Greg Mortimer

Named after the famous Australian mountaineer, the Greg Mortimer is a 160 capacity ship operating itineraries for Aurora Expeditions in Antarctica and the Arctic. The Greg Mortimer has been custom-built for cruising polar waters and boasts a Ulstein X-Bow, which allows for faster, more comfortable speeds, as well as lower fuel consumption and fewer emissions.

Exploration & Discovery

The Greg Mortimer is equipped with a fleet of 15 Zodiacs which are easily accessible from one of four sea-level loading platforms. The Zodiacs are frequently used throughout every voyage on Greg Mortimer and can be deployed, weather permitting, up to twice daily.

The ship also boasts two hydraulic platforms located at the front of the ship. A unique feature of the Greg Mortimer, these can be moved out over the water and allow for a dedicated observation area that comes in particularly useful for spotting wildlife such as whales and polar bears.

For exploration ashore, activities such as kayaking, climbing and even snowshoeing are all offered on selected itineraries, with each excursion led by Aurora Expeditions’ highly trained team of expedition specialists.

Greg Mortimer Staterooms

There are 80 comfortable staterooms on the Greg Mortimer, all of which provide the perfect space in which to relax between adventures. There are five stateroom categories to choose from, ranging from those with a porthole window to those with a spacious balcony.

All of the staterooms on the Greg Mortimer boast en-suite bathroom facilities, a separate seating area and beds which can changed into either a twin or double configuration. Connecting staterooms are also an option for those who wish to cruise as a family.

Greg Mortimer Dining

There is one main dining venue on Greg Mortimer which can comfortably seat all of the ship’s guests. All meals onboard are served here and are prepared by a team of expert chefs, with enough choice and variation to suit even the most discerning of palettes. House wines, beers and softs drinks are included throughout dinner, while complimentary tea, coffee and snacks are also available outside of the main dining times.

Greg Mortimer Entertainment

As is common on many expedition ships, Greg Mortimer does not have a ‘traditional’ entertainment programme. Instead, you are invited to attend a range of fascinating talks and lectures given by Aurora Expeditions’ team of specialists. Closely tied to the destination you are exploring, these informative briefings will enhance the time you spend off the ship exploring.
