When Do You Want To Go?

Small Ship For Just 117 Passengers

The Ocean Adventurer is a classic and very popular ship for polar exploration. Originally built in 1975, she underwent a USD13 million conversion in 1998 and now enjoys a proud reputation as a well-appointed and elegant expedition ship.

Carrying just 117 passengers you are assured of an intimate cruising experience with lots of focus on the expedition and maximised time onshore. It is fairly typical to make at least 2 landings per day (weather and conditions permitting).

The hub of the ship is the main lounge at the front of the ship which has panoramic windows, comfortable seating and is where the team conduct their briefings each day. The restaurant serves a daily changing menu buffet style for breakfast and lunch with dinner served course by course at your table. You will also find a small library which offers a quiet space ideal for catching up on photos as well as a gift shop for purchasing souvenirs and any essentials you may have forgotten.

The ship has six types of cabins including triple and twin categories. All cabins offer ocean views through portholes or picture windows and each cabin has a private bathroom, desk, chair and storage.

If you are prepared to share your cabin, then there is the benefit of no single supplement. There are also 3 suites on the Captains Deck which offer a twin beds, picture windows and lounge area.

The Ocean Adventurer is fully equipped for expeditions including a fleet of modern zodiacs, kayaks (additional charge) and a very experienced team of expedition staff, that will ensure you get the most out of your polar cruise experience.

The ship is also going through a further refurbishment for 2017, with new features and cabin types coming soon.

Features Include:

Seven categories of accommodation, private bathrooms with hot water, lounge, restaurant, library, gift shop, gym, fleet of zodiacs, experienced expedition staff, kayaks (extra charge),
