Why we like the Sea Spirit cruise ship

  • A comfortable 4* vessel with an expeditionary heart delivers the best of both worlds
  • Huge cabins for a small expeditionary vessel - an unusual combination - provide real comfort between off ship landings
  • A maximum of only 114 passengers means no waiting to go ashore
  • An enthusiastic expedition team make for exciting zodiac landings
  • In terms of size of cabin, this ship offers good value for money

I sailed to Svalbard onboard Sea Spirit. A young enthusiastic expedition team made my voyage exciting and interesting, while kayaking in polar bear territory ​was a real highlight. The cabins onboard are so large I almost got lost in mine!

Communal Areas

There is a dedication to providing opportunities to rest, discover, socialise and learn. Embrace the opportunities to wildlife spot, capture stunning photography, and watch the scenery of the Arctic dramatically unfold with every turn of the ship in the lounge, or on the outdoor bistro or bridge. The open bridge policy means that guests can follow the precise movements of the ship.

Lectures, briefings and events are held in the presentation lounge, and the on-board bar welcomes guests to mingle and share stories of their day, over a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Catch up on reading or delve into one of the polar materials in the library. The gym is also open daily and offers a few machines as well as room for stretching and yoga.
