    PUBLIC AREAS

    The World Explorer benefits from spacious and finely decorated public areas, the majority of which are conveniently located on Deck 4. The Explorer Lounge is the perfect venue to socialise with fellow travellers over an after dinner drink whist the Observatory Lounge and Bar benefits from panoramic windows allowing you to enjoy magnificent views. There is also a small cigar lounge, casino and shop on board. The onboard spa area features a sauna, gym, small pool and two whirlpools on deck with comfortable loungers and a pool bar. There is also a running track on the outer deck. The theatre which can comfortably accommodate all passengers is where our Guest Speakers will host their informative talks. The onboard restaurant benefits from large windows and in addition there is a small Lido Café (weather dependent). A lift serves all decks on board.

    QUESTIONNAIRE

    Your comments are important to us therefore, before your cruise ends, you will receive a questionnaire. We are always looking for ways to improve our holidays and in order to do this we request feedback from our guests. Kindly hand your completed questionnaire to your Cruise Director.

    RECEPTION

    Reception is open throughout the day and located on Deck 4.

    SAFE

    Although there is a safe in your cabin, we recommend that you leave all extra valuables at home, and bring with you only what you consider necessary. Neither the ship, nor Noble Caledonia, are responsible for any valuables left in the cabins.

    SHORE EXCURSIONS

    Please be on time for the organised excursions, so as not to keep others waiting. If you do not wish to participate in an excursion, please let your Cruise Director know.

    SMOKING

    Smoking is only permitted on the designated outer decks and in the Cigar Lounge. Please make use only of the ash trays provided. All interior areas such as restaurant, salons, cabins, corridors etc. are non-smoking areas.

    TELEVISION

    Your cabin features a television that operates using a satellite system, meaning that television reception is available for the majority of the trip however on certain occasions it may not be possible to receive a TV signal. The onboard TV system will offer you ‘on demand’ films and documentaries on the topic of your destination.

    WATER

    We recommend that you do not drink the tap water in your cabin.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    Please note that at the time of print, the World Explorer is still under construction so all the images are computer animated representations. The ship’s architects have provided an impression of the colour and material combinations as realistic as possible for the illustrations.
