The Sea Spirit has the feel of a luxury hotel to its passengers numbering a maximum of just 114. It was originally built in Italy in 1991 and since then it has had several updates, most recently in 2017 where around $2.5 million was spent on refurbishing all the suites onboard.
Certainly, one of the most luxurious ships in polar waters all the rooms are classed as suites and the ‘smallest’ is a spacious 215 square feet. Every suite has a private bathroom and an exterior view and 15 of the suites in the deluxe, premium or owner’s categories even have private balconies to enjoy the incredible landscapes of the Arctic or Antarctica.
Highly maneuverable and with an ice-strengthened hull the Sea Spirit is fully capable of navigating narrow channels, as might be found in the fjords of Spitsbergen on an Arctic cruise for example. A set of fin stabilizers which are retractable also aid smoother sailing in choppy waters to enhance your enjoyment aboard.
The expert crew on board go out of their way to foster a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and the open bridge policy allows you to interact with the captain and the officers should you wish. An expedition parka is complimentary during any voyage and is as useful as it is a wonderful keepsake. Hardy rubber boots are also included to use during the trip, both will be needed during trips on one of the 10 zodiacs used to further explore the polar environs.
