Welcome aboard the brand new Ocean Albatros. This stunning, purpose-built polar cruise ship will be deployed to a large selection of expedition cruise destinations, Antarctica, the Arctic, and a variety of exciting new destinations in between.

Ocean Albatros offers a total of 95 comfortable staterooms and suites, all with unobstructed sea view, and most with their own balcony. Like her sistership, the Ocean Victory, her amenities include two restaurants, a wellness area, the “Albatros Nordic Bar”, an open deck dining facility, a modern lecture lounge, and other state-of-the-art amenities. The Ocean Albatros will also offer a unique panorama sauna and a total of 12 cabins dedicated to solo arctic adventurers with no single supplement.

Carrying the highest Polar Code 6 certification and built to Ice class 1A, Ocean Albatros is the ideal vessel for small-ship cruising in the Arctic thanks to her sturdy construction and X-Bow®-Infinity construction. This gives high stability in rough arctic weather and allows for the smoothest travel through high waves. She also has Solas 2012 classification which means she complies with the highest safety requirements for merchant vessels.

Ocean Albatros is one of a brand-new generation of low-energy vessels. She is equipped with 4 ultra-efficient diesel engines and 2 electric propulsion units, all of which are electronically controlled to optimize fuel consumption and performance.

Ocean Albatros's take on sustainable traveling

Foremost among our sustainability goals are actively reducing the impact and emission of our vessels, investing in new technology, and continuously improving our existing resources. We have also installed a new low-emission engine in our veteran vessel, Ortelius. This engine complies with all the latest environmental legislation. Another of our important commitments to sustainability is our use of low-sulfur marine gas oil (LSMGO), which has a sulfur content of less than 0.1 percent.\n\nWe limit onboard waste production by recycling as often as we can as well as banning single-use plastics. This ship does not use straws, plastic cups, or any individually wrapped butter, yogurt, and jam. This vessel has a water treatment system and desalination system that uses reverse osmosis, allowing us to eliminate the use of plastic water bottles on board. Rather, guests receive a reusable water bottle they can refill on the vessel. Bathrooms are equipped with biodegradable shampoo and soap in recycled packing, further limiting our use of plastics.

Ocean Albatros Arctic and Antarctic cruises

I reached out to Polartours while researching options for an expedition cruise to Antarctica. I was impressed with their prompt and attentive follow-up! Natalya scheduled a video call immediately and while on the call took the time to carefully listen to my family's requirements and constraints. She then came back as promised within two days with a host of options for our consideration. Her follow through was terrific with relevant added details as needed and, of course, gentle reminders on looming deadlines. If the entire Polartours team is like her, you can do a lot worse than reaching out to them to plan out a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

Hondius

We are proud to welcome you aboard *Hondius*, the world's first Polar Class 6 vessel. Purpose-built for demanding Antarctic exploration, *Hondius* meets the latest and highest Lloyd’s Register standards for ice-strengthened cruise ships. Built to exceed the Polar Code requirements adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), *Hondius* is the most flexible, advanced, innovative Antarctic cruise vessel currently operating. Her modern design allows you to enjoy genuine exploration that will bring you closer to the real Antarctic than ever before. Huge expense and technical skill have gone into making *Hondius* supremely comfortable and environmentally sustainable. No other polar cruise vessel can match her for amenities and entertainment or her environmental credentials. *Hondius* features measures such as LED lighting throughout, high-efficiency steam heating, biodegradable paints and lubricants, and a state-of-the-art power management system that minimizes fuel burn and CO2 emissions. All this invisible technology means that you get to enjoy one of nature's last wilderness regions as much as possible while leaving little impact as you go. *Hondius* offers high-quality accommodation for only 170 passengers across her six grand suites with balconies, eight junior suites, eight superior cabins, 11 twin deluxe cabins, 14 twin window cabins, as well as 27 twin porthole cabins, two triple porthole cabins, and four quadruple porthole cabins. Her public spaces are large, with one whole deck devoted to a huge observation lounge and separate lecture room. It's here that her crew of Antarctic experts will entertain and teach with talks and lectures on Antarctic geology, geography, wildlife, and human history. Despite the comfort offered by *Hondius*' charming mid-century decor, we know that Antarctic shore and near-shore exploration is the star of the show. That's why *Hondius*' itineraries aim to minimize time at sea. To give you maximum contact with Antarctic wildlife and nature, Hondius operates a fleet of tough, rigid-hull inflatable Zodiac boats to ensure swift and safe landings. To aid your comfort, Hondius has two separate gangways and a sheltered indoor embarkation platform which can also be used for other outdoor activities such as sea kayaking. Fitted with advanced stabilizers and powerful engines, *Hondius* is able to react quickly, and her flexible itineraries allow the expert crew to reach the best wildlife encounters and take advantage of changing sea conditions to bring you the best of the Antarctic. Her 72 crew will ensure that even if your time onboard is brief, it will be exceptionally comfortable!
