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.
