Why We Like Her


    All-inclusive service - beginning with the 2018-19 season all gratuities are included, and House wine and non-premium beers are included at dinner.


    Ability in ice – her high ice-class (1A) means she can manage well in icy conditions and get to landing sites with relative ease.


    Spacious and elegant – both inside and out, the Ocean Adventurer impresses. Inside she has an old world feel with varnished wood and polished brass, while outside she has spacious outer decks for enjoying the breathtaking scenery.
