MV Quest was built in Denmark in 1992 to serve as a ferry on Greenland’s west coast. She was redesigned into an expedition ship in 2004/2005 and now works as a comfortable expedition vessel. In 2018, she underwent substantial renovations. Quest accommodates 53 persons in 26 cabins, all of which have a sea view and private facilities. Upper and lower berths are available in the triple rooms on deck 3. The remaining cabins contain either two lower berths or a double bed. Your cabin also has a workstation with a chair and plenty of storage space for clothes and equipment. Superior cabins on decks 3 and 4 are spacious and feature a separate seating area as well as a TV/DVD. The Owner’s cabin, located on deck 4, close to the Captain’s bedroom, contains a double bed, two wide picture windows, a seating area, and a TV/DVD.
In between landings, delicious meals are served in the dining area. The panorama lounge offers breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery. You can listen to interesting lectures about the area’s flora, fauna, history, and glaciology here. There is also a well-stocked bar and a small library in the lounge. The ship offers large viewing decks where you may take in the scenery and look for seabirds, whales, and polar bears. The ship has a European Captain and there is a friendly and informal atmosphere on board. Traveling on this small expedition ship provides a completely different experience than on a larger and more traditional cruise ship.
