Ocean Nova: Ship Details and Overview


Photo of Ocean Nova

The Ocean Nova was built in 1992, Denmark to navigate the ice-choked seas around Greenland.

Now used for Antarctic cruises, her ice-strengthened hull and small size makes her the perfect ship for people looking to explore the less-seen shores and bays along the Antarctic Peninsula.

The Ocean nova had an upgrade in 2000 and then a complete refurbishment in 2006. The cabins aboard the vessel are now very comfortable and the public facilities include a spacious dining room, bar, polar library, gym, panoramic lounge and infirmary.

The ship is classically used in conjunction with the ‘Antarctica Express Cruise‘ in which people fly from Punta Arenas to King George Island before embarking the Ocean Nova. This is a great option for people who are short on time or struggle withsea sickness and wish to avoid the Drake Passage.
