This Polar Adventure Ship delivers clean, crisp Scandinavian styling and a reputation as an excellent ship in the Antarctic. Built to sail the icy waters of Greenland, Ocean Nova's ice-strengthened hull has enabled the ship to park in the notorious ice of the Weddell Sea!
Karen from Pennsylvania had this to say about her experience aboard Ocean Nova, "I loved the Ocean Nova. It is a beauty of a little ship!" I picked the Antarctic Explorer itinerary because of the Ocean Nova. I wanted a small ship that had a shallow draft allowing for navigating closer to shore and one that could traverse narrow channels, capabilities perfect for polar cruising. It certainly did its job and that was exciting. The ship performed beautifully crossing Drakes Passage, particularly on our very rough return to Ushuaia." March 2011
