M/v Sea Spirit Ready To Sail Following $2.5 Million Refurb

by Maria Lisella

Poseidon Expeditions’ polar cruising star, the all-suite, 114-passenger M/v Sea Spirit, has repositioned to Nuuk, Greenland, to begin her 2017 Arctic season, following a $2.5 million-plus refurbishment of all 54 guest suites during a recent dry dock in Vigo, Spain.

This was the final phase of a full-ship refurbishment that began two years ago with restoration of the ship’s public areas. Sea Spirit sailed originally as the Renaissance IV, then worldwide and in Alaska as the popular Spirit of Oceanus. She underwent technical improvements for polar cruising in 2010. Since then as Sea Spirit she has been providing polar adventure cruises in both the Arctic and Antarctic environments.

Poseidon Expeditions will again offer a wide range of Arctic cruises aboard the Sea Spirit, including a first-ever Voyage to The Arctic expedition, June 17-29, that explores Iceland’s northern fjords and travels along the Arctic Circle to the Norwegian coast where a number of stops are planned before proceeding north to Bear Island and the Spitsbergen Archipelago. Remote Franz Josef Land in the Russian High Arctic will also be explored on an Aug. 14-29 voyage.
