Spirit of Enderby


Carrying only 48 passengers, the Spirit of Enderby is easily the most intimate Antarctica cruise ship on the market. Fully ice-strenghtened and designed with adventure in mind, a small ship cruise aboard the Spirit of Enderby really feels like a private trip to the edge of the world.

Sister ship to the Polar Pioneer, the Spirit of Enderby is tremendously tiny and totally exclusive. Originally built as a research vessel, it is extremely robust and designed to thrive in the most remote fringes of the world. This means that it can weather choppy waters and stormy seas with ease, making it a comfortable way to travel to Antarctica.

The real focus of Antarctica cruises aboard the Spirit of Enderby is getting the passengers ashore to explore Antarctica in depth, and with only 48 expeditioners on each voyage, you’ll feel as though you’re discovering this astonishing landscape almost alone. Staffed by highly experienced guides and naturalists specialising in Antarctica, travelling to Antarctica aboard this ship is an educational and eye-opening adventure. It’s a completely indescribable experience and the memories will last a lifetime.
