The World Explorer is a new state of the art, purpose-built expedition vessel, among the fastest and most luxurious in our fleet of small ships.
Maximum passengers: 176
Every guest cabin boasts either a walk-out or Juliet balcony for direct ocean views, whilst communal areas include a glass-domed observation lounge, an explorer lounge, a library, a dedicated lecture theatre, a boutique shop and a spectacular dining room/restaurant.
Fitness fanatics can keep busy in the gym or on the outdoor running track, and those after some rest and recuperation can relax in the sauna, spa or heated plunge pool.
With a cruising speed of 16 knots, the World Explorer is one of the fastest moving ships operating in the polar regions, resulting in less time at sea and more time ashore. She is also one of the more environmentally friendly vessels on offer, with a hybrid engine designed to minimise impact on the sensitive polar regions.
