  • All-suite ship with the smallest cabins measuring a cavernous 215 square feet (20 sq. m) in comparison to most other Antarctic cabins
  • Voyage price includes a night's stay pre-embarkation in a 5* Ushuaia hotel, an Expedition Jacket to keep and the loan of rubber boots
  • Wide choice of cabin categories including 15 suites with exterior balconies
  • Interior elevator to all cabin decks
  • Good value for the comfort level and cabin space

Important: All departures are multi-lingual, typically conducted in both German and English, while some may also have Russian and Chinese spoken.

What Our Customers Think

The Sea Spirit is a beautiful ship and feels very luxurious. The ship and hotel staff were attentive and friendly and as for the food, well it was simply divine! The expedition crew were super friendly, incredibly talented, knowledgeable and inspiring. Our fellow passengers were diverse and we’ve made lots of new friends who we will forever share a special bond with.

Phil & Mickey Australia December 2015

Highlights were aplenty: spending time in Ushuaia the southern most city in the world; living a comfortable life in the ship with good passengers for company; and the best possible expedition team; witnessing orcas and dolphins straight from the cabin window; crossing the Polar Circle, polar plunging; encounters with humpback whales swimming close to the Zodiac; sitting ashore and absorbing the calm and vastness of the peninsula on a bright sunny day.

Sea Spirit - what a plucky little ship! She carried us in comfortable luxury whilst still being small enough to provide an intimate experience. Both the crew and expedition teams worked tirelessly to ensure we had the time of our lives.

I spent a wonderful two weeks onboard Sea Spirit. Having sailed on other vessels in the Polar Regions I was really wowed by her large cabins in particular, and fantastic food. A young, enthusiastic expedition team rounded off a terrific voyage.
