Expedition cruise ship Polar Pioneer on its way to Scotland

The Polar Pioneer in  Øresund on June 18, 2013.

Early this morning the expedition cruise ship Polar Pioneer (71.61 m x 12.8  m) was going northwards in Øresund with Scottish Oban as its destination. The ship, now operated by the Australian cruise ship company Aurora Expeditions, is the former Russian ice-strengthened research vessel Akademik Schuleykin, built by the Finnish Laivateollisuus shipyard in 1982.

The Polar Pioneer was in 2000 converted to a small expedition cruise ship with accommodation for 54 passengers.
