Although not a luxury vessel, the Ocean Adventurer does pack a fair punch in terms of facilities and decor. Because the ship was purpose built for adventure cruising, there are nice little touches everywhere that make this a fabulous expedition ship.

An example is the large library, dinning room and lounge that are all completely window lined so you don’t miss a single view! The multi-purpose lounge also doubles a nice lecture room and the dining room has unreserved seating.

There is good outside deck space on decks 4 and 5 and several bars and gift shops can be found on the lower levels. There is a fitness room aboard the vessel and a massage therapist for those tired backs and shoulders! There is also a 24 hour drink station and medical clinic on-board.
