The newly renovated 76-guest Wilderness Explorer is equipped for action, adventure, and exploration. As with her sister “Wilderness” ships, its interior complements the outside and public and private spaces are loaded with amenities. The ship offers a main lounge that evokes the feel of a National Park Lodge or neighborhood pub, dining room, and ample space on deck for taking in the great outdoors.

On board the Wilderness Explorer:
Three accessible decks are fully equipped for comfort and action. Guests enjoy over-the-top views from the bow or from under-the-stars in two hot tubs; on-deck sauna and fitness equipment; and the EZ Dock launch platform makes getting in the water a synch, even for a novice. Onboard are kayaks; stand-up paddle boards; inflatable skiffs; hiking poles; yoga mats; hydrophone for listening below-surface; and a bow-mounted underwater camera pipes the action to the lounge and to your cabin TV.

Guest Accommodations:
The three cabin categories aboard the Wilderness Explorer: Trailblazer, Pathfinder and Explorer provide single and double accommodation. All cabins are above deck with view windows.

Common to all Wilderness Explorer cabins are flat-screen TV/DVD and iPod docking station.
