Sea Adventurer

Designed to carry travelers in comfort to the most remote corners of the world, Sea Adventurer was built in Yugoslavia in 1976, refurbished in 1999 and had further upgrades in 2002. You will be impressed by this ice-strengthened ship, which carries up to 117 passengers and features a spacious forward lounge and bar, window-lined dining room and promenades.

The nimble, ice-strengthened Sea Adventurer is undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation. Take a look at what to expect for 2017:

  • A new look and feel throughout
  • Renovations to the interior of the ship including outside cabins with ensuites, spacious forward lounge and bar, and other amenities
  • The addition of new passenger cabins
  • New bathrooms in every cabin, and upgrades to the Main Lounge and Main Dining Room, gym, and select suites
  • Significant technical enhancements – including two new engines, generators, gear boxes, drive systems, and re-bladed propellers
  • Increased fuel efficiency, and a minimized carbon footprint. 

For Arctic 2017, enjoy greater comforts, amenities, and an enhanced onboard experience!
