Buenos Aires: Marriott Plaza Hotel is a four-star property with a perfect location on Plaza San Martin. The hotel will host the welcome banquet, race check-in and trip briefing.
The Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergei Vavilov were designed and built as a scientific research vessels in Finland. They are very stable, quiet and comfortable. Refitting and refurbishment over the last five years oriented towards her role as an expedition cruise vessel has greatly improved the comfort and calibre of the facilities aboard the ship.
Vessel stabilization is gained through a combination of external stabilizers on her hull and a built-in ballast trimming system. The rapid transfer of ballast between special trimming tanks reduces vessel motion and coupled with a modern hull design gives us a stable platform for science and exploration.
