Janssonius

Ship Overview

Operated by: Oceanwide Expeditions

New itineraries coming soon!

Janssonius will come equipped with a number of advanced systems and features specifically designed for safe, swift, and flexible polar voyages throughout the Arctic, Antarctica, and the sub-Antarctic. She will have a protected indoor Zodiac loading area that can also be used for sea-based activities such as kayaking, and there will be two separate gangways to further facilitate ship-to-shore operations. Her stern and bow thrusters will also enable Janssonius to drift or remain comfortably stationary.
 
One of the decks will be a dedicated observation lounge complete with a separate lecture room hosting a wide range of engaging, interactive, multilingual lectures and presentations. Numerous cabin categories will also be available on Janssonius: spacious suites, superiors, twins, and quadruple cabins all decorated in a classic mid-century modern style. 
 
Six of the suites will have balconies. There will also be eight superior cabins with balconies, 19 twin deluxe cabins, 14 twin window cabins, 31 twin porthole cabins, two triple porthole cabins, and four quadruple porthole cabins.
 
The ship will measure 107 metres (350 feet) long, and her beam will provide a width of 17.6 metres (58 feet). She will be powered by two main engines delivering 4,200 kW and enabling speeds of up to 15 knots, the propulsion system will include an adjustable pitch propellor, flexible power management, and a shaft generator as opposed to a diesel-driven generator. This will keep Janssonius at the lowest fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission possible.
 
But these won't be the only environmental features of Janssonius. The ship will employ LED interior and exterior lighting, biodegradable paints and lubricants, steam heating that uses a minimum of electricity, and waste heat that will be reused for the production of fresh water. In other words, passengers who sail on Janssonius will experience the polar regions as much as possible while impacting them as little as possible.

Features

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 Janssonius guest, you will enjoy cuisine, surroundings, and service that starkly contrast the rugged world just outside your window. The passenger capacity certificate for Janssonius 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 Janssonius. 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, Janssonius 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, Janssonius employs a tough fleet of rigid-hull inflatable Zodiac boats that guarantee swift and safe landing operations for all explorers at the same time. Janssoniushas two separate gangways and a sheltered indoor Zodiac embarkation platform that can also be used for special outdoor activities, such as kayaking.
