This ship can carry slightly more passengers than 50 Years Of Victory (189) and is more reminiscent of what you would expect from a modern day cruise liner. Ocean diamond is the largest boat in the fleet and all of the carbon emissions from her voyages are offset by Quark’s wind and hydro energy projects and reforestation programmes around the world. This super-stable yacht is the first and only vessel to offer these carbon neutral voyages to Antarctica and will enable you to see wildlife such as penguins, seals, whales and multiple species of seabird, in style.
Whilst there are plenty of chances for adventure, with trips to South Georgia, The Falklands and the Antarctic Peninsula available, you can recharge your batteries back on-board with the option of massages, aromatherapy treatments and meals prepared by an expert chef.
