Spirit of Yorktown

The Spirit of Yorktown is one of Cruise West''s newest overnight vessels, with a year-round cruising schedule that takes it as far north as Alaska and south, into Mexico''s marine-life-filled Sea of Cortes. The decor is sleek, stylish, and quietly elegant with light wood accents and artistically etched glass.

The Observation Lounge features expansive picture windows, a lending library, plus cozy banquettes and conversation circles for getting to know your fellow travelers. Every stateroom features a wide picture window or porthole, private facilities, writing desk and ample storage. And when it''s time to go outside, guests enjoy generous outside space on 3 decks.

NEW! Explorer Class Cabins

The Choice is Yours
Count on Us

Each day of your voyage will be different, but some things will be wonderfully consistent. Breakfast, for example, will always s give you delightful options, whether you prefer to sip your morning coffee out on deck or enjoy it at a leisurely pace in the dining room. And dinner is a delight. From soup to dessert, it's homemade and delicious.

Whatever the day brings, you'll be equipped to enjoy it.

Relax in the lounge (by the second evening, you'll treat it like your own living room), rest your elbows on the rail while your search the water for whales.. Join your Exploration Leader for an up-close excursion in our inflatable craft.. Go exploring in charming ports.. Or just put your feet you and relax. We won't let you miss a thing.

We're here to make every aspect of your journey enjoyable.

Our crew has been especially trained to enhance your experience, from our knowledgeable Exploration Leader to the Pastry Chef whose homemade breads and luscious creations grace each meal. And whether you're onboard or on land, gratuities are neither expected nor required.

Our style may be casual, but our service never is. Our only priority is to make this the best trip of your life.

Think Casual

Our focus is always on the destination, so informality is key. After all, if there's a whale spouting off the bow, dinner will just have to wait, and you don't want to get whale spume on a tux!

When you're on board, you'll spend most of your waking hours in the spacious public areas. Unlike many other ships, on the Spirit of Yorktown have open guest access to the bow area, giving you the best views. And of course, all the lounges and dining rooms feature large view windows, as do most of our staterooms.
