Polar Voyages: Choose Small Ships – Get Big Advantages
To opt for travelling rather than for material values is nowadays tendency in planning the budget. While choosing trips and destinations, your clients are thinking about getting inspiration and emotions. Thus, no wonder polar voyages are becoming more and more popular among discerning travellers.
Why it is important to choose small ship for the Arctic and Antarctica? To get the most out of your once-in-a-lifetime voyage
Balance between luxury and expedition
The Poseidon Expeditions’ Sea Spirit ship follows the summer to the High Arctic and going down to Antarctica during winter months. Like her well-known sister ships Island Sky and Caledonian Sky, Sea Spirit accommodates a small number of passengers. She offers the perfect combination of luxury and expedition. Sea Spirit sets herself apart by providing a level of comfort and luxury not usually found on a ship of her size. Having recently undergone an extensive renovation to all suites and interior public spaces, she looks and feels younger and more elegant than ever. Travellers of all backgrounds are impressed with the size of the staterooms as well as the deluxe furnishings and thoughtful amenities throughout the ship, not to mention the superior cuisine and personalised attention from the crew. At the same time, travellers can enjoy an authentic and exciting adventure as well as easygoing expeditionary atmosphere on board.
Active and dynamic explorations
The Sea Spirit goes where other ships cannot follow. She navigates into protected channels and bays that are out of bounds to larger vessels. Importantly, her smaller passenger numbers mean that everyone can go ashore simultaneously at landing sites in Antarctica and the Arctic where regulations limit the number of visitors ashore. Just imagine how much time and exploration opportunities are saved.
Optional activities available
For the adventurous, sea kayaking and camping are offered as optional activities not found on larger ships. In Poseidon’s Sea Kayak Club, travellers can experience the thrill and tranquility of kayaking in the Polar Regions as part of a small, expertly guided paddling group. In the Antarctica Camping program, guests have an opportunity to slow down and settle in with the awesome sights and mysterious sounds of the White Continent with the benefit of warm and comfortable camping gear provided by Poseidon Expeditions.
From veteran cruise passengers to fiercely independent travellers, everyone wanting to visit the Polar Regions will find that traveling aboard the small cruise ship Sea Spirit is the best way to go.
