Iceland is one of the most popular destinations in the world. After the success of our previous Icelandic cruises, we are extremely happy to offer this special voyage that features a complete circumnavigation of the island with some of the world’s most beautiful scenic cruising. This sailing also highlights many of the important and seldom visited ports. The ms Ocean Diamond is small enough to dock in remote ports while large enough to ensure all of our creature comforts are met, the best of both worlds. You must act now! Our very special rates are only available until December 20, 2018. After that date, the cruise prices will increase by up to $2,380 per person. Call us today to book your places on this exceptional value cruise.

ms Ocean Diamond

Thanks to an ice-strengthened hull (ice class 1D) and stabilizers that significantly reduce roll, the super yacht ms Ocean Diamond is the ideal ship for expeditions in the Arctic region. Due to the ship’s compact size, it can take passengers to places off the traditional cruise routes to experience all the highlights of Iceland. Carrying a maximum of 199 passengers, the Ocean Diamond features a range of modern onboard amenities and is staffed with outstanding officers and crew, as well as experienced expedition leaders and guides. All 107 cabins and suites are well appointed, have en suite
facilities with shower and provide views of the sea (port holes or windows). They are very comfortable in size (182 - 204 square feet). The ship’s Zodiacs are used for excursions and landings, providing exceptional close up views, exploring the bays and waterways around Iceland. After a busy day of exploration, we can enjoy the wellstocked library for books or DVDs or relax in the Observation Lounge for a drink while enjoying the spectacular Arctic scenery.
