Orion II is a private yacht-like expedition cruise ship built by Cantieri Navale Ferrari of Italy. After a number of years as a private yacht, Orion II was relaunched in 2009 following an extensive technical refit. Little expense was spared with this stylish, Italian built, all-suite Mega Yacht. Orion II now offers the finest standards in small-ship cruise travel. She also has an ice-strengthened hull for voyages in the Arctic and Antarctic and is fitted with stabilisers. The expedition equipment includes Zodiacs and fast tender to deliver the Orion expedition experience. Combining luxury and service will require staffing by 68 offices and crew to serve Orion II’s capacity of 100 guests. Excellence of design, craftsmanship and quality materials combined with Orion II’s spaciousness and intimate ambience make her ideal for distinctive cultural and expedition voyages. Onboard facilities are another plus, with a theater, bar, restaurants inside and out, Jacuzzis, beauty salons, and gymnasium. Accommodation is large and space per suite is a feature, all suites having ocean views and natural light with DVD players, satellite TV’s, bar fridges and lounge settings. Quality hardware is the beginning; however it is the onboard experience that completes a five star experience. Orion Expedition Cruises venture into locations where larger ships can not access, nor could they bring their guests ashore. The onboard experience is enhanced by qualified expert expedition leaders and speakers – marine biologists, naturalists, diplomats, artists, historians, distinguished academics, explorers, and award winning chefs, ecologists, and scientists who share their specialist knowledge with guests. Orion’s vision is to create rewarding experiences that offer a connection with authenticity, revealing nature in the raw, with communities and cultures enjoying less complex existences. Orion II will continue with the philosophy of creating partnerships with the communities they visit, fathoming their beliefs, seeking shared understandings and then building on them. The Orion teams understanding of luxury includes safety, knowledge and skilled crew members who optimize the experiences allowing all those who sail on Orions to enjoy a ‘path less traveled’.
