Vessel Type: Small Ship
Passenger Capacity: 12
Built/Refurbished : 1976/2021
We are proud to present the latest addition to our fleet of small expedition ships, M/S Virgo. She was built in 1976 to work as a buoy-laying vessel for Swedish maritime authorities. In 2021 she was bought (partly by one of the owners of M/S Stockholm) and is now being rebuild for a new career as a small and comfortable expedition ship in the Arctic. M/S Virgo takes up to 12 passengers in six single cabins, two double superior cabins and one double cabin. All the cabins are large with separate beds and private facilities (WC/shower). Bed linen and towels are provided.
M/S Virgo is very spacious both on deck and inside. In the dining room you are treated to delicious meals and the menu can be adapted to any special dietary needs.
The atmosphere on board M/S Virgo is relaxed and friendly. Travelling with this small expedition ship offers an entirely different experience and perspective than you get on a larger and more conventional cruise ship.
M/S Virgo is being rebuilt especially for Arctic photo tourism. As part of the photography and wildlife experience she has a spacious lounge on deck two with good view and plenty of space for photo editing, charging batteries or listening to lectures.
