Spirit of Discovery

There’s now less than a year until Spirit of Discovery takes to the oceans. Sleek and sophisticated, our new boutique ship combines a gloriously open, airy feel with a very special feature: every cabin has its own balcony. Luxurious throughout, from her sumptuous spa and theatre, to her choice of speciality restaurants and full wraparound promenade deck.

Unique Features

It’s one of the ship’s most distinctive features: every cabin has a balcony, giving you your own outside space. So whether you’re in the heart of a stunning Norwegian fjord or sailing around the sunny Mediterranean, you have your own place to relax, enjoy the views and fresh air, and watch the sun set as you head to another incredible destination.



Designated areas only
Not available

One of the amazing features of the new ship is that it's been designed so that all cabins will have a balcony - there are no 'inside' passenger cabins anywhere on the ship.

At the heart of every luxury boutique hotel are the bedrooms: your own haven to relax and re-energise while enjoying your own personal space. And with an average floor plan of 215 square feet as standard, there’s quite a bit of space to enjoy when you cruise on Spirit of Discovery.

Taking their design cues from some of London’s top hotels, cabins aboard Spirit of Discovery have been styled to showcase the best in contemporary, yet classic British design.


From the Grand Dining Room to Verandah and Grill with it’s in and outdoor spaces, Spirit of Discovery offers our biggest-ever choice of dining venues, including three new speciality restaurants. And your reservation is waiting at every one, free of charge.


When it comes to entertainment and activities, Spirit of Discovery is all about choice. Whether you decide to pamper yourself in the Spa, get active, spend an evening at the on-board theatre, or relax in the classic Britannia Lounge, you’ll be spoilt for choice, day and night.
