Spirit of 98
When producers of the Kevin Costner film "Wyatt Earp" were seeking a turn-of-the-century steamer to carry their hero north to the Gold Rush, they were delighted to find our Spirit of '98. Though she boasts all modern amenities, she was designed to emulate an early-20th century coastal steamer complete with carved wooden cabinetry, plush floral upholstery and a Grand Salon complete with a player piano, plus a full bar with old-world charm.
A luxurious Owner's Suite occupies three rooms on the top deck, including a living room, king-size bed and full bathtub.

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 '98 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.
