Why We Like Virgo


    Her spacious decks low to the water – ideal for getting closer to wildlife on the ice. Her large indoor lounge on Deck 2 has immediate access to outer decks.


    Virgo has a fantastic Mud Room for your wet gear and is a place to store your boots and other equipment.


    Extra electrical outlets in common areas for charging camera batteries and laptops which is exceptionally important for photographers.


    Her compact size means we can avoid the competing interest groups of the larger ships and operate with ultimate flexibility.
