The Ocean Diamond is a modern, stable super-yacht, and carrying a maximum of 189 passengers is a great small expedition ship. With two stabilisers and an ice-strengthened hull, this outstanding vessel is ideal for polar expeditions. As one of the fastest ships in Antarctica, it is also one of the most comfortable. There are 101 elegantly designed cabins and suites, all with exterior views, and expansive common spaces, a club lounge, and a spacious restaurant.

The ship offers numerous adventure options, plus on-board features such as interactions with photography instructors. After a full day of exploration, passengers can relax, browse books or DVDs in the well-stocked polar library, or enjoy stunning polar scenery from the sun-lit, panoramic observation lounge. Take in 360° views of the polar landscapes from the Sun Deck aboard the ship.

There is one dining room located on the Lower Deck. If there is one constant at sea, it is that you’ll enjoy delicious meals on a daily basis. While meal times may change due to landings and wildlife encounters, you’ll always be served three meals a day.2
