Ocean Atlantic is the perfect vessel for expedition cruising in Antarctic and Arctic waters! Newly renovated in 2016 and with an international ice class rating of 1B, she is one of the strongest ships operating in Antarctica. Her high maneuverability, shallow draft and strong engines allow for extended voyages into isolated fjords, creating exciting adventures for any Antarctica and Arctic traveler.

Ocean Atlantic is newly renovated (2016) with elegant common areas and accommodation for 198 passengers. The ship was built in 1985 and underwent an extensive rebuild in 2010. With a length of 140m, she has ample space on the multiple decks for several lecture halls, a relaxed restaurant serving 4-star international cuisine, professionally staffed bars, and observation platforms – and even a pool.

All common areas on the Erickson Deck feature large panel windows, enabling passengers to quickly spot passing whales and photographic sights from the comfort of indoor lounges.

All private cabins are stylishly appointed and feature individual bathroom facilities, phone for internal calls, individual temperature controls, and TV. Ideal for relaxation, the vessels’ accommodation ranges in size from 11 - 35 m2 and are designed with either portholes or windows.

Daily shore landings at penguin rookeries, research stations, and other Antarctic wonders are made possible by her fleet of 20 Zodiacs.

Ocean Atlantic's take on sustainable traveling

The 3 keywords aboard Ocean Atlantic are: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle. As an example, plastic bags from parka jackets are reused as bin liners. All single-use plastic items are being eliminated, such as disposable cups, stirrers, and straws. Refillable water bottles are given to guests at the beginning of each voyage, and only reusable hard plastic mugs and regular glasses are used for BBQs and special events. Only paper straws are available upon request and wooden items have replaced the plastic ones. There are no individually packaged condiments or packs of butter yogurt or jam used onboard.

Recycling stations are implemented in key public areas for guest use and only biodegradable products are used, with proper labeling to promote the awareness of green initiatives among guests. Only phosphate-free, non- or minimally-toxic, biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative, and eco-friendly cleaning products are used.

We also offer a midnight snack between 10 pm and 12 am.

We only prepare seafood that is either caught or farmed in ways that consider the long-term vitality of harvested species and the well-being of our oceans, as well as the livelihoods of fisheries-dependent communities. The hotel management uses MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) to ensure the purchase of species approved as sustainable.
