Review of Sea Endurance

MS Sea Endurance cruise ship (formerly MS Quest) was built in Denmark in 1992 and fully refurbished in 2005. This is an unique vessel accommodating just 53 passengers in all 26 outside cabins. Its small size allows navigation where bigger ships cannot access. Yet, due to its substantial build and design, the ship cruises easily the Svalbard's wilderness and the tranquil Scottish lochs.

Passenger cabins are situated on two decks and are priced according to location and size. All feature outside views, individually controlled air-conditioning, private toilet and shower. They are well designed with pleasing colours and typical Scandinavian light woods. The superior grade staterooms on decks three and four are quite spacious and feature a seating area. The owner’s stateroom on deck four has armchairs and a small table, as well as two large picture windows.

The Panorama lounge is located on the top deck of MS Sea Endurance and affords excellent views. It is the main meeting place onboard and here the team provides informative and informal briefings and talks. A small library and the bar are also found in the lounge. The elegant dining room seats all travelers in a single sitting and pampers with delicious meals with a mixture of buffet and table service. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style affairs and dinner combines a salad and starter buffet with served main course and dessert. All meals offer a choice of meat, fish and vegetarian options.

The Bridge is open to passengers and Scandinavian officers provide charts and sailing information for those interested in ship’s navigation and operation. A doctor is also at hand onboard. There is ample space to relax and take in the surroundings, but communal spaces are buzzy following a wildlife sighting. Adventure cruising is all about exploration and this is the reason why an itinerary aboard Sea Endurance ship  is never fixed. Cruises appeal to those with adventurous streak, keen to get off the beaten track and experience destinations removed from civilization. The vessel is equipped with 4 Zodiacs which allow exploring places well off tourist track. Onboard atmosphere is consequently informal. Time onboard is often spent on ship's Panorama Deck.
