Last month, Quark Expeditions’ polar expedition ship ‘Sea Adventurer’ underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation and was renamed ‘Ocean Adventurer’.
The upgraded ‘Ocean Adventurer’ can now carry 132 guests. Originally built in Yugoslavia in 1976, this ice-strengthened ship also underwent refurbishments in 1999 and 2002.
The latest refurbishment includes:
A refreshed, contemporary new look and feel throughout the ship.
The addition of six new twin cabins and three new suites.
All existing cabins are furnished with new soft furnishings and new bathrooms.
Main common areas, such as the Lounge and dining room were remodelled, as was the bar.
Major technical enhancements include two new Rolls Royce engines, which will significantly increase fuel efficiency and minimise carbon footprint.
She has been chartered to Chimu Expeditions who are offering cruises to the Antarctic.
“We’re so pleased to see one of our favourite Antarctica vessels bring guest experience to new heights” said Greg Carter, co-founder of Polar Specialist Chimu Adventures.”Cruising the glacier landscapes of this ultimate bucket list destination is an already largely inspiring experience in itself but these new improvements will really add that additional amount extra spark.”
