The Ocean Nova, formerly the Sarpik Ittuk, was built in 1992 in Denmark to navigate the ice-choked waters off Western Greenland. The ship was significantly refurbished in 2006 to include a glass-enclosed forward observation lounge on the top deck and to offer travelers even more of a comfortable retreat after days of exploring ashore. Expert polar guides compliment your cruise to Antarctica with daily shore landings and lectures on Antarctic wildlife.
Carrying only 68 passengers and classified to operate in ice-filled waters guided by Danish officers with deep experience in polar navigation. With outside cabins only (all with private facilities), a spacious dining room and a comfortable library, the Ocean Nova is a perfect expedition ship for your cruise to Antarctica.
