Fifty Years of Victory is the largest, most sophisticated and powerful icebreaker ever constructed. This nuclear-powered small ship is a true expedition vessel, equipped with an onboard helicopter for spectacular aerial sightseeing.
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 icebelt 18 feet wide, breaks through ice up to 10 feet thick. She carries the highest ice class rating possible. The icebreaker is driven by two nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower. In open water, top speed can be as much as 21.4 knots.
Common Areas Aboard Fifty Years of Victory
50 Years of Victory carries 128 passengers and provides ample public space: featuring an Aft Saloon and Forward Lounge, in addition to a bar, library and single-seating dining room. The Aft Saloon converts from a presentation room during the day to a place to dance and socialize in the evening. For relaxing, there is an indoor pool and two saunas. There is a baseketball court and a gym with windows, so you won’t miss a moment of passing scenery while you exercise. A shop and massage services provide other diversions on long expeditions.
The ship is equipped with a helicopter and a fleet of Zodiacs for shore transfers and landings, both extending the vessel's ability to reach ice-locked, remote Arctic islands en route from the North Pole.
