Aimed at adventurous travelers with deep pockets and long bucket lists, shipbuilders STX France recently shared details for an expedition cruise ship called Project Ulysseas. The super sleek 200-passenger ice-class vessel would have nine decks, lots of floor-to-ceiling glass, expansive open decks and even a helicopter landing pad. Eager to tap the growing expedition cruising market, STX France hopes to make waves with its idea for the brand-new, energy-efficient, high-tech expedition ship within a sea of mostly older and repurposed expedition vessels. The idea is for Ulysseas to explore the world’s polar regions as well as tropical waters, doing both low-speed ice cruising as well as high-speed transits through the Drake Passage.
