Small and sleek expeditionary vessel with an airy Scandinavian feel and large windows throughout, including in the glass-enclosed observation lounge.

Ocean Nova is a sleek, purpose-built expeditionary cruise vessel which has an airy Scandanavian feel, with blond wood and large windows throughout. Her relatively small size enables passengers to mix easily in a friendly environment. Her shallow draught allows the ship to anchor close to landing sites and it’s relatively a easy embarkation on to Zodiac landing craft from the waterline gangway. An excellent viewing platform above the bridge is open to guests.

With a capacity for 72 guests she offers exterior cabins with private bathroom, and some single cabins are available for solo travellers. Meals are informal with a daily changing menu.

Optional kayaking (pre-book) and snowshoeing are available on selected departures.
