April 2020 Two Russian research vessels that offered expeditions in the Polar Regions won’t sail again as cruise ships. The Akademik Ioffe and Akademik Sergey Vavilov had previously been chartered to now-defunct One Ocean Expeditions, and will no longer be available to charter for cruise operations. Since being recalled to Russia last May, the vessels have sat idle and are now being modernized for a return to their careers as research vessels. “The ships are not available for any customers since they are undergoing modernization and will be thereafter used for research purposes,” said a statement from the ship’s owners, the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology Russian Academy of Sciences.

Aug. 25-2018 One Ocean Expeditions’ Akademik Ioffe that ran aground in Kugaaruk, Nunavut, on Friday, has reportedly been refloated, according to Canadian sources. All the passengers have been moved to the sister ship, the Akademik Sergey Vavilov.There were a total of 162 people aboard the grounded ship, including passengers. scientists and crew. While the Akademik Ioffe was said to be taking on water, the hull damage was limited, according to a company statement.
