Ocean Nova is a sturdy and nimble expedition vessel. This ship was built in Denmark in 1992 to sail the ice-choked waters of Greenland. It has a strengthened hull that is ideally suited for expedition travel in Antarctica. The ship was fully refurbished in 2006 and since then has benefitted from annual upgrades and improvements.

For air-cruise expeditions, this ship has capacity for 67 passengers accommodated in comfortable outside cabins. The ship offers three different categories of accommodation: dedicated Single Cabins, Twin Cabins, and Triple Cabins. All cabins aboard feature a picture window, a writing desk with chair, a wardrobe, individually controlled heating system, and a private bathroom with shower. All cabins offer you a peaceful spot to rest for the next day’s adventure.

In addition to a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room, Ocean Nova also has a spacious dining room, a bar, a library, a small gym, and an infirmary. The ship has a fleet of 7 Zodiac boats that are well suited for disembarking and wildlife watching.
