Since its first voyage in 1983, Peace Boat has chartered a number of passenger ships to organize its voyages, adapting the onboard spaces to provide a unique and dynamic environment for its participants. Ocean Dream was built in 1981 in Denmark and has excellent facilities, which enable the “floating peace village” experience unique to Peace Boat. Although it may look like a normal cruise from the outside, a Peace Boat voyage is very different from the traditional model and promotes participation over merely vacationing.
