A Modern, Stable Super-Yacht

The Ocean Diamond is a modern, stable super-yacht with two stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull. The ship carries just 189 passengers and is one of the largest of the expedition ships in the polar regions, which means there is plenty of space to enjoy on-board.

The many expansive common spaces include a club lounge, panoramic observation lounge and spacious restaurant. You will also find a small gym, massage room, well stocked polar library and a gift shop for souvenirs.

There are 7 different types of accommodation including triple, twin and single cabins and 2 categories of suite. We love the 10 exclusive balcony suites on the top deck of accommodation which offer a little outside space, all to yourself.

In addition to the included programme of zodiac excursions, the ship offers numerous adventure options including snowshoeing, kayaking, cross country skiing and mountaineering (some with extra charge).

The ship's experienced expedition team are on-hand at all times to ensure you get the most out of your experience and tell you all about what you are seeing. The Ocean Diamond is the first ship in polar travel history, to offer certified CarbonNeutral® voyages.

Features Include:

7 categories of accommodation, private bathrooms with hot water, observation lounge, main lounge, bar, restaurant, library, gym, massage room, boutique, fleet of zodiacs, experienced expedition staff, kayaks (extra charge),
