About 50 Years of Victory
The 50 Years of Victory is the world’s most powerful and sophisticated icebreaker ever to have reached the North Pole. The nuclear-powered vessel with its 75,000 horsepower has an armored steel hull designed to withstand the toughest polar conditions. Yet, the Victory offers passenger comfort with all the amenities you would expect of a top expedition ship.
