Why we like the Ocean Victory

  • Two jacuzzis allow you to warm up in style after a chilly day out exploring on foot and by Zodiac
  • Advanced "clean ship" engines with significantly lower emissions than traditional expedition vessels
  • The top ice class 1A/PC6 rating allows for safe navigation of challenging polar waters
  • A purpose-built expedition ship with X-Bow® Infinity technology and zero speed stabilisers, improving your comfort in rough waters
  • For active travellers, optional activities include kayaking, snowshoeing and camping

I sailed aboard Ocean Victory in February 2022 and loved waking up to panoramic views of sculptural icebergs and jagged glaciated mountains through the floor-to-ceiling balcony doors. A perfect way to start the day!

Onboard Communications & Facilities

Keep in mind, we will be cruising in a very remote region of the world. Where accessible, internet access is available for an extra charge. 

The official language aboard is English; however, the expedition team and crew are often a wonderful mix of nationalities. If you form part of a large group and require communication in your own language, please let us know and we may be able to make special arrangements to accommodate your needs.

What our customers think of Ocean Victory

Great expedition team with tons of experience and knowledge of Antarctica. Jamie, the expedition leader just made everything happen. The team really delivered. Who could ever forget a lecture entitled "Krill With Phil"? Gerard's vast knowledge and experience was awesome. Read the full review

From the captain down, the people who run the ship and provide the hotel services are wonderful and caring. Our favorite server was Josephine. She served our meals with kindness, care, and grace that went far beyond service that is expected from a first class ship Read the full review

Scott Hunter - USA

An excellent new ship with a Captain willing to go to sites the expedition team had only hoped but not expected to get to. A brilliant team of expedition staff doing everything from the antigen-tests to zodiac driving and encouraging this old lady to get up the hill to see albatross chicks! Read the full review
