THIS IS YOUR ALL VEGAN FLOATING HOTEL

The Seaventure is made for visiting some of the most remote and exotic areas of the world as the ship's enviable maneuverability and miniscule draught allow it to cruise through ice-filled waters and into crevices where larger and more traditional passenger ships fear to tread.

With an E4 ice rating - the highest ice class awarded to passenger vessels - the 6,752-ton Seaventure is well-equipped to handle the challenge of gliding amongst glaciers.

The 4-star plus Seaventure has plenty of amenities for a small adventure vessel. Built in 1990 and constantly renovated and upgraded, the ship features a lounge, library, swimming pool, fitness center and beauty salon.

The ship is built to make the most of every memorable opportunity, and the crew is always poised to enhance the experience. The ship's contingent of 12 rubber zodiacs let passengers become part of their surroundings, rather than just viewing them from afar. The small boats can be launched at all hours of the day and night (especially during trips close to the poles, where sunlight often never wanes) to zip among nature's ice sculptures and enjoy animal encounters.

The dining room features big picture windows and open seating. Guests can also enjoy breakfast and lunch in The Club or al-fresco.The restaurant is large enough to accommodate all passengers in a single seating, eliminating the need for multiple seating times at dinner. Open seating is observed during breakfast and lunch.

All 80 staterooms are pretty spacious by expedition-ship standards at 194 square feet, and - in keeping with the ship's emphasis on constant exposure to the ship's scenic destinations - all cabins are outside rooms and feature large windows, with the exception of those on Deck 3 which have only portholes. Deck 6 is home to 16 balcony cabins. Two 258 square ft. balcony suites are located on Deck 7 and offer the added perk of a seating area.

Staterooms feature amenities like HDTV, DVD player, individual air conditioning, minibar, electronic safe box (in the closet), plush bathrobes. All staterooms are outside. Handicapped (wheelchair-accessible) cabins are also available.

Lectures are held in the roomy and comfortable Panorama Lounge, with boasts a layout that's half college lecture hall, half your living room. 

The outdoor pool and sun deck is a relaxing place to spend down time on warm-weather days. Other distractions include a small fitness center with about five pieces of cardio equipment and a sauna.

Everything on Seaventure is geared toward one goal: To give passengers the opportunity to see some of the most amazing sights the world has to offer while sailing away the vegan way. It's hard to imagine a ship better equipped to deliver. Seaventure is designed to get you within an arm's length of those natural wonders, and the cordial and dedicated crew does everything possible to facilitate your enjoyment of the environment and activities. Passengers are often allowed on the bridge or into spaces usually limited to crew access in order to get better views of wildlife or to capture that perfect photo.

Is there wifi / internet connection on board?

Yes, there will be WiFi onboard the ship, which is also already included in your cruise fare! Being far from shore and especially on sea days, a connection can not be guaranteed. Although the icy continent has become a popular tourist destination and scientific hub, it is still very much an off-the-grid destination. Please be aware, that internet on board can never be as reliable as on land. There will always be some level of unreliability, especially the further out to sea you sail.

We recommend downloading your content such as movies, series or software updates before the cruise.

Please note that the wifi is limited to 1 GB per guest.

What is not included in the cruise fare?

International Flights
Purchases of additional drinks obtained outside of the package included, souvenirs, gifts and other personal items purchased on board or ashore
Personal services such as spa, laundry and telecommunication charges
Additional Wifi (2GB per guest included)
Baggage, travel cancellation and personal insurance
Any additional costs for medical care or medical insurance

When do I receive my cruise tickets?

You can expect to receive your cruise tickets approximately 21-28 days prior to your expedition cruise departure.
[Although this is dependent on you having completed your Advanced Passenger Information.]

Do you offer a pre- or post-cruise extension?

Two additional nights in Buenos Aires are already included. One night prior to the cruise and one night afterwards in a 4*/5* Hotel including breakfast and dinner.
Enjoy a city tour of the City of Buenos Aires with a local guide. Then transfer to the airport for your flight to Ushuaia. Let the magical journey begin!
Please check the day by day description for more details.

Where do I find the Terms & Conditions and the Cancellation Policy that apply to this special cruise?

You can find our additional Terms and Conditions here: https://vtr.onl/TCsAntarctica2025

What do I have to pack?

Our motto is – There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear. It’s never a good idea to take shortcuts when it comes to clothing – being improperly dressed can impact your enjoyment of the voyage! Onboard the ship there is no dress code. 

The best clothing is a layered system with an outer layer that is waterproof. The air between the layers provides additional insulation.

  • Base Layer – Thermal underwear and a pair of thermal socks.
  • Mid Layer – Pants (fleece is ideal), a light cotton shirt, and a fleece.
  • Outer Layer – Waterproof pants and a waterproof jacket.
    Note: Lightweight disposable rain gear will not endure more than one landing, so please bring high quality, expedition-weight waterproof pants.
  • Shoes – Sturdy walking shoes or sneakers with a good grip sole for the slippery deck, and rubber boots. 

 

You will receive more details on what to pack with your travel documents three to six weeks prior to the cruise.

Is there a gym or spa onboard?

Yes! Seaventure offers a fitness center with cardio equipment and free weights and a sauna. The usage of the gym and sauna are already included in your cruise fare!

Do you have laundry facilities on board?

Yes. Laundry service is available on board; however, the ships do not have dry cleaning facilities. There is no self-service laundry facility on board the ships and no irons for passenger use. You will find a price list for laundry services in your cabin

What happens in the case of a serious medical problem?

In the unfortunate event of a serious medical problem, our onboard doctor will take every possible step to stabilize the patient, who can then be evacuated to the nearest facility or airfield, for more comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. 

Please be aware that there are limits to what our physician can treat and evacuations in this remote area may be lengthy.

Any additional costs that may occur due to medical emergencies are not Vegan Travels responsibility. Please make sure to check if you are ensured for such cases. More details can be found here: https://vtr.onl/TCsAntarctica2025 

Is there a doctor on board the ship?

Yes! There is a currently-practicing and English-speaking doctor experienced in Emergency medicine. Medical services are available 24 hours a day.

Any additional costs that may occur due to medical emergencies are not Vegan Travels responsibility. Please make sure to check if you are ensured for such cases. More details can be found here: https://vtr.onl/TCsAntarctica2025

Where do I fly to?

You would fly into Buenos Aires-Ezeiza (EZE). Please note that Buenos Aires has two airports – Ministro Pistarini International Airport-Ezeiza (EZE), which is mainly used for international flights. Jorge Newberry (AEP) is mainly used for domestic flights. 

We also recommend that you consult with a travel agent if you need assistance with booking flights, as we are not in a position to provide flight assistance as a cruise operator.

What will the weather be like on my trip? 

Weather in Antarctica can be very unpredictable, and we don’t get the same type of forecasts that we’re used to in most other parts of the world.  We get information about general conditions and trends in the areas we visit, and we make our own forecasts in real time based on the data we have at the moment. Average temperatures in Antarctica during our sailing season is between -5°C (23°F) and 5°C (41°F).
Average temperatures on the Falkland Islands in March and April are between 5°C (41°F) and 12°C (53°F) and in South Georgia between -11°C (12°F) and -3°C (27°F). 

The best defense against bad weather is quality gear. You will receive more information with your travel documents. 

Do you require insurance?

Yes!
All passengers must carry a Travel Insurance Plan.

This Plan must cover personal injury, medical expenses, repatriation expenses, evacuation expenses, and pre-existing medicalconditions.

As any potential evacuation from Antarctica can be very expensive, werecommend a high coverage.
Additionally, passengers are strongly advised to carry a 
Comprehensive Travel Insurance Plan with CFAR (Cancel For Any Reason) which should also include coverage for cancellation, curtailment, trip interruption, and all other expenses which might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to or otherwise involving a passenger.

Please also note:

Travel to Antarctica carries with it a slight but inherent risk that a voyage may be interrupted after the voyage has begun.

In such matters the Master of the vessel has full authority to make decisions that can affect itineraries and trip length. In such a case, Vegan Travel cannot be responsible for situations outside its control, and in the event of financial losses, your travel insurance may be your only contact for recovery of funds.

Should you elect to travel without comprehensive insurance you are accepting this risk.

Sail with peace of mind - consider purchasing a comprehensive cruise travel insurance if you're not satisfied with the coverage provided by your travel credit card. 

Travel insurance (not included in the cruise fare) can help recover your losses.
Vegan Travel 
can’t be held responsible for any [financial] losses.

Where do I disembark and from where will I fly home?

On day 20 (05 April 2025) you will disembark the MS Seaventure in Puerto Madryn. We will take you from our ship to the airport in Puerto Madryn and fly with you back to Buenos Aires. In Buenos Aires one more night at our 4*/5* hotel is included in your cruise fare. On day 21 (06 April 2025) you can catch any flight back to your hometown. Please book a flight from Buenos Aires. 

We recommend consulting a travel agent if you need assistance with booking flights, as we are not in a position to provide flight assistance as a cruise operator.

Will I get seasick on an expedition ship?

Expedition ships are designed with a special stabilization technology, but every person is different. With that said, please consider bringing some preventative medication with you if you are susceptible to motion sickness or discomfort. Check with your personal physician or pharmacist for specific recommendations.

Are Drink packages available?

Softdrinks, Wine and Beer with lunch and dinner are already included in the cruise fare!
If you order other drinks throughout the day, those will be added to your on-board account that you will pay at the end of the cruise. At the self service station you can get 24 hours a day specialty coffees, teas & bottled water for free.

Do I need a Visa?

Obtaining required travel documents including Visas is your sole responsibility. Requirements vary by country you are visiting and by your country of residence, and are subject to change at any time. Please check with the government agencies of the countries you will be visiting for the most recent information.

Our destinations belong to the following territories: Argentina, Great Britain (Falkland Islands and South Georgia); Antarctica is a state-free territory. 

Will I need cash onboard?

No. All shipboard charges will be charged to an account, so you do not need to pay cash as you go. At the end of your voyage, you may pay your tab with cash or credit card.
The only thing you would need cash for is the tip. You will receive more information regarding tipping with your travel documents a few weeks prior to the cruise.

Can I pay in installments? 

Vegan Antarctica Cruise budgeting made easy. Pay the deposit when booking & spread the rest over time! Up to 18 monthly installments – without any extra fees. Vegan Travel simply charges the credit card on file every month.
