Norwegian shipbuilder and designer Ulstein has revealed the Ulstein CX146 expedition cruise ship project.
Exploration cruising is a rapidly growing segment of the cruise industry, as more travellers seek out unique and immersive travel experiences.
For operators in the travel industry, there is a potential to attract a new high-end clientele who wants exclusivity and comfort when exploring breathtaking destinations.
The Ulstein CX136 offers a unique blend of travelling in the company of others and nourishing private moments, the company claimed.
Combining luxury and exploration also means that guests can experience the best of both worlds – discovering remote and secluded areas or the city nightlife when in port. And when on board, guests can relax and enjoy luxurious amenities.
Using premium materials and state-of-the-art technology, Ulstein has ensured that every detail is designed comfortably and conveniently. From spacious cabins to gourmet dining options, plus elegant furnishings, delicate lounge areas, world-class spa facilities, sun decks, pools and hot tubs. And, of course, a beach club with easy access to tenders for short excursions and water activities.
While cruising, guests can explore and learn about unique ecosystems and wildlife.
The Ulstein CX136 is a 149 m long exploration cruise vessel fitted with the patented X-BOW. Spacious cabins cater for 126 guests with 252 persons on board. The GT per pax is set at 117.
Ulstein has a holistic approach when designing a vessel, which is essential when determining how to reduce the carbon footprint and minimise the environmental impact in operations, the company explained.
