Meet our Polar Expedition Ship, the MS Seaventure
The 2021/2022 season marks the inaugural voyages with our newest ship, the MS Seaventure, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome this incredible ship to the Polar Latitudes family. This expedition vessel is perfectly sized for what we aim to accomplish each season, and it is an impeccable blend of comfort, luxury, and practicality.
To start, the Seaventure boasts an 1-A Super ice class rating, making it able to maneuver through tough ice conditions with ease. This rating is the highest ice class awarded to passenger vessels and it means that we will be able to explore coves, bays, and channels that previously might have been inaccessible for us.
When we are not adventuring around on the Antarctic landscape, the ship is an activity in itself. Guests can enjoy the sauna, fitness center, and heated saltwater pool during their ‘down time’ onboard. Guests can also head over to visit the custom-built science lab where you can chat with our on-board experts and participate in citizen science research and projects.
With the abundance of storage space available on the Seaventure, we can carry more equipment than in the past- which means that more of our guests can participate in activities like kayaking and camping. The more the merrier, we say!
The common areas on Seaventure are spacious and beautifully appointed. You’ll love relaxing in the lounges as well as the library, fitness and spa areas. With two elevators serving all the passenger decks, everyone can easily move around the ship- take note if your legs are tired from the day’s adventures.
Of course, we can’t forget the wonderful staterooms located in the Seaventure – your home away from home. Each room features exterior views, and you can relax in your sitting area while taking in the breathtaking vistas of Antarctica. Other amenities in the rooms include a flat screen tv, telephone, safe to store your valuables and independent temperature controls.
Warm yourself up in a hot shower after day on the ice and indulge with luxurious toiletries provided to you in your cabin. No need to pack a hair dryer, we’ve got that covered! And feel free to help yourself to the complimentary mini-bar for an in-room beverage while you unwind.
With the health and well-being top of mind for all our guests, staff and crew, we have upgraded the ventilation systems so that they will provide always-circulating FRESH air to each individual cabin. All common areas and every other space on board will be sanitized each night while you sleep. Hand sanitizer stations can be found within easy reach around the ship. The Seaventure also features one of the largest and most thoroughly equipped medical facilities of any small ship, with a certified practicing emergency MD on duty 24/7 aboard every voyage.
Come mealtime, the Seaventure features two kitchens including one on the Lido deck for al fresco dining when weather permits. There’s nothing quite like bundling up in a cozy blanket while you dive into a delicious meal prepared with care by our chefs. The ship also has a lovely dining room that you will find sociable and comfortable. You’ll be impressed by the quality of each meal, and we guarantee your bellies with be happy and full after enjoying a feast with newfound friends.
So come explore with us on the MS Seaventure- your floating hotel as you explore the vast wilderness of the great white continent.
