Onboard inclusions

Our onboard creature comforts will warm you up after your Antarctic outings. Expect 3-course meals, 24/7 tea and coffee and fascinating evening seminars.  

Safety

We’re committed to providing the highest safety standards, which is why the Ocean Endeavour, and all our operations teams undergo regular safety audits.

Each ship boasts onboard chefs to prepare a range of hearty, quality meals, and onboard experts to ensure you spend more time seeing the sights and less time thumbing through a guidebook.

Leave only footprints

‘Sustainable cruising’ might seem like a contradiction in terms, given the history of the big mega liners. But it’s a side of the industry we want to change. Voyages are carbon offset and we refrain from single-use plastics on board. We recycle, cook with sustainable seafood, and use biodegradable cleaning products in bathrooms. It’s all part of our commitment to being a carbon neutral company and, since 2018, a certified B Corp (Benefits Corporation).

We also give back to the region by supporting such organisations as the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. Established in 1997, the foundation conserves the fragile and historic buildings at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay, East Antarctica, which were built and occupied by the legendary geologist and explorer Sir Douglas Mawson.
