Poseidon Expeditions renews contract for Sea Spirit

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.
