ARCTIC SUMMER/AUTUMN 2017

Sea Spirit - New loyalty scheme for returning Sea Spirit passengers

Sea Spirit has proved so popular that passengers have been quick to book another trip on her.

As a result Sea Spirit has introduced a new loyalty programme called High Latitudes. Every voyage brings added savings and benefits which also happen to be transferable, which means that family and friends can also benefit. The new Polar Circle gift card can be used to reduce the price of any future voyage with the ship and take advantage of the attractive benefits which increase with the number of trips taken. 

 

Kamchatka - make a date with the ‘land of fire and ice’

See native people, bears and volcanoes on a voyage exploring the eastern seaboard of Russia. Choked by ice in winter, the region comes alive in summer with birds, reindeer, mountain sheep, brown bears and salmon.

when:                   Various voyages from end May to end September 2017
