Antarctica

This is our ship, the Ocean Nova. It is 73 meters long (239.5 feet), 11 meters wide (36 feet), and while not an icebreaker, it has an ice strengthened hull for breaking through "moderatly" thick ice (up to about 3 feet). It holds 73 passengers, and you can see here the ramp they lower to load/unload the zodiacs. There is a great "Panoramic Lounge" at the top front, and a smaller library, study area, also with panoramic windows aft. All cabins have bathrooms and windows (though the windows cannot be opened, and on our return trip, we could see why).


other sizes: small medium large original
