Aurora Expeditions appoints CMI Leisure Management as on-board catering provider

54-passenger Polar Pioneer
Aurora Expeditions, has appointed CMI Leisure Management as its official catering provider for polar expedition ship Polar Pioneer.

Commencing in June 2016, CMI Leisure Management will manage all on-board catering requirements for Aurora Expeditions’ 54 passengers.

CMI Leisure Management has extensive experience in hotel and catering management services for polar expedition vessels, sourcing quality produce and providing a team of qualified professionals who can cater under the difficult conditions that lend themselves to the Polar regions.
All produce will be sourced locally by CMI prior to the ship’s departure, with fresh fruit and vegetables, and freshly baked bread and pastries, served wherever possible.

1,753gt Polar Pioneer was originally built as an ice-strengthened research vessel in Finland in 1982, refurbished in 2000 and converted into a passenger ship for polar expeditions.
