Albatros Expeditions has announced the arrival and takeover of its newest vessel, Ocean Albatros, in Tromsø, Norway.
The state-of-the-art ship arrived just in time for the 2023 Arctic season, where it will depart on voyages to Svalbard, Iceland, and Greenland.
Søren Rasmussen, Founder and Chairman of Albatros Expeditions embarked on Ocean Albatros for its pre-cruise from Tromsø to Longyearbyen, where it welcomed its first guests on 15 June, 2023.
Søren commented: “The vessel was delivered to us on 10 June 2023 and we have been onboard for the past few days.
“It looks like the vessel is absolutely perfect for these conditions – very stable and performs great.
“We are just preparing to welcome our first guests onboard and I look forward to hearing what they think of Ocean Albatros, but I have very high expectations”.
The company said in a statement that the arrival of Ocean Albatros, alongside its sister ship, Ocean Victory, marks a “new era of sustainability and environmental conservation.”
Both vessels are specially designed to reduce their carbon footprint and minimise their environmental impact while exploring the Arctic and Antarctica.
Onboard Ocean Albatros is a team of experienced and passionate expedition leaders, naturalists, photographers and wildlife experts.
The ship itself is equipped with the latest technology, safety and navigation equipment, enhancing guest comfort and making it the perfect vessel for polar explorations.
Besides being a certified ice-class vessel, Ocean Albatros allows guests to combine the “modern-day amenities with the spirit of adventure expeditions.”
Features include the panorama sauna, open-air jacuzzis, 360 outside decks and hydraulic observation platforms.
Spacious cabins are elegantly furnished in Scandinavian style, providing guests with a luxurious and comfortable environment in which to relax and rejuvenate after an exciting day of adventure.
Greg Carter, CCO of Albatros Expeditions, said:
“With the new vessel’s eco-efficient technology, the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that our dedicated and passionate team will provide, and the superior comfort that the Ocean Albatros affords our passengers, we are confident that we are offering our guests an adventure of a lifetime, while also ensuring the sustainability of this remarkable region.”
