Media Release: Ocean Atlantic’s new Look Revealed in time for Antarctic Cruising Season

Sydney, 10 July 2017 – Australians have more reasons than ever to get their clients excited about the upcoming Antarctic cruising season with one of Antarctica’s most iconic expedition cruise ships, the Ocean Atlantic, revealing a brand new look after recently undergoing a full-scale refurbishment.

On top of featuring a range of brand new cabins, the overhaul included the transformation of all cabins, designed to provide guests with comfortable and stylish surroundings when cruising Antarctic waters.

Also renovated were the ship’s common areas such as the restaurant, Veranda bar, and the lecture hall.

A relatively small ship with a capacity of 195 passengers, the Ocean Atlantic allows travellers to sail close to the shore and access narrow inlets enabling travellers to see the most untouched corners of the White Continent. As an ice-class vessel, the ship is one of the strongest ships operating in Antarctica.

“We’re so pleased to see one of our favourite Antarctica vessels bring guest experience to new heights” said Greg Carter, co-founder of Polar Specialist Chimu Adventures.

“Cruising the glacier landscapes of this ultimate bucket list destination is an already largely inspiring experience in itself but these new improvements will really add that additional amount extra spark.”

Super Early Bird Discounts of up to 35% can currently be enjoyed on Chimu’s 10-day Discover Antarctica (now from AU$ 8,075* twin) on board the Ocean Atlantic. An exclusive Chimu charter, this voyage takes in the best of wildlife and scenery of the Antarctic Peninsula whilst being joined by special guest Campbell Remess, the 13-year old charitable teddybearmaker from Tasmania who has made a name for himself for his acts of kindness, making teddy bears every day and gifting them to sick and needy children across the globe.
