50 Years of Victory
50 Years of Victory is the largest, most sophisticated, and most powerful icebreaker ever constructed. Twenty years in the making, 50 Years of Victory is the first Arktika-class icebreaker to have a spoon-shaped bow. Boosting her efficiency is the all-new automated digital control system. The ship, designed with a stainless steel ice belt 18 feet wide, breaks through ice up to 29.2 feet thick. The icebreaker is driven by two nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower. In open water, her top speed can be as high as 21.4 knots.
50 Years of Victory provides ample public space, featuring an aft saloon and forward lounge, in addition to a bar and library. The aft saloon converts from a presentation room during the day to a place to dance and socialize in the evening. For relaxing, there is an indoor pool and two saunas. The gym has windows so that you won’t miss a moment of passing scenery as you exercise. A shop and massage services provide other diversions.
