Kapitan Khlebnikov

Cruise on board Quark Expeditions's Kapitan Khlebnikov

Built to navigate some of the most remote destinations on earth, the Kapitan Khlebnikov began its career escorting marine flotillas through the pack ice of the Russian Arctic and Northern Siberia. In 1992 it became a passenger vessel, notching up some serious achievements in its 24 years of service. This ship boasts more polar visits than any other passenger ship, has circumnavigated the Antarctic continent twice, and has transited the Northwest Passage more than any other expedition ship in history.

The Kapitan Khlebnikov combines power and comfort, carrying 112 passengers on Arctic ice-breaking expeditions. It features 51 cabins, all with external views, private facilities, a desk in each room, and large closets.

Public amenities include a lounge and bar, heated indoor plunge pool, gymnasium and theatre-style auditorium where daily presentations are hosted by the ship's dedicated expedition team. Other features include a library, shop and has a resident doctor aboard.

When it comes to adventure, the Kapitan Khlebnikov is primed for expeditions. It has helicopters for sightseeing tours, a fleet of zodiacs, and an open bridge policy that allows passengers to witness the intricacies of an experienced ice-breaker at work.

The Kapitan Khlebnikov is a unique vessel that takes passengers where other ships cannot on voyages that have to be experienced to be believed.
