As newcomer Sea Voyager Expeditions gears up for its launch on Aug. 31 – when it begins taking guests to explore the remote waters, beaches, jungles and cities of Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Panama – one of the most exciting parts of the company’s story is tied to its vessel, the M/V Sea Voyager.
Built as an expedition passenger vessel in 1982 by Chesapeake Shipbuilding in Baltimore, Md., the Sea Voyager has a varied history that ultimately led to its latest $2 million renovation, aimed at providing unmatched comfort for 60 guests and 31 crew members during expeditions that last from seven to 12 nights.
For passengers who want to be among the first to experience the refurbished vessel, Sea Voyager Expeditions is offering special deals that apply on almost all departures between Sept. and Dec. 2012, with savings from 25 to 35%; discounted fares are $2,460 to $5,588 per person, double. Solo guests also win with no supplements, paying the same price as those booking as a couple.
In the past three decades, the ship has had three names, explored the waters of two continents, was affiliated with two other cruise lines, and has experienced a series of refurbishments. This most recent refurbishment – an investment of $2 million – took place between November 2011 and July 2012.
In partnership with Colombia Ecoturismo, Sea Voyager Expeditions brought the vessel up to the highest of standards and turned the Sea Voyager into one of the nicest small ships afloat today by upgrading cabins and suites, improving public areas, overhauling the galley, installing a chlorination system, and making various other changes aimed at creating a truly exceptional expedition ship that features all the latest amenities and all the comforts travelers expect . . . and more.
