MS Seaventure ideally suited for Antarctic voyages; the ship has a “1A Super” ice-class rating, the highest ice class awarded to passenger vessels. Maximum capacity aboard the Seaventure is 164 guests, though they usually only take 139.
The Seaventure will begin cruising through Antarctica on November 2021. Seaventure is 364 feet long, with a width (beam) of 56 feet, and a draft to baseline of 16 feet. The Seaventure has a cruising speed of 15 knots, making it one of the swiftest vessels in the Antarctic.
Public areas aboard the Seaventure include a club/lounge, bar, outdoor cafe for al fresco dinning when weather permits, a restaurant, a citizen science laboratory, a clinic, library with computers, and two elevators serving all passenger decks.
Deck 7 also features a fitness center, sauna, heated saltwater swimming pool, sun deck, and panorama lounge.
All meals onboard the ship, hot drinks such as coffee and tea, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are included in all itineraries.
Complimentary Wi-Fi is available on the computers at the library, as well as 200 MB of internet access for guests personal devices.
Seaventure offers a full range of programs and guided experiences on a daily basis, but also places a high priority on improvisation. The expedition team may call on the crew to veer off course to experience a part of Antarctica rarely seen by human eyes, or unexpectedly call the Zodiacs into service to allow guests a rare, up-close glimpse of a family of orcas. That kind of responsiveness means you’ll be able to maximize interaction with nature.
Zodiac cruising and onshore hiking are included with every departure (weather permitting). Among the other activities available to Seaventure guests are kayaking, snowshoeing, and camping. The citizen science lab is always working, gathering critical data in partnership with research facilities like NASA and the Scripps Institute.
On every voyage, a dedicated photography coach will guide you in the finer points of capturing the beauty of this continent’s wildlife and landscapes.
Seaventure features more storage space than most vessels, allowing the ship to carry more equipment. This ensures that larger groups of guests can participate in each landing and activity.
