The "50 Years of Victory" is the largest and most modern nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world.
Power, state-of-the-art technology and comfort all rolled into one. The "50 Years of Victory" is the largest and most modern nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world. For those with an appreciation of such vessels, the "Victory" is a new generation ship, an upgrade of the Arktika-class, the most powerful icebreakers in the world.
Among its state-of-the-arts features are:
- a spoon-shaped bow designed for greater icebreaking ability,
- an automated, digitalized control system,
- the most up-to-date nuclear safeguards and protection systems.
As a working icebreaker, the "Victory" is vastly more suitable to life onboard than was its predecessor the "Yamal". Though its cabins and suites are as comfortable and spacious as were those on the "Yamal", the "Victory" offers its passengers much more room for socializing and get-togethers.
Among public spaces aboard there are: dining room (seating is unreserved); Aft Saloon for lectures, presentations and socializing; Bar & Lounge with front view; Library & Lounge; Gym; two saunas and swimming pool with heated sea water. There is also a clinic on board with passenger doctor (licensed).
The Arctic is changeable and unpredictable: now the sky is gloomy and in a moment the Arctic has changed its mood and "smiled" with a bright sun or rainbow. However the Arctic surprises will not catch our guests flatfooted neither during the day nor in the night - all our passenger cabins have exterior views.
All the windows in cabins open so the travelers have the opportunity not only to see Arctic but breathe it, or hear it any moment. All the suites and cabins have private facilities with bathtub or shower. Please note that Arktika Suites 46 and 48 have obstructed views.
