Operated by: Oceanwide Expeditions
Launched in mid 2019, the 174-passenger Hondius is the latest addition to the Oceanwide Expeditions fleet of polar ships. Engineered for flexibility above all else, Hondius is optimised for maximum engagement with nature, wildlife, and outdoor activities – because a dynamic environment demands a dynamic vessel, and there is no environment more dynamic than the polar regions. The agility of the Hondius design gives you this opportunity, delivering you to shore as fast as possible so you can enjoy these spectacular landscapes as much as possible.
FORTIFIED POLAR CLASS 6 TECHNOLOGY
Being flexible and fast does not make Hondius frail: It is one of the first civilian vessels in the world to receive a Polar Class 6 notation, the most advanced category of polar cruise ship to date. When you set foot on Hondius, you are indeed choosing the best of modern marine science.

After a full day of cruising between glaciers, hiking shorelines, and scouting for wildlife, any food looks delicious. But on Hondius you won’t be treated to just any food. With new and expanded menus, your palate is sure to be surprised at how cultivated polar cuisine can be.
ELEGANT PUBLIC AREAS, COZY LODGINGS, & SURPRISING CUISINE IN EARTH’S WILDEST REGIONS
Just because you’re sailing through the least civilised locations on Earth doesn’t mean your on-board experience has to be uncivilised. As a Hondius guest, you will enjoy cuisine, surroundings, and service that starkly contrast the rugged world just outside your window. The passenger capacity certificate for Hondius is 196 persons. One deck consists of a large observation lounge and separate lecture room, which are reserved for a wide variety of interactive workshops, exhibitions, and performances particular to Hondius. Though elegantly designed in stylish mid-century modern décor, this vessel holds true to Oceanwide’s distinctive cozy and informal atmosphere.
To keep sea time short, Hondius has been designed to allow fast, effective access to shore and near-shore activities. To give you the maximum contact with the nature and wildlife you travelled so far to see, Hondius employs a tough fleet of rigid-hull inflatable Zodiac boats that guarantee swift and safe landing operations for all explorers at the same time. Hondius has two separate gangways and a sheltered indoor Zodiac embarkation platform that can also be used for special outdoor activities, such as kayaking.
