Antarctica: Ocean Diamond

Ocean Diamond

This gleaming ship is larger than many expedition cruise vessels, and her facilities and ambience are more like those of a floating hotel: there is even a spa offering massage therapies and yoga classes.
However this does not detract from the emphasis on wildlife, with each voyage accompanied by a well-informed and engaging expert: practicing scientists or researchers who will be happy to share their expertise with guests. The cabins are very comfortable with more furniture and storage space than is usual on an expedition ship of this type.

• Capacity of 189
• Cabin types range from single to suite with outside portholes or windows
• A lift connects the four decks
• Spacious, tiered lecture theatre
• Well-stocked library with DVDs you can play in your cabin
• Glass-enclosed observation lounge
• Outside deck for barbecues and socialising
• All guests receive an expedition parka
• Optional camping, kayaking, skiing and mountaineering on selected departures.
