Ocean Victory Antarctica Cruises

A modern expedition cruise ship with comfort and sustainability in mind

A polar cruise on board the Ocean Victory

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

OUR “SAVE THE WAVES PROGRAM” reduces the chemicals released into the oceans by laundry and washing systems. All laundry chemicals used onboard are biodegradable and we encourage only laundering items when they really need it.

OUR RECYCLING PROGRAM embraces the keywords: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle. All possible items are put to multiple uses, for example, outer plastic wrapping is reused as garbage liners. All single-use plastic items are being eliminated, such as disposable cups, stirrers, and straws. Refillable water bottles are given to all our 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. Wooden items have replaced the plastic ones, and instead of individual packages for condiments, yogurt, jam, or butter, small bowls and a butter pot for each table are provided.

SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD is the only kind used in our kitchens during Antarctic cruises, 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.

Reviews of Ocean Victory

Ocean Victory Solar Eclipse


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)

Ocean Victory Solar Eclipse


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)
