Ship Overview

The ice-strengthened, small, all-suite expedition ship Sea Spirit was built in 1991 in Italy. The vessel was updated in late 2010 & received a $2.5 million refurbishment of all suites in 2017.
Providing suites for 114 passengers (the smallest suite is 215 sq. ft.) the Sea Spirit at the same time features maneuverability and friendly atmosphere of small ships. All suites have private facilities and exterior views. Some of the suites feature private balconies for enjoying fantastic landscapes of the Arctic and Antarctica.
An ice-strengthened hull, a fleet of rubber inflatable boats for landings on wild shores (10 Zodiacs), an experienced crew, and a set of retractable fin stabilizers for smoother sailing make your polar cruise more enjoyable.
All departures include an Expedition Jacket to keep and rubber boots on loan.

The Restaurant on board the Sea Spirit offers open-seating dining, which means there are no assigned tables. Contemporary, international cuisine is created by our talented chefs.

The Outdoor Bistro at the Jacuzzi area is an outdoor alternative for lunch. Light meal (hamburgers, soups, pasta, salads, and desserts) is served in the Bistro if weather permits.
