Are you ready for an escapade? Try out the Spirit of Adventure
As the name suggests, you can indeed have an adventure while on a cruise in the Spirit of Adventure. This cruise ship is not for people who want a luxury cruise where features like plush cabins, dicing in the casinos, wine tasting, extravagant shows are the order of the day. This ship is more in line with people who are looking for a matured cruising experience that has more to do with edu-cruising rather than a luxury-cruising.
This cruise line was formed by the Saga Holidays. The small size of the ship gives an intimate environment and is the reason why this cruise line gets many repeat passengers-- These passengers get what they look for, i.e. a cozy ambience where people get to know each other onboard.
The open-sitting dinning makes it possible for passengers to move around and sit at different tables at dinner. Informative lectures on the places to be visited are also an integral part if the cruise. However, many random topics are also discussed at times giving the passengers the opportunity to build camaraderie and share thoughts. Quizzes are also held to keep the juices flowing in the intellectual passengers. Activities like casinos are not provided in these ships and are almost a taboo.
