Mid Range Ship

Ocean Nova was great, I would 10/10 do it again. Hopefully one day I can return as a crew member. It had all the accommodations I could ask for. The food was great and there was always plenty of options. The coffee machine was my favorite amenity. It was also nice that it had a small gym. (Copied from Swoop Antarctica)
