A polar cruise on board the Ocean Adventurer
The Ocean Adventurer is a comfortable vessel with spacious cabins, all of which enjoy private bathroom facilities and exterior views. Designed from the outset to carry travelers in comfort to the most remote corners of the world, Ocean Adventurer was built in 1976. She underwent extensive upgrades in 2017 and this multi-million dollar investment included complete interior renovations and updates to decor, significant technical upgrades, and the addition of a new cabin category, the Owner’s Suites. The refurbishment gave Ocean Adventurer new bathrooms in every cabin, and major upgrades to the Lounge, Dining Room, gym, and suites.
Your adventure to the Arctic will include days at sea and multiple landings and excursions. During sea days you can enjoy lectures and hands-on workshops presented by our highly knowledgeable Expedition Team, as well as plenty of time on deck spotting seabirds and arctic cetaceans such as beluga and humpback whales. Days at anchor will be packed full of multiple shore landings, Zodiac cruises, and other activities.
Whether you’ve enjoyed a relaxing day of learning or an exhausting day of adventuring, the Ocean Adventurer’s excellent onboard chefs will always ensure you are well-fed with a range of delicious meals and snacks.

Food & Drinks on board the Ocean Adventurer
There is one dining room located on the Upper Deck. While mealtimes may change due to landings and wildlife encounters, you’ll always be served three delicious meals a day.
