Max Passengers: 210
Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship
Operated by: Iceland Pro Cruises

The superyacht Ocean Diamond is excellent for Arctic expeditions, thanks to two stabilizers that greatly minimize roll and an ice-resistant hull (ice class 1D). As a result of the ship's small size, she can carry guests to destinations not usually included in standard cruise itineraries.

There are 210 guests allowed on board the Ocean Diamond, which has state-of-the-art amenities and top-notch personnel, including bilingual expedition directors and guides. Elegantly furnished, all 109 of the ship's cabins and suites come equipped with modern conveniences and access to the outside. Using the ship's zodiacs to explore the coast is an option. In the evenings, travelers can relax in the Polar Library, which has a wide selection of literature and DVDs, or take in the stunning Arctic scenery from the panoramic salon.

Plug/ Voltage type Onboard: 2 pin Continental Flag
