Cabins & Suites

A welcoming haven after an exhilarating day exploring

All accommodations are outside featuring oversized picture windows or a balcony that connect you with the passing views. Double occupancy cabins come in a variety of configurations, including two single beds, two beds that can be converted to a queen-sized bed, and queen-sized beds.

Soothingly decorated in quiet earth tones, National Geographic Explorer’s spacious cabins offer a large desk, with ample drawer space. Most offer a comfortable armchair for reading. Cabins designed for solo travelers are only slightly smaller than double occupancy cabins, and feature the same amenities.

Individual climate control is available in every cabin. Reading lamps above the bed allow for a focused beam of light to ensure your neighbor sleeps undisturbed.

Thirteen of Explorer’s cabins feature a private balcony with chairs, and a large sliding glass door that provides easy access and exceptional views. Her suites are radiant spaces with expansive windows as well as some with balconies; several also offer a living room-style area appointed with couch that converts to accommodate a third person.

Each cabin has a flat panel TV with several channels: for movies; for National Geographic documentaries; and one for displaying the ship’s electronic chart system with the ship’s current position. Another channel allows you to listen to lounge lectures or presentations from the comfort of your cabin. A public address system keeps you alerted to the daily activities, including any wildlife sightings such as an early morning polar bear.

Bathrooms are also generously sized with a roomy glass-walled shower stall, and suites feature twin sinks. They are stocked with environmentally-inspired bath products and shower gel, hair dryers, and cozy white robes.

Beds are cossetted in our signature feather duvets and crisp cotton sheeting.

Designed with expeditions in mind 
The National Geographic Atlas in your cabin is one indicator that you’re on an expedition. Ample room to hang your parkas and plenty of drawers and hooks for the amount of clothing you might need on a longer voyage are others. In addition, there is abundant under-bed storage space for luggage. There is, however, no need to store your rain gear or boots in your cabin—a mudroom adjacent to the ship’s Zodiac loading bay provides you with a locker for outdoor gear.

The generous desk space can handle camera equipment, your laptop, and peripherals. And Ethernet jacks are available for in-cabin Internet access.
