Ship Summary

Staff and Crew

Ice Class

Cruising Speed
12 knots, in open water

Ocean Adventurer has long been a fleet favorite among guests and crew who’ve appreciated the charm and intimacy of this 128-passenger vessel, its ample outdoor deck space, numerous cozy spots to socialize onboard—and the outdoor jacuzzi. A few years ago, Ocean Adventurer underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation involving a talented team of marine architects, engineers, interior designers and polar expedition specialists. Quark Expeditions is proud of the enhancements to the much-loved polar vessel—which subsequently won the Travel Weekly Magellan Award for Overall Small Cruise Ship (500 passengers or under).

The refurbishments now enjoyed by guests:

  • A refreshed, contemporary new look and feel throughout the ship
  • The addition of six new twin cabins and three new suites
  • All existing cabins furnished with new soft furnishings and brand new bathrooms
  • Remodelling of common areas such as the Lounge and Dining Room 
  • Major technical enhancements, such as two new Rolls Royce engines, which increase fuel efficiency and minimize carbon footprint.
