Why we like the Spirit of Enderby cruise ship

  • One of the last few small expeditionary ships still operating in The Arctic
  • A maximum of only 50 passengers makes the whole experience very special and allows for greater spontaneity
  • Refurbished in 2012, the accommodation is homely, the luxury being the destination itself
  • Built as a Russian ‘research vessel’ she’s proven time and again how capable she is in Polar waters
  • Staffed by a highly experienced Russian crew who enjoy sharing their knowledge and practising their English, alongside a very capable international expeditionary staff

In spite of the focus on the exploration ashore to be had, the ship's comfortable common spaces provide ample on-board entertainment - from relaxed evenings with fellow travellers in the bar, to uncovering more about the region in the library and dedicated lecture room.
