We’re delighted to welcome you to the new premium infinity vessel, Ocean Victory, whose maiden Antarctic cruise will begin in November 2021. This makes her one of the most modern small ship Antarctic exploration vessels.

Built to be a robust and capable polar explorer, she’s also designed with a touch of class. Her 93 comfortable guest cabins all feature ocean views and almost all of them feature a private ocean balcony.

Other standout features of Ocean Victory include several restaurants, a dedicated wellness area, a Nordic Bar, an open deck dining facility, a modern lecture lounge, and many other amenities. You will not lack comfort as you discover the wonders of Antarctica.

With the highest Polar Code 6 certification and Ice Class 1A, Ocean Victory sports a revolutionary X-Bow® which provides high stability in rough Antarctic conditions. This feature, along with her sturdy construction, makes her a true “go anywhere” explorer, and she enjoys the highest SOLAS 2012 certification for safety and seaworthiness.

Mindful of offering a minimal impact to the Antarctic environment, Ocean Victory will implement a Green Initiative Program. She is one of a brand-new generation of low-energy vessels, with 4 ultra-efficient diesel engines and 2 electric propulsion systems. Everything is computer-controlled to optimize her fuel consumption and performance as she navigates through Antarctic waters.

Ocean Victory'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.

Wir haben Ende Januar 2023 eine Kreuzfahrt in die Antarktis an Bord der Ocean Victory gemacht. Die Kreuzfahrt war ein fantastisches Erlebnis. Die Landschaft der Antarktis ist atemberaubend, buchstäblich nicht von dieser Welt. Das Wetter war sehr wechselhaft, aber selbst schlechtes Wetter konnte uns nicht davon abhalten, das Erlebnis zu genießen. Wir haben alle erwarteten Tiere gesehen, wenn auch nicht in großer Zahl (dafür sollte man meines Wissens nach besser nach Südgeorgien fahren). Aber es ist wirklich die Landschaft, die es wert ist. Das Schiff war großartig, sehr luxuriös und komfortabel, der Service war ausgezeichnet. Das Expeditionsteam war hervorragend, es hat wirklich einen großen Unterschied gemacht. Vielen Dank an Polartours für den Vorschlag für die Kreuzfahrt, den guten Preis und die freundliche und professionelle Abwicklung!

We cruised to Antarctica on board Ocean Victory at the end of January 2023. The cruise was a fantastic experience. The landscape of Antarctica are mind-blowing, literally out of this world. We had a variety of weather, but even bad weather did not deter from enjoying the experience. We did see all the expected fauna, though not in large quantities ( for this I understand it is better to go to South Georgia). But it is really the landscape that makes this worth it. The ship was great, very luxurious and comfortable, service was excellent. The expedition team were outstanding, they really made a big difference. Thanks to Polartours for proposing the cruise, getting us a good price, and generally dealing with everything in a friendly and professional manner !

Nous avons effectué une croisière en Antarctique à bord de l'Ocean Victory à la fin du mois de janvier 2023. La croisière a été une expérience fantastique. Les paysages de l'Antarctique sont époustouflants, littéralement hors du monde. Nous avons eu des conditions météorologiques variées, mais même le mauvais temps ne nous a pas empêchés de profiter de l'expérience. Nous avons vu toute la faune attendue, mais pas en grande quantité (pour cela, je crois savoir qu'il vaut mieux aller en Géorgie du Sud). Mais c'est vraiment le paysage qui en vaut la peine. Le bateau était génial, très luxueux et confortable, le service était excellent. L'équipe d'expédition était exceptionnelle, ils ont vraiment fait la différence. Merci à Polartours de nous avoir proposé la croisière, de nous avoir obtenu un bon prix et de s'être occupé de tout de manière amicale et professionnelle !

So many once in a life-time moments. I loved the wildlife encounters. Tens of thousands of penguins on the beach. Interactions of penguins and fur seal pups. Amazing to watch a leopard seal hunt and catch a penguin. Who knew that icebergs could be so amazing and fascinating. (Copied from Swoop Antarctica)

It is a very comfortable well appointed ship and thankfully very stable. I did have a problem with my cabin when after two days there was a loud, metallic banging noise which seemd to be from above and outside the porthole. I asked to be moved when it didnt get fixed and I went up from deck 3 to 4 and a very nice cabin with a window. Lucky me! The food was very good too. My only complaint was the lack of hot plates & often the 'hot' food was cold too, for breakfast/lunch up in the deck 8 restaurant. (Copied from Swoop Antarctica)

Well Antarctica was impressive with all its splendor.. it’s vastness, whiteness. And for a few of the coves we were able to get in. But South Georgia.. was the highlight with so much wildlife and the history. The museum in Grytviken and the church were also very interesting. All the penguins - thousands of them at a time was very overwhelming at times. And Malvinas was good to as we learned more about its history. (Copied from Swoop Antarctica)

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!
