered icebreaker, the Victory has the highest ice class rating possible, meaning no matter what terrain you’re crossing, you’ll hardly feel a thing.

With a range of onboard facilities such as a swimming pool, sauna, lounges, bars, an onboard helicopter and talks from expedition experts, this ship will provide you with the opportunity to see some of the most remote, ice-locked parts of the Arctic without skimping on creature comforts.
