  • Major technical upgrades, include two new Rolls Royce engines to increase fuel efficiency & minimize the ship's carbon footprint.
  • A refreshed, contemporary new look can be enjoyed throughout the ship including the cabins, lounge, and all of the public areas.
  • Offering soft adventures in comfort, Ocean Adventurer's cruising speed of 12.5 knots puts her in the faster category of ships.

Sturdy at sea and strong in the ice, the 332-ft Ocean Adventurer is a polar expedition vessel built in 1975. She underwent a $13 million conversion in 1998 and a complete refurbishment of her cabin interiors in 2014. Another refurbishment in 2017 upgraded the ship’s technical specs, resulting in fuel efficiency and a minimized carbon footprint. Accommodating up to 128 guests, she is the perfect expedition ship for those looking for soft adventure and comfort.

Located across five decks and ranging in size from 113 to 294 square feet, the cabins come in eight different categories. Most of them are twin-bedded while some of them sleep up to three guests. They are all outward facing, and all include ensuite bathroom facilities, as well as a TV and DVD player.  The three owner’s suites are situated on the Bridge Deck, and the largest has a bathtub.
