Poseidon Expeditions has signed an agreement with shipowner SunStone Ships to extend the charter of expedition ship Sea Spirit until May 2024.
Sea Spirit has capacity for 114-passengers, offering cruises in the two polar regions. She spends late October to mid-March in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, before travelling to the sub-Arctic and Arctic regions from mid-May until September.
“With the Sea Spirit, we have a smaller-capacity, premium vessel that’s perceived as very desirable compared with most of the newly announced polar-class ships in the range of 200-500 passengers,” said Nikolay Saveliev, founder and president of Poseidon Expeditions. “This ship has delivered a consistently high level of service and performance in the polar regions from the ship’s officers, catering and hospitality team. Sunstone has done a great job keeping the passenger areas renovated and the technical features consistently updated, such as the new, state-of-the art Rolls Royce Zero Speed Stabilizers installed in 2019.”
Poseidon Expeditions also confirmed that plans were in place for a new build with capacity for less than 150 passengers, with further details to be announced.
