The Arctic is unforgiving; riding in this icebreaker isn’t

The Arctic is unforgiving; riding in this icebreaker isn’t:

THE ARCTIC CIRCLE (AP) — While it may be frigid and wet on deck, the crew of a modern icebreaker can expect creature comforts inside the ship, even saunas. Cabins on board the MSV Nordica are small but functional, with a desk, a TV and an en suite bathroom. Most of the 21 regular crew work 12-hour shifts as the vessel pushes through the Arctic’s Northwest Passage. It’s also carrying a team of Associated Press journalists who are aboard to document the impact of climate change.

H/t reader squodgy:

“No mention of the elephant on the ice flows!”
