Cruise West Spirit of Oceanus gets new life…Sea Spirit
Cruise West, Spirit of Oceanus sold to a charter company who re named her Sea Spirit is going to get a new life and sail again.
Quark will charter her to temporarily take the place of their present charter which is in dry dock being repaired.
She will replace the Clipper Adventurer who ran around during her Arctic 2010 season. That incident led to the cancellation of first three scheduled voyages of the 2010-11 Antarctic season. The repairs to Clipper Adventurer will take longer than previously expected. As a result, Sea Spirit, formerly known as Spirit of Oceanus, for the Antarctic 2010-2011 season. Sea Spirit will be used instead of Clipper Adventurer, taking over Clipper Adventurer’s scheduled voyages.
Her first voyage as a Quark Expeditions vessel will be the 20-day Explorers’ Quest . Sea Spirit will carry a maximum of 120 passengers. She is equipped with rigid inflatable boats – RIBs – for shore transfers and cruising. The RIB fleet is comprised of Achilles and Zodiac boats.
Once the Clipper Adventurer is repaired the Sea Spirit will be sent home for a new company to use her.
