The Arctic is unforgiving; Riding in this icebreaker isn’t

While it may be frigid and wet on deck, the crew of a modern icebreaker can expect creature comforts inside the ship. Cabins on board the MSV Nordica are small but functional, with a desk, a TV and a bathroom. There are three big meals a day, but the ship has two gyms and two saunas to burn off the calories. There are movie nights, and the crew can use the ship’s satellite internet connection to keep in touch with family and friends.
