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 top speed of 17.5 knots makes her one of the fastest ships in the Arctic, reducing time at sea
