Ocean Albatros is a revolutionary and stylish cruise ship that will combine the advantages of a small expedition vessel with the stability and comfort of a larger cruise ship. With a maximum capacity of 189 passengers, this compact-design ship will offer an intimate atmosphere with great personal service. At the same time, it will offer the stability and smooth ride of a bigger ship, while also offering all the luxury comforts of today. Ocean Albatros is under construction and will deploy in time for the 2023 Arctic season.

With a total of 95 comfortable and spacious staterooms for our guests, all with an unobstructed panoramic view of the ocean, most with their own balcony, two restaurants, a wellness area including a heated swimming pool, two jacuzzies and a spa, a Nordic Bar and a modern lecture lounge, this ship truly delivers on all the comfort needs of today’s explorers. Ocean Albatros is also a “comfort class” certified vessel, meaning it operates with the lowest noise and vibration levels in the industry.

The ship is clean certified and has tier-3 compliant engines, the least polluting engines in the world, with up to 80% lower emissions than traditional expedition vessels. Onboard we implement a complete “Green Initiative Program” that includes removal of single use plastics, only using bio-degradable and eco-friendly products, offering sustainable seafood and organic fair-trade coffee and teas.

The patented X-bow provides a more comfortable sailing and helps to prevent passengers’ discomforts. Additionally, it helps to maintain higher speed and keep to the planned expedition schedule in rough seas.

The Zero-Speed stabilizers provide more comfort and deliver a proven reduction of the “ship roll”. Combined with the benefits of dynamic positioning and a total five Zodiac loading locations, we can deliver faster Zodiac operations and spend more time exploring the unique wonders of Antarctica.
