Ship Type: Expedition Cruise Ship
Operated by: Albatros Expeditions

Ocean Victory, the next-generation expedition ship, is one of the most up-to-date small ship boats in the market, making it suitable for small ship cruises. Its inaugural voyage took place in November 2021. 

Onboard, there are 93 staterooms, 90% of which have their private balconies, several restaurants, a fully stocked bar, an open deck dining facility, and an environmentally friendly Green Initiative Program that ensures both absolute comfort and sustainability.

When it comes to small-ship cruising, Ocean Victory is an excellent choice thanks to its X-Bow®-Infinity class and Polar code 6, which ensures maximum stability in rough weather and allows for the smoothest movements on high waves, as well as a Solas 2012 classification that makes it easier to return to port safely. With four diesel engines and two electric engines, the vessel is part of a new breed of low-energy boats that is electronically controlled to maximize speed and fuel usage.

Plug/ Voltage type Onboard: 220V/Type F

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
