Accommodation rating: Superior

Experience Antarctica in comfort aboard the Ocean Diamond, a modern and stable super-yacht with an ice-strengthened hull. Her high speed enables a saving of up to 12 hours on the Drake Passage crossing. All emissions are off-set, making her voyages carbon neutral, a first for polar travel. Bright and smart cabins all have exterior views, while many of the suites feature private balconies. The elevated glass observation lounge is a superb vantage point. On-board amenities include a massage and wellness programme, and a resident photography instructor.

Daily outdoor activities combine excursions on the fleets of Zodiacs, shore landings and hikes, while optional activities such as camping (Antarctica only), kayaking and snowshoeing are available on selected departures. Additional charges apply for camping and kayaking and pre-booking is essential.
