50 Years of Victory

Twenty years in the making, 50 Years of Victory is the first Arktika-class icebreaker to have a spoon-shaped bow. Boosting the efficiency is the all-new automated digital control system. The ship, designed with a stainless steel ice belt 5 meters (18 feet) wide, breaks through ice up to 2.5 meters (9.2 feet) thick. The icebreaker is driven by 2 nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower. In open water, top speed can be as much as 21.4 knots.

Dining

European chefs prepare excellent international cuisine using fine provisions from around the world. A European barman attends the bar which features a good selection of wines, champagne and spirits. The dining room is attended by a combination of Russian and Western Staff.

Tipping

As the customary gratuity to the ship's personnel is divided amongst the entire crew/hotel staff, the following suggested guidelines are for passengers convenience: US$9.00 - US$12.00 per person, per day. As stated, this is only a guideline and the amount passengers wish to give is at their discretion and can be added to their shipboard account.

Please note, while cruise details and inclusions are accurate at time of loading they are subject to change due to changes in cruise line practices and policies. Please check details and inclusions at time of booking.
