Albatros Expeditions reveals second newbuild for Arctic and Antarctica

In May 2019 Albatros Expeditions confirmed plans to add a second INFINITY class expedition cruise vessel to its fleet in 2022.

The ship, named Ocean Albatros, will operate in both Antarctica and the Arctic, and on cruises between these core expedition areas.

Ocean Albatros will join the new Ocean Victory, that will be operated by Albatros Expeditions in Antarctica from December 2020 and is chartered to Victory Cruise Lines for operations in Alaska for the summer seasons.

Ocean Albatros and Ocean Victory are 104m long, and 18m wide, featuring 93 large cabins, of which 68 benefit from private observation decks and nine with French balconies.

The vessel is part of a brand-new generation of low-energy vessels and are of the highest Ice Class 1A, Polar Code 6.

They are being built with Safe Return to Port, Dynamic Positioning and Zero Speed Stabilisers. The vessels also feature the X-Bow® by Ulstein Design & Solutions.

They are small enough to provide a sense of exclusivity and yet large enough to offer all the facilities and levels of services that you would expect from larger vessels.
