The smallest expedition ship in our polar fleet, M/S Quest offers an intimate polar experience.

Maximum passengers: 53

Carrying just 53 passengers, the benefits of cruising on a small ship such as the M/S Quest include the chance to get to know everyone on board, more personal wildlife encounters and maximising time ashore with quicker Zodiac boarding. Travelling amongst fewer people also enhances the feeling of solitude as you explore some of the remotest corners of the planet.

M/S Quest was originally built in Denmark in 1992 and served as a ferry on Greenland’s west coast for over a decade. In 2004/05 she was completely renovated and now has a career as an intimate and comfortable expedition ship, most recently refurbished in 2018. Facilities on board the ship include spacious observation decks and a panorama lounge to ensure you can always enjoy the view, whether outside or inside. In the lounge you will find a well-stocked bar and a small library.

Ship Features 

  • Cabins with private ensuite bathrooms and ocean views
  • Spacious observation decks
  • Panorama lounge with bar and small library
  • Dining room
  • Registered Ice Class 1D (1B hull)

Why choose the M/S Quest?
Offering an authentic small ship experience, the M/S Quest delivers a family feel on board and a greater sense of immersion and solitude as you explore the vast polar landscapes.
