Albatros Expeditions is honored to announce the acquisition of its new luxury infinity vessel, Ocean Victory, which will join our fleet from November 2021, being established as one of the most modern small ship vessels in the market. This stylish cruise ship, ideally suited for our business model of small ship expeditions, will be deployed and dedicated to varied Antarctic region voyages, with sales launching from November 2021. With a total of 93 comfortable cabins for our guests, all with a view of the ocean, (and 90% with their own balcony), several restaurants, a wellness area, an Albatros Nordic Bar, an open deck dining facility, a modern lecture lounge, and other amenities, the vessel will also be environmentally-friendly onboard, with an implementation of the Green Initiative Program, ensuring both absolute comfort and sustainability for our guests. With the highest Polar code 6 and Ice class 1A, Ocean Victory is the ideal vessel for small-ship cruising due to her sturdy construction and X-Bow®-Infinity class, which provides high stability in rough weather and allows for the smoothest movements on high waves, and a Solas 2012 classification which facilitates a safe return to port. The vessel is part of a brand new generation of low-energy vessels, with 4 diesel engines and 2 electro engines, all controlled electronically to optimize speed and fuel consumption.

Sustainability

All CO2 emissions of your trip (e.g. local transport, hotel) will be 100% compensated for you by a Gold Standard climate protection project.
In an effort to keep our oceans clean and as unpolluted as possible, and in collaboration with the hotel management onboard, Albatros Expeditions is glad to present the following actions. We want our guests to gain awareness of the positive impact we are making together onboard Ocean Atlantic. SAVE THE WAVES PROGRAM In order to reduce chemicals released into the ocean and lower the energy used in washing items onboard, the washing of towels and bed linens is being reduced, by providing each cabin proper signage to reduce the amount being washed each time. All laundry chemicals used are biodegradable. RECYCLING PROGRAM The 3 keywords to keep in mind in every aspect are: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle. All possible items are put to multiple use. For example, plastic bags from parka jackets are used afterwards as garbage bin liners. All single use plastic items are being eliminated, such as disposable cups, stirrers and straws. Paper cups can be used when requested, 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 and proper signage has been located explaining this. Wooden items have replaced the plastic ones, and instead of individual packages for condiments, yogurt, jam or butter, we provide small bowls and a butter pot for each table. All garbage created in work areas is separated, and trash bins in the cabins can be requested to separate paper products. We are implementing recycling stations in key public areas for the use of our guests. SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD 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. TOILET AMENITIES Single use and plastic items have been replaced by wall-mounted dispensers to eliminate waste, and only biodegradable products are used, with proper labeling to promote the awareness of green initiatives among our guests. CLEANING AND LAUNDRY CHEMICALS Phosphate free, non or minimally toxic, biodegradable, not bio accumulative and eco-friendly cleaning products only. Preventive measures to avoid the spread of plastic microfibers in the oceans are being researched and are in the process of being implemented.
