Here she is!

The ship that will be our home during the voyage.

MS Aleksey Maryshev

And just so that you know…

The MS Aleksey Maryshev was built in Finland in 1990. She was designed as an ice-strength­ened vessel and converted in the Netherlands for passenger use, making her ideally suited for expedition cruising. The vessel is 66 metres long, with a breadth of 12.8 metres, a draft of approximately 3.5 metres and a displacement of 2000 tonnes. She has two powerful engines that allow a speed of up to 14 knots

And this, apparently, is the captain.
