On board Ocean Victory, you will find kitchen professionals and chefs who take great pride in bringing gastronomic experiences to keep your tastebuds satisfied.
When the first explorers began their Antarctic undertakings, they had little choice and even less variety in their nourishment options.
Dining at the bottom of the world was not a delicacy, but a duty necessary for survival. Luckily for us, today is another story.
Meals are served in the bright and spacious Beagle Restaurant, where spectacular views provide the perfect atmosphere for the daily culinary selection.
After an unforgettable expedition during the day, guests can relax in the heated swimming pool and two jacuzzis. Or they can an enjoy being pampered in the Polar Spa with some unique Albatros-only treatments, like a Midnight Sun or a Fire and Ice Massage.
For the active explorer, there's a fully equipped gym with panoramic views, while shoppers can enjoy the Albatros boutique. A selection of lectures, screenings and activities will keep your brain interested and entertained.
Of course, the Ocean Victory offers several bars with a large selection of drinks, including wine tasting menus developed in partnership with French wine producer and expert Gerard Bertrand, who is a leader in producing biodynamic farmed wines.
