Quark Expeditions, a specialist in polar adventures, has released new renderings of its new polar expedition ship set to sail in the Antarctic next year.
“We are proud and excited to see the vision behind Ultramarine come to life,” said Andrew White, president of Quark Expeditions. The renderings of the public spaces were revealed, including the ship’s main restaurant, panorama lounge, lecture theatre, ready room, polar boutique, spa, sauna and fitness centre.
In addition to its portfolio of off-ship adventure options, which will include activities such as flightseeing, heli-hiking and heli-skiing, Ultramarine will provide guests with 102 suites across nine categories, including six solo suites with floor-to-ceiling windows and the largest entry-level twin suites of its class.
Each suite has been designed to keep guests “inspired by, and connected to, the breathtaking polar landscapes outside” and will include spacious entryways, spa-inspired bathrooms with heated floors throughout and premium sleep zones.
“An ultra-immersive, ultra-inspiring, ultra-exciting polar experience”
White added: “From the bold exterior to the comfortable, contemporary interior, our internal and external teams have come together to create a truly unique ship that will present unprecedented possibilities for our guests. This one-of-a-kind ship will provide passengers from across the globe an ultra-immersive, ultra-inspiring, ultra-exciting polar experience second to none.”
“Three decades of polar exploration has taught us a lot”
White concluded: “Three decades of polar exploration has taught us a lot — and one of the lessons we’ve taken to heart is that exceptional off-ship experiences are heightened by exceptional on-ship experiences. I’m happy to say Ultramarine will deliver both.”
