Small ship, big experience

A ship that can do it all

The special feature of the WORLD EXPLORER is its small size. State-of-the art technology ensures that our ship can literally range the high seas. With Ice Class B and Polar Class C, it can travel safely on all the world's seas. With a length of only 126 m, it can make its way into harbours that are inaccessible to big cruise ships. The wonderfully designed space is seen on board, for instance in comfortable cabins and suites from 17 to 44 m², two lounges, a casino, a wellness area and much more.

The best of prospects with cool drinks

After dinner, pop along to Deck 4 for a drink in the Explorer Lounge and exchange notes on the day's impressions in friendly company. Stylish smoking is on offer in the Cigar Lounge, also on Deck 4. For a Sundowner with a breathtaking view, we warmly recommend the Observatory Lounge on Deck 7: with all-round glazing, you have the feeling of enjoying the landscape outdoors. The large glass dome offers a fantastic view of the sky.

Wellness and fitness – however you like it.

Do you feel like a refreshing sauna after a long day on land with many new impressions? Welcome to our wellness area! If you wish, we can pamper you here with a massage. In the pool, you can swim relaxed lengths or take it easy in the whirlpool. Our gym is waiting for you with a small but well-chosen collection of the most modern cardio equipment. Or pop in to our yoga or Pilates sessions.

Edutainment and relaxation

"A clever man finds the best education in travelling", as Goethe already knew. In our on-board theatre we will entertain you with carefully chosen lecturers, well-known experts and fascinating films, all to complete the experience of your destination. The on-board TV-system will offer you "on demand" films and documentaries on the topic of your destination. For fun and amusement, come to our casino with its variety of gaming tables and machines.

Floating hotel rooms

The modern, light and well-furnished cabins are spread over a total of three passenger decks. They offer all the comforts that you would expect from excellent hotels on land. Also, in most of the cabins you are a "spectator" in this breath-taking holiday cinema: either through drop down picture windows or even on your own veranda.

A feast for your palate

In our cosy on-board restaurant, the kitchen crew will pamper you with a varied buffet in the mornings and at lunchtime. In the evenings we have five-course meals served stylishly at table. The international cuisine on board will surprise you with many culinary highlights. All guests will easily find a space at a set mealtime. There is a free choice of tables. For more variety, choose light meals at lunchtime from a changing menu, such as freshly made pasta and crisp salads, for example in the Lido Café.
