Cruise on board Quark Expeditions's Ocean Nova
With her clean crisp Scandinavian styling, the Ocean Nova provides a sleek home away from home in the wilds of the Arctic region. Built in 1992 but refurbished in 2006, she boasts all the credentials of a polar expedition vessel having commenced her maritime life in Greenland and featuring an ice-strengthened hull. Now she carries 78 guests on intimate tours of the Arctic, Scotland and Spitsbergen, providing an elegant refuge that allows passengers to reach remote and unique destinations that the larger ships cannot.
The Ocean Nova maintains her expedition heritage by treating passengers to an immersive cultural experience. Activities are focused on exploration and include kayaking and hiking. Each voyage has resident naturalists and ornithologists aboard to educate passengers on the significance of the destinations visited. Meanwhile a fleet of zodiacs enables guests to get up close and personal with all the wonders that the Arctic has to offer.
Aboard, a refuge beckons where passengers can relax, indulge and retreat to the comfort of a first-class cruise ship. Public amenities include a lounge, bar, library, and gym. The Ocean Nova also features an open bridge policy, allowing guests to observe the intricacies of polar navigation.
