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!
