Ocean Victory

Stylish expedition ship with excellent stability

Ocean Victory is a polar expedition ship designed for voyages to the Arctic and Antarctic regions. The special X-bow design allows for smooth sailing even in rough seas and areas with sea ice. On board, you will find all the comfort one might wish for during a voyage to the polar regions.

Ocean Victory has many features that will add a little extra to your expedition experience. Besides multiple dining areas, observation decks, lounges, and a lecture room for educational programmes, you will also find a panoramic sauna and two jacuzzies. A special feature are the hydraulic platforms on deck 5. These can be opened when the ship is at anchor, allowing for a near water-level experience, bringing you as close to nature as possible while onboard the ship.

An important element of comfort, is the stability of the Ocean Victory. Expedition ships like the Ocean Victory are purpose-built for polar exploration, featuring strengthened hulls to navigate through ice-infested waters. The ship has a special X-bow design. Combined with advanced navigation and safety equipment, Ocean Victory provides a comfortable and safe platform for passengers during their polar expeditions.

Ocean Victory is a sister ship of Ocean Albatros. Waterproof Expeditions’ Anu (Sales & Reservations) has travelled on board Ocean Albatros on several occasions. She knows the ship inside and out, and is happy to share her experiences with you.
