The largest in our fleet, the Ocean Endeavour offers an unmatched sense of space.  She has plenty of outdoor space on the expansive decks to watch the magnificent scenery go by.  Spacious lounge and bar areas for relaxing with a drink or chatting to fellow travellers.  This ship allows you to be part of it all, or to enjoy Antarctica in quiet solitude.  There are a variety of cabins to choose from offering something for those on a budget, a great value option for solo travellers, and for those who like the finer things; there is something for everyone.

Endeavour is also one of the few polar expedition ships in Antarctica to include wellness activities onboard. Facilities include a spa serviced by organic spa provider VOYA, His and Hers saunas, a salt water pool, a gym, and a juice and smoothie bar. Complimentary activities include yoga and stretching classes, an exclusive Polar Photography program, the Scientists in Residence program, and more adventure activities than any other Quark vessel.
