The as yet unnamed ship will be a sister to the soon-to-be launched Greg Mortimer which was named to honour the company’s celebrated mountaineer founder.
'Phenomenal' forward bookings
Halfpenny said forward bookings for Greg Mortimer have been phenomenal, with a virtually sold-out upcoming Antarctica 2019-2020 season.
He said that already 60% of capacity for the Antarctica 2020/21 season has been sold.
Another great ship
‘We have been forced to turn away some passengers who are eager to join Aurora Expeditions on board Greg Mortimer, with its revolutionary inverted bow technology, so we are delighted to offer our customers another great ship,’ he said.
