I joined a 9 day expedition to Antarctica in March 2017. We sailed on a 1800 ton ship called the Polar Pioneer. The captain and crew were Russian. The ship had been built in Finland in 1982 for the USSR. It was used for scientific research in the polar regions before it was purchased by the Australian company that organizes these polar trips.
