The all-suite 114-guest Sea Explorer has an ice-strengthened hull, a fleet of Zodiac inflatable craft for forays ashore, an experienced complement of officers and crew, and retractable fin stabilizers, making it an ideal ship for cruising in comfort in polar regions. Guests are accommodated in outside-facing suites, each of which affords views of the spectacular scenery. Meals are prepared by European chefs and served in the stately restaurant at a single, unassigned seating. Sea Explorer also features two lounges, a library, exercise area, elevator serving all decks, and a sun deck with Jacuzzi. The ship meets the latest international safety rules, including those of the U.S. Coast Guard.
