June 2017 OCEAN ATLANTIC  Converted to Expedition Vessel The Ocean Atlantic, built in Poland in 1986 as the Konstantin Chernenko, and renamed Russ in 1988, has been reactivated after a lay up of about a year and a half at Helsingborg. She had previously operated as an accommodation ship in the Shetlands and the North Sea. Ocean Atlantic underwent conversion into an expedition ship at Gdansk in May 2017, during which the owners added twenty new Zodiacs, Zodiac cranes and landing platforms. As well, they added new Observation and Lecture Lounges, and implemented a complete interior upgrade of the passenger cabins. As an expedition ship, she is now operating on charter to Denmark’s Albatros Travel. She will then go to Quark Expeditions for the winter Antarctic season. Originally designed for 410 passengers, the Ocean Atlantic is now limited to 230 guests.
