The Polar Star - Antarctica Cruise Ship

The Polar Star – Antarctica Cruise Ship

On my bucket list is a cruise to Antarctica. While we were in port at Ushuaia, Argentina along side us was the Polar Star. It is considered a Class 1A cruise ship, which is owned by Karlsen Shipping Norway. It is a 284-foot vessel which cruises at 11.5 knots. It was formerly used as an icebreaker, but the ship was completely retrofitted and upgraded for Antarctic expedition cruising in 2000. It can accommodate 100 passengers on its Antarctica tours. One of these days I will be one of the hundred.
