Expert guides answer all questions

Departing from Ushuaia in Argentina, you'll cross the mighty Drake Passage on our way to the South Shetland Islands, where we plan to make our first Zodiac landing and begin your exploration. The expert guides will make landings at penguin rookeries, research stations and fascinating sights that allow you to enjoy impressive views. Sailing eastward, you will explore the Antarctic Sound with its mighty icebergs and journey to the Weddell Sea in search for wildlife. On the way back, you'll follow in Ernest Shackleton footsteps as you navigate close to Elephant Island. On no other journey can you experience so much pristine nature and varied wildlife in so few days!

Your Cruise Ship

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.
