Cruise Ships in Antarctica : Ocean Endeavour

The Ocean Endeavour carries 199 passengers amply, and the ship’s size allows for a wide choice in cabins, from singles to the large Owner’s Suite. Aside from being an excellent expedition vessel, the ship gears toward healthy living, with yoga and fitness a big part of the offer. At 15 knots, she’s one of the fastest ships in the fleet.

One of the larger ships in the fleet, the Ocean Endeavour carries 199 passengers in a comfortable environment. With an ice-strengthened hull and 20 Zodiacs for activities and landings, you can disembark the ship as often as you would on a smaller vessel. The ship’s size allows for a wide range of cabins, and a large amount of deck space and communal areas.

The Ocean Endeavour focuses on wellness in its gym, saunas, saltwater pool, hot tub and cafe with juice bar. Yoga and stretching classes are included, as well as a more typical Polar photography schedule and resident scientist.

Please note: this ship is operated by different companies in different regions, meaning some details might change.

Cabins

The Ocean Endeavour offers a choice of 13 types of cabin, all of which were refurbished in 2017. They range from small singles (the only windowless option) to the Owner's Suite, and have a fresh, comfortable feel. Our personal recommendation would be the top-deck double with its twin-aspect windows.
