Introduction

The Spirit of Enderby is a fully ice-strengthened expedition vessel, built in 1984 for polar and oceanographic research and is perfect for expedition travel.

She carries just 50 passengers and was refurbished in March 2013 to provide comfortable accommodation in twin share cabins approximately half of which have private facilities. All cabins have outside windows or portholes and ample storage space.

Additional upgrades and enhancements were completed prior to the start of the 2018 season. In the public spaces, the bar/library now has a wonderful relaxed, cosy atmosphere – expansions to the space and a complete overhaul of the seating now provide a flexible space  where everyone can comfortably gather together to have a chat about the days events, enjoy a drink at the bar or just find a quiet space to read and catch up on emails. Updated sound and visual technology allow staff to conduct briefings or share information in a more relaxed environment.  A fresh, crisp new look will greet you as you walk into the dining rooms - new curtains and décor have significantly brightened the rooms to match the standard of food that is served in them.

The cabins have also had some small changes to update their interiors - new linen, carpet, seat coverings and mattresses provide a more comfortable and modern look for passengers to enjoy.

The cuisine is excellent and is prepared by top New Zealand and Australian chefs.

The real focus and emphasis of every expedition is getting you ashore as often as possible for as long as possible with maximum safety and comfort. Expeditions are accompanied by some of the most experienced naturalists and guides, who have devoted a lifetime to field research in the areas that we visit. The ship is crewed by a very enthusiastic and most experienced Russian captain and crew.

The name Spirit of Enderby honours the work and the vision of the Enderby Brothers of London. The Enderby captains were at the forefront of Antarctic exploration for almost 40 years in the early 1800s. It also celebrates Enderby Island, arguably the greatest Subantarctic Island in the world.
