The pri­vately owned and proudly Cana­dian cruise spe­cial­ist, One Ocean Ex­pe­di­tions, will soon be ex­pand­ing its ices­trength­ened, pur­pose-built eet to in­clude RCGS Res­o­lute. The new ves­sel will in­crease ca­pac­ity and head into new des­ti­na­tions in 2019, in­clud­ing South and Cen­tral Amer­ica and the Is­lands of the North At­lantic, with en­hanced ex­pe­di­tion cruise pro­gram­ing of an en­vi­ron­men­tal, sci­enti c, ed­u­ca­tional and ac­tive na­ture.

One Ocean Ex­pe­di­tions is car­ry­ing a max­i­mum of 146 pas­sen­gers in com­fort, com­bin­ing an ar­ray of pre­miere ameni­ties with OOE’S unique small-ship pro­gram­ming, ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties and nu­mer­ous ac­tiv­i­ties, tai­lored to guests’ in­di­vid­ual in­ter­ests. This new ad­di­tion joins One Ocean Nav­i­ga­tor / Akademik Ioffe and One Ocean Voy­ager / Akademik Sergey Vav­ilov, car­ry­ing 96 and 92 pas­sen­gers re­spec­tively. RCGS Res­o­lute has the ca­pac­ity to host and op­er­ate an in­creased num­ber of pro­grams si­mul­ta­ne­ously, en­sur­ing the small-group com­fort and in­ti­macy found on all OOE ves­sels.

With a name of his­toric pro­por­tion, tting for a small ex­pe­di­tion cruise ves­sel of ro­bust in­dus­try rep­u­ta­tion, RCGS Res­o­lute is named af­ter the Inuit town of Res­o­lute, in Nu­navut ter­ri­tory, which in turn was named af­ter the Mer­chant Navy ves­sel, HMS Res­o­lute by Cana­dian set­tlers. Built in 1850, the mer­chant Navy ves­sel was lost in the Arc­tic ice from 1854-55, when it was then dis­cov­ered by the U.S. and re­turned to the Bri­tish Royal Navy from 1856. Her lin­eage con­tin­ues with sev­eral of her relics re­sid­ing in the White House’s Oval Of ce.

Along with her his­tor­i­cal roots, OOE’S RCGS Res­o­lute is proud to carry the ship pre x of The Royal Cana­dian Ge­o­graph­i­cal So­ci­ety (RCGS), OOE’S ex­clu­sive ma­rine travel part­ner in ed­u­ca­tion, en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­ence, and ex­plo­ration. With this long­stand­ing part­ner­ship, OOE guests have the ex­clu­sive op­por­tu­nity to learn from and in­ter­act with RCGS Fel­lows in­clud­ing world-renowned sci­en­tists, ed­u­ca­tors, re­searchers, nat­u­ral­ists, ma­rine bi­ol­o­gists, artists, his­to­ri­ans and pho­tog­ra­phers on board.

RCGS Res­o­lute will be sail­ing into Syd­ney, Nova Sco­tia on Canada’s East Coast, for her “recom­mis­sion­ing” Oc­to­ber 19th, 2018. RCGS Res­o­lute’s in­au­gu­ral voy­age will de­part from Ushuaia, Ar­gentina, Novem­ber 16th, 2018 on the “Antarc­tica - Off the Beaten Track’” voy­age.
