Arctic summer season for Ocean Albatros
Albatros Expeditions took delivery of its newest vessel, Ocean Albatros, in Tromsø, Norway earlier this month.

The ship is being deployed on an 2023 Arctic season, offering voyages to Svalbard, Iceland, and Greenland.

Søren Rasmussen, Founder and Chairman of Albatros Expeditions was one of the first to embark Ocean Albatros for a pre-cruise from Tromsø to Longyearbyen, where it welcomed its first guests last week. 

Søren commented: 'The vessel is absolutely perfect for these conditions - very stable and performs great.'

Two sisters

The arrival of Ocean Albatros, alongside its sister ship, Ocean Victory, marks a new era of sustainability and environmental conservation for Albatros Expeditions. Both vessels are specially designed to reduce their carbon footprint and minimise their environmental impact.

In addition to its environmental efficiencies, Ocean Albatros also features an experienced and passionate team of expedition leaders, naturalists, photographers and wildlife experts on board.  They are dedicated to creating an immersive and educational experience for guests, showcasing the magic of the Arctic and the importance of sustainable tourism, he commented.

Onboard

Besides being a certified ice-class vessel, Ocean Albatros features a panorama sauna, open-air jacuzzis, 360 degree outside decks and hydraulic observation platforms.

The 94 sea-facing staterooms are elegantly furnished in Scandinavian style.

'We are thrilled to welcome the Ocean Albatros and embark on new voyages this Arctic season,' said Greg Carter, CCO of Albatros Expeditions.
