Poseidon Expeditions Renews Charter Contract for Sea Spirit

By: Poseidon Expeditions
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - April 9, 2020 - PRLog -- Poseidon Expeditions announced today that it has signed an agreement with ship owner SunStone Ships, Inc. to extend the charter of the 114-passenger expedition ship Sea Spirit for two years. This will keep the ship flying the Poseidon Expeditions banner until May 2024.

Nikolay Saveliev, founder and president of Poseidon Expeditions (https://poseidonexpeditions.com/), a specialist in active adventure cruises in Arctic and Antarctic regions, said that the Sea Spirit (https://poseidonexpeditions.com/ships/sea-spirit/) has received great acceptance in the marketplace and that the company is delighted to be able to continue offering the ship to its travel partners and polar travelers around the globe.

"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. Those wanting to go to Antarctica or to the Arctic understand the advantages that a smaller vessel can provide – better access to remote areas and landing sites; more 'face time' with the expedition team; and a camaraderie among guests and staff that is more difficult to achieve aboard larger ships," he added.

The founder of Poseidon added that plans were still moving forward with a new build, configured for fewer than 150 passengers, but that an official announcement with details was still forthcoming.

Like a migrating bird, the Sea Spirit spends her year between the two polar regions, in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean from late October through mid-March and then in the sub-Arctic and Arctic regions of the British Isles, Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and Greenland from mid-May through September.

For inquires and questions, travelers and their agents can contact the company's North American sales and reservation office at SalesUSA@poseidonexpeditions.com or by telephone at 347-801-2610.
