Greg Mortimer Cruises
With centuries of collective experience in expedition cruising, the state-of-the-art Greg Mortimer has been revolutionised to be purposed built to reach the most remote places on earth. The first ship designed with the distinctive Ulstein X-BOW® allows the ship to sail the expansive oceans more comfortably and efficiently. Designed with adventure at heart, the sweeping observation decks bring you closer to nature while offering inviting communal areas and unsurpassed environmental credentials. Guests can enjoy intimate voyages with only 132 expeditioners per cruise with 85% of cabins have their own balcony. The Greg Mortimer features a modern lecture lounge, multiple observation areas, zodiac launching platforms, gym and wellness centre, jacuzzis, a mudroom and many other amenities.
This unique shape of the bow has been used on several commercial shipping vessels and has now been designed for the first passenger expedition ship. With the ability to cut through the swell, you will feel fewer disturbances and vibrations, making it a smoother experience as you sail the vast oceans. Carrying 15 Zodiacs on board, these allow you to get closer to the wonders of nature. With four dedicated sea-level launching platforms, you will be able to board the zodiacs quick and easy.
You can embark on various additional adventure activities such as diving, kayaking, climbing and ski touring. Designed for guests to explore outdoors, you will find spacious activity preparation areas, loading platforms, lockers, rapid drying areas for dry and wet suits. An added feature to the Greg Mortimer is the hydraulic viewing platforms, which fold out for unparalleled views of marine life and seabirds. Preserving and protecting the environment is important to Aurora Expeditions, with the Greg Mortimer designed to be one of the lowest polluting marine engines in the world. The ship can also utilise virtual anchoring to protect the seafloor.
