Since September 15, we (we were just under 80) were in a 10-day cruise on the Sea Spirit in East Greenland. Unforgettable impressions and great fun!!!
We have a large experience of cruises on big ships with passengers from one and a half thousand or more. The last our trip has nothing to do with all the previous ones: about 100 passengers, 70 - the crew, all landings on the shore are included in the cost. Service (cabin, food, etc.) is not worse than on large ships. In the zodiac-boats and on the shore you are under constant surveillance of the expedition team members. They are experienced, knowledgeable and always friendly and attentive people. Flora and fauna of the Polar region and its landscapes are interesting and picturesque. Comments of professional members of the expedition team are very capacious and always in place and time. You will bring fantastic photos home. I strongly recommend this kind of travel!
However, if you are usually used to spending most of the cruise time in the pool, on all sorts of shows and boutiques, you will not find all this on this ship. Truly speaking, you would not have time on Sea Spirit for this: zodiacs trips, walking on the shore and excellent stories about the surrounding nature. We are planning a similar trip again.

In conclusion: Many thanks to all the staff of Poseidon, who to some extent took part in the realization of our trip.

Fantastic trip to East Greenland. Loved every moment.

The ship's crew and Poseidon staff took great care of us. M/V Sea Spirit was very comfortable and well appointed. Lovely ship. The meals were well served and offered a great selection for both the set menu and buffets. All senior staff were seen regularly around the ship and were open to chats and solicited comments on your experiences.

Weather and ice conditions necessitated some modifications to the trip, however the alternatives were excellent and well chosen.

I would not hesitate to recommend Poseidon Adventures.

Great support and service from Discover The World in making all of the arrangements for our Tailor Made Norwegian Fjord holiday; everything went like clockwork....apart from Avis car hire who gave us a car which had an oil problem! Even then, and when Avis were about as much use as a chocolate teapot, Discover The World helped us get it sorted out quickly.

      About Poseidon Expeditions

      Since 1999, Poseidon Expeditions has been leading adventures to the world’s Polar Regions.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      An innovator in polar exploration, Poseidon takes you on a breathtaking journey through icy waters and snow. They offer such activities as camping in Antarctica, penguin viewing (of course!) and adventure sea kayaking through their own kayaking club. 

      Who Travels With Them?

      The great thing about a cruise is even the most cautious traveler can visit adventurous destinations. They do require a single supplement if you are traveling solo, so unless you’re ok paying a bit extra, their trips are ideally suited to families or couples. The average age of travelers is between 45 and 65 and they recommend that travelers be physically fit.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Poseidon Expeditions specializes in the polar regions of the world, meaning Antarctica and the Arctic. You will visit the enchanting lands of Greenland, and experience the thrill of dodging ice in a zodiac in Antarctica; cruise through Iceland, and visit the North Pole. Due to their specialized focus, they have extensive expertise in these regions, giving you an in depth look at their tremendous beauty and history.

      Why Travel With Them?

      For an adventurous travel experience including fun shore excursions such as hiking and a lot of on-ship activities such as whale watching. Knowledgeable expedition guides provide expert insight on local wildlife, and the science behind the incredible landscapes you’ll explore.
