Our home away from home, very comfortable.
Called The Akademik Ioffe (pronounced..Akademic Yoffay)
is a Russian research ship when it isn’t on duty in the summer months of Antarctica, on our trip we had approx 90 passengers and 40+ crew of all nationalities.
This ship has a sister ship that is in the Arctic while this one is in Antarctica….and the next season they swap.
I have to say the Aussies out numbered every one else, we were around 75%.
Great trip, great people, great place.
