A small ship has undeniable advantages. She can navigate narrow channels and bays closed for the bigger ships. In Antarctica with travelers limit ashore up to 100 all our passengers can be accommodated simultaneously. So a once-in-a lifetime opportunity doesn’t need to be missed.
While for the North Pole cruises we use the only suitable for this destination ship — the 50 Let Pobedy — for Antarctica we have carefully chosen the «golden mean». Our all-suit small expedition ship Sea Spirit provides the level of comfort that only the most demanding travelers expect to experience in wild polar regions. However there is no too much luxury onboard that can break a friendly atmosphere and team spirit of a real expedition. We don’t have dress code and odd events that can disturb our main goal — to explore the Arctic and Antarctica each possible moment.
