Why we like the Ocean Adventurer cruise ship

  • Extensive recent refurbishment has considerably benefited this already popular ship
  • One of the more stable Arctic vessels with her rounded stern and active stabilizing system
  • The promenade deck areas are a great place to hang out and watch icebergs float past
  • An enthusiastic and dedicated team of expeditionary staff who really go the extra step
  • The lounge and dining room's panoramic windows mean you never miss out on the passing scenery
  • A cruising speed of 12.5 knots puts her in the faster category of ships

Onboard Communications

If whilst in the Arctic you wish to stay in touch, there are a number of options to choose from:

  • Internet & wifi: available as a pre-paid PIN card that grants access to wifi spots found in the public spaces, but the signal should reach cabins too. Generally, 100mb cards cost about $100. 
  • Satellite phone card: available as a pre-paid PIN card. Expect costs of about $0.25/minute when calling to the USA.
  • Ship-based email: available for a nominal fee of about $30 (text-based email)
  • Mail: it is possible to send mail from the ship

Due to the remoteness of the location, the options available are only suitable for light data traffic, meaning that internet access or the uploading of images is not possible. Email access, however, is still available.
