Some people search for wisdom. Others for truth. Then there are those who search for views from toilets…

There’s always plenty of after-dinner cabaret, but the one thing that’s so often missing on cruise ships is a view from the toilet. Not so aboard the M/S Expedition! Operated by G Adventures, this former car ferry turned adventure cruise liner offers its passengers unforgettable voyages to the Arctic and Antarctic. And the experience continues right into the bathroom…

Described as "the best toilet I have ever seen" by at least one user, the M/S Expedition loo offers an ever-changing window on to some of the most remote and breathtaking scenery on earth. And it's reassuring to see that there is an ample supply of toilet paper for the voyage...

This truly is an exciting loo with a view. Some of the things that might have been seen from it include:
