Ocean Nova


  • Intimate cruising for just 78 passengers
  • Panoramic bar

Clean, crisp Scandinavian styling with a reputation as an excellent ship in the polar regions. The MV Ocean Nova is a modern and comfortable vessel. She was built in Denmark in 1992 to sail the ice-choked waters of Greenland, and her ice-strengthened hull is ideally suited for expedition travel in the polar regions.

The ship has capacity for 78 passengers accommodated in comfortable outside-facing cabins, all with private facilities including dedicated single, twin and triple cabins. In addition to a glass-enclosed observation lounge and presentation room, a spacious dining room, a bar, a library and an infirmary, the ship has Zodiac boats that are well suited for disembarking and wildlife watching.
