Alex says

This ship has so many strong attributes, but for me it’s Seaventure's wide expanse of windows in every social area. The wrap-around windows in the Panorama Lounge make for a perfect spot to defrost after a busy day exploring, without missing any of the jaw-dropping landscapes!

Marian Fowler - UK

Exactly the ship I was searching for....traditional, updated in 2021, she does show her age but most all issues minor or more seem to me to have been well dealt with. All operational needs aboard her were well thought out and in place. The ship has a built in "patina" of sorts, making her far different from the newer contemporaries reflecting draw for the younger explorers. We loved the ambiance, spirit and feel of this small 111 meter long ship which truly reflects well a cruise to this storied land. Read the full review

I love the lady!!! She has a lot of charm and is just the right size. Our cabin was super comfy and bigger than I expected. Everything is super clean and the hotel staff were doing an excellent job. Although we had BIG waves on the Drake she did not feel super shaky, I think thanks due to the stabilizers and a great captain and crew. She was quiet and the inside climate temperature felt always comfy and perfect. There are enough places to 'hang-out' and she never felt crowded. Read the full review

Onboard Communication & Facilities

There is Wi-Fi access in all cabins and public areas, which you can use with your own mobile device. 500mb of Wi-Fi is included in your cabin cost. Beyond that, internet usage is subject to a fee and will be charged via your on-board account. 

Onboard communication services depends on satellites and cannot always be guaranteed due to the weather and the ship’s position, in particular in extremely southerly cruising areas. All services may be sporadically available on a daily basis due to satellite positioning. As with all polar ships, the internet available is not suited for heavy or reliable usage, but is useful for occasionally checking in with family and friends when there is signal.
