Serious about Polar expedition cruising in comfort: speed, stability, and an excellent ice-class.
With 1A-Super ice class rating - the highest classification given to passenger vessels - the US-operated Seaventure is serious about Polar expedition cruising. This ship is also serious about comfort: originally built in 1990, she sets sail for the Polar regions in late 2021 following an extensive refurbishment and with a range of accommodation from porthole cabins to staterooms with balcony. Guest numbers are limited to just 149, ensuring the experience is a personal one too. Facilities include a bar and dining room, library, sauna, fitness centre, custom-built citizen science lab and a heated saltwater pool. The highly-trained expedition team oversees a full programme of shore landings and experiences. Furthermore, sea kayaking or camping is available on selected departures at additional cost.

This was a trip of a lifetime. The scale of the natural beauty of Antarctica is overwhelming. The icebergs, penguins ,mountains and sunshine which reflected it all in the clear water was breathtaking. I feel privileged to have been able to experience it thank you.AW, Stanmore

Most memorable experience: "A hard question to answer, but probably being able to walk on the continent, and not just strolling along the shore line, but fairly serious walking on snow and ice up onto the local ridges."HW, New Romney
Every bit was memorable from the rough sea crossings to the wonderful remoteness of the destination and the absolutely fantastic wildlife.HD, London
