Ocean Endeavour Cabins, Staterooms, and Suites

Ocean Endeavour's Owner's Suite and Junior Suites are the largest on the ship. While the Junior Suites are similar in size (about 30 m2), the Owner's Suite features two enormous forward-facing windows (the bow) and a bathroom with a hot tub. All Junior Suites include single-paned windows, and most bathrooms feature only showers. Each cabin and suite features private bathrooms, flat-screen televisions, a desk and chair, a storage area, and a 220-volt outlet. Please note that the elevator only serves the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors.

The majority of Ocean Endeavour staterooms include portholes or windows that provide views of the outside world. The ship is entirely self-contained except for a block of single inner cabins on Deck 5. Solo visitors who book one of these avoid sharing a room or paying a single supplement. Twin cabin layouts and sizes vary due to the ship's age. There are portholes single- or double-paned windows available. Certain windows are obstructed in their views. There is also the choice of a triple, double bed, or two single beds.
