Adventure, fine dining, and the first carbon-neutral ship in the polar industry are just a few of the characteristics that define the Ocean Diamond. With occupancy for up to 189 passengers, this ship's modern design boasts not only comfort and style but also a cutting edge fuel efficiency that actually completely offsets its carbon emissions. The numerous social spaces and restaurants make this an excellent option for exploring Antarctica. 

Polar Library
The Ocean Diamond carries the world’s largest library of polar book and DVD’s afloat anywhere! It includes books in multiple languages covering a number of subjects including wildlife, history, marine biology, ecology, geology etc. The collection includes a large number of field guides, picture books, and reference books. The DVD collection includes documentaries, polar-themed films, and popular titles.

Massage and Wellness Program
A wellness instructor offers yoga class daily on the deck of the ship while in Antarctica. A masseuse is available to offer massage therapy. The wellness program also include aromatherapy treatments and protein shakes.

Expert in Residence Program
All voyages feature an “Expert on Board”, a practicing scientist, historian, or researcher from prominent institutions and polar research programs who conducts fieldwork during the voyage. Experts will share their knowledge and expertise with guests, and will offer opportunities to involve travelers in their work. They will also be available at meal times and in the evening to socialize with guests.

Remote Headsets
Headsets are available to clients who can borrow them from the activity desk. These are used by staff to broadcast live commentary at certain times during the day, for example while sailing between landing sites. Travelers can use the headsets to follow the commentary, free to move around the ship and decks.

Cabin Descriptions
There are seven categories of cabins available to meet any group size or comfort level you are looking for, from the luxurious balcony suites to the more economical triples. Cabins face outward, and nearly all of them have completely unobstructed views of the ice-filled waters of the Antarctic. All cabins provide the following amenities:

• Bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin
• Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel
• 220V/50Hz electric current

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
