With the M/V Sea Spirit, you will be sailing in classic style with all the amenities of a comfortable hotel.

The ice-strengthened expedition ship was updated in late 2010, followed by a complete refurbishment of the suites in 2017. Providing suites for 114 passengers, they all have private facilities and exterior views with private balconies to enjoy the fantastic landscapes of the Arctic.  Public areas include reception, restaurant, bar, outdoor bistro, club lounge, library, presentation lounge, infirmary, gym and bridge.  

The restaurant on board the Sea Spirit offers open-seating dining, which means there are no assigned tables. A cpmprehensive buffet is served for breakfast and lunch with dinner served a-la-carte with an international  menu created by their talented chefs.

On board, the captain and his crew create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all. An interesting vessel for a memorable wilderness experience where guests can become real polar adventurers. 



Polar Routes Review - Martin's Visit

"The Sea Spirit has been a staple of the expedition cruise world for many years now and has had several custodians over the years including Quark, Noble Caledonia and now, Poseidon Expeditions. Poseidon are a fantastic operator dedicated to small ship exploration of the polar waters with a focus on seeing as much of the destination as possible. From the minute you step on-board the classic styling is very apparent and you will find wood panels, brass handrails and touches of marble used throughout the ship. At first you may find yourself wondering if it’s a little dated, but very quickly the ship starts to elicit feelings of nostalgia for the great explorers and ships from times gone by and the ambiance feels just perfect for the voyage ahead. However, unlike the ships from history, thankfully there is no shortage of comfort and facilities on-board this one! There is a fantastic presentation room, which really feels like the heart of the ship, and is where the expedition staff conduct lectures and present the plans for exploring each day. There are wonderful amounts of deck space for observing the passing landscapes including a promenade deck that wraps all the way around the ship. There is a lovely restaurant on the lower deck where breakfast and lunch consist of a generous buffet and dinner is served a-la-carte. On the top deck you will also find a great outdoor seating area complete with hot tub – a gin & tonic in here while passing penguins on the shore is something that just has to be done! When it comes to exploring, you will find a fleet of zodiacs, a dedicated loading platform at the rear of the ship, kayaks, camping-on-ice opportunities and a wealth of experience from an international team of dedicated expedition staff. If you are looking for maximum time exploring and a comfortable base from which to do it, then you will feel right at home on the Sea Spirit."
