SHIPBOARD INFORMATION
The Ocean Nova was built in 1992 at the Ørskov Shipyard in Frederikshavn, Denmark, to navigate the ice-choked waters off Western Greenland. The ship was upgraded in 2000 and will be significantly refurbished once again in 2006 to include a glass-enclosed forward observation lounge on the top deck - and to offer Quark Expeditions travelers even more of a comfortable retreat after days of exploring ashore. (The ship photos on the left have been digitally modified to include the planned new features.)

Carrying up to 82 passengers and classified to operate in ice-filled waters, the 73-meter vessel is guided by Danish officers with deep experience in polar navigation. With outside cabins only (all with private facilities), a spacious dining room and a comfortable library, the OCEAN NOVA is a perfect expedition ship for discovering Antarctica.
