Why We Like Her

  • CABIN VIEWS

    All cabins have either a private walk-out or Juliet balcony for direct ocean views, meaning guests won’t miss out on wildlife viewing when they prefer not to be in public spaces.

  • PUBLIC SPACE

    Public areas have been designed with individual travel styles in mind, including the glass-domed observation deck for quiet contemplation and the Explorer Lounge for social gatherings.

  • FITNESS

    In addition to the gym and sauna, World Explorer boasts an outdoor running track for those wanting to stay extra active during their polar adventure.

  • SPEED

    With one of the highest cruising speeds in the industry, you’re likely to get further and see more, spending less time on repositions and more time at your destination.

Insider Advice

We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that – straight from the field – and it’s updated in real time if things change.
