Built in Denmark in 1992 to sail the icy fjords of Greenland, the Ocean Nova is an expeditionary vessel built for comfort and adventure. Over the past 25 years, she has benefited from a host of upgrades, including 2,000-horsepower engines and a strengthened hull specially outfitted for pack-ice travel in Antarctica.

The Ocean Nova offers a perfect platform for whale watching, penguin spotting, and other polar activities. With her comfortable cabins and plentiful deck space, passengers can enjoy the stunning beauty of one of the planet’s remotest landscapes. And when the time comes to go ashore, a fleet of seven Zodiac boats brings them up close to the exotic wildlife of this frozen frontier.

Cabins

The Ocean Nova features single, double, and triple cabins, all with outside-facing portholes and picture windows. A variety of double- and bunk-bed configurations are available, and all rooms feature private toilets and showers, individually controlled heating, writing desks, and wardrobes for personal storage.

Common Areas

When you travel on the Ocean Nova, you’ll have access to a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room, where you’ll hear talks by the crew’s resident naturalists. You’ll also mingle with other explorers in the spacious dining room and bar, and enjoy researching Antarctic wildlife in the on-board library. There’s also a small gym for exercising, and a full-time medic in the infirmary.
