m/v Janssonius


Janssonius is Oceanwide’s newest, most advanced vessel Polar Class 6 cruise ship, exceeding all the latest green requirements of the Polar Code as adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) for safe and environmentally sound ship operation in the polar regions.

Using some of the latest sustainable technology, Janssonius employs LED lighting, steam heat, biodegradable paints and lubricants, and flexible power management systems to keep fuel efficiency high and CO2 emissions low. Janssonius is also equipped with stabilizers that make her highly suitable for swift, safe, and nimble exploration of Arctic and Antarctic waters.

Janssonius offers comfortable accommodation for 170 passengers in six grand suites with balconies, eight junior suites, eight superior cabins, 11 twin deluxe cabins, 14 twin window cabins, 27 twin porthole cabins, two triple porthole cabins, and four quadruple porthole cabins.

One deck of Janssonius is reserved for multilanguage lectures and presentations in a large observation lounge as well as in a separate lecture room. While the ship’s interiors are cosy and classically conceived in mid-century modern décor, her tough small-scale design enables her to react quickly to moment-by-moment weather changes and wildlife opportunities.

Oceanwide’s main focus is always exploration, wildlife, and outdoor activities. For this reason, Janssonius carries a powerful fleet of Zodiac boats to guarantee swift and safe transit from ship to shore. She also has two separate gangways for efficient outings as well as an indoor Zodiac boarding area that can also be used for special outdoor activities such as kayaking.

While cruising, Janssonius carries 72 crew and staff members, including expedition and hotel staff, all of whom will be at your service during your polar expedition trip. Janssonius is equipped with two main engines and can reach a maximum speed of 15 knots.
