The s/v Rembrandt van Rijn schooner is more than a century old and has made the transition from a working fishing vessel to a luxury passenger ship that cruises among small islands and through unrivalled landscapes.
The ship has a 12-strong crew, with two expert tour guides, and can accommodate up to 33 passengers in 16 tastefully decorated cabins. The Rembrandt looks mightily impressive with its white sails raised, blowing in the wind, and travelling at 6.5 knots. Guests are invited to dress comfortably and casually, standing on the deck as the chilly winds lift the sails in search of whale swimming by.
Three simple but tasty meals are served every day onboard, prepared by the experienced chef and served in a buffet style. Guests are invited to explore both land and sea, trekking over ice-coated islands floating in the sea, and through rich Arctic flora and fauna at the top of the world.
Take to the waves in one of the world’s oldest surviving sailing ships and relive an age of sail long disappeared.
