10 Living on the Atomic Icebreaker

Living on the Atomic Icebreaker

Posted on June 24, 2014 by tim


What is it like to live on such a ship? Is it like living on a luxury cruise liner or is it more like staying in the cabin of a truck? We can find this out thanks to Sergei, who continues posting his photos from the trip he took on this large ship of the Russian fleet.

You might be surprised but there is even a room on this ship where the crew members can play volleyball!

Besides 155 cabins, this ship has the following amenities: a restaurant, a club cabin, a swimming pool, two saunas, a gym, a volleyball room, a basketball room and a table tennis room, as well as a library and some more!

Looks like this is a library.

As we mentioned in previous posts on the topic, those trips are sponsored by the oil drilling companies of Russia.

So you can see the uniform reflects their logo.

A Soviet relic.

A gym.

Even a punching bag. Which you can’t hit with your legs, though.

“Don’t hit the bag with your legs!”

“bring back the bench!”

Treadmills are here too.

Crew members can stay in a tropical resort right at the same time as their large ship crushes the ice somewhere close to the North pole.

Indulging themselves in swimming.

And take a trip to a spa with saunas.

Who can tell that you are at the North pole?

Team games.

You can see they play basketball here too.

The ship is equipped with a small hospital.

A laundry room.

All these things help the crew to relax after working in the extreme cold of -40 and below.

Thanks to Sergey for this new exciting set of photos.

    It is so typical of Russian/Soviet industry.Capable of building a sophisticated, world beating, ship but they have to import the washing machines from Germany. A pity the pictures were not of a more technical nature though. After all gyms and saunas are not really newsworthy.
