The Antarctic Dream which dates back to 1958, previously sailed on expedition cruises to Chile and Antarctica. The ship was retired in 2012 but appears to have been sold to Royalty or Rich investors in Oman or the United Arab Emirates. The ship has remained off the shore of Oman for about 2-3 years and sails in an unusual pattern up and down the Gulf of Oman. The ship carries 80 passengers and has a crew of 47.
It is unclear if the name of the ship has been modified since some sources now have her listed as the Antabctic Dream.
