What we love about the Ocean Endeavour

Offers 4 different lounges
There are 4 zodiac disembarkation points onboard, for getting on and off the ship efficiently and quickly.
Included yoga classes.
Known for having a great gym onboard.
The Ocean Endeavour is a breath of fresh air compared to some of the Antarctic cruise ships of old and it’s quickly become one of our favorites thanks to the things they do differently on board.
Firstly, the Ocean Endeavour provides a class-leading ratio of 1 crew member per 8 passengers, giving you a more personal, informative, and comfortable Antarctic adventure.
The ship also features a focus on health and wellness. The onboard spa, gym, and sauna are overseen by the ship’s health and wellness expert, and there is a dedicated medical center with a permanent onboard doctor and paramedic.
Life aboard Ocean Endeavour is as relaxed or as engaged as you want it to be. The onboard spa, library, hot tub, sauna, gift shop, multiple lounges, and viewing areas offer comfort and relaxation. Her fleet of modern Zodiac boats will bring you closer to the wildlife and stunning beauty of Antarctica than you thought possible, while her unique fly deck offers unobstructed 360° views from a high vantage point.
Ocean Endeavour certainly has a cool vibe about her, and yet her programming is designed to enhance your understanding and appreciation of the Antarctic regions you’ll visit. Presentations, workshops, entertainment, and special events complete the excursions.
From dances to polar plunges, from lounge concerts to theme parties, you'll have a great time with your fellow passengers and crew members!

Ocean Endeavour'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.
