The small cruise ship line Poseidon Expeditions specializing in high-latitude polar voyages opened bookings for Arctic season May-September 2024 and Antarctic season October 2024-February 2025 part of the schedule of the 114-passenger boat Sea Spirit.

New “super” early booking rates are offered through the end of May 2023 for all polar cruises in 2024-2025, with 20% discounts off the regular rates, depending on the category reserved. From June through to the end of October, the discounts are reduced by 5%.

The stylish expedition ship Sea Spirit serves both polar regions for the company. Arctic rates in 2024 for the all-suite ship begin at US$6770 per person (if 3 people share a triple stateroom) and include roundtrip airfare between Oslo (Norway) and Longyearbyen (Svalbard), where the trip begins and ends.

The rate applies to a June 9th-18th/June 17th-26th, 2024, 10-day West Svalbard & Polar Ice Edge journey. The same suite for 3 with the “super” early booking discount brings a December 6th-17th/December 16th-27th, 2024, 12-day Antarctica Peninsula voyage for US$8,581 per person. Double occupancy rates for the departures begin at US$9,261/US$11,386, respectively.

Activities on/off the ship are directed by a team of bilingual polar guides, educators, and scientists. Guests are offered a wealth of opportunities to venture from the cruise ship. Shore landings provide the opportunity to explore and partake in guide-led interpretive walks/photography workshops. Optional Sea kayaking/Zodiac cruising is offered in both polar regions. Optional camping can be arranged in Antarctica.
