An extraordinary hotel staff, at your service
Our warm and attentive cruise staff will look after your every wish and create a friendly, informal atmosphere aboard. Most have worked for us for years, if not decades, and are a familiar, welcoming sight for returning guests.
Each cabin has an Ethernet jack and cord to connect your laptop. Wireless Internet is available in the observation lounge, library, chart room, bistro and lounge. An Internet café is available near the mudroom, and a very limited number of laptops can be rented from reception for $10 a day. Satellite internet access costs between $.40 and $.75 per minute depending on the number of minutes purchased. A satellite phone is available for phone calls at additional charge, and an Iridium satellite phone is also available for emergency use. Stay in touch with the news back home through a condensed version of The New York Times, printed aboard daily free of charge. Copies are available in the library, the lounge and at reception.
Photo kiosk for photographers
An iMac station is available in the ship’s internet café for sorting and transferring your photos. It’s equipped with a digital media reader and USB outlets. Bring along an external hard drive or USB drive (or several) to store and back up your photos. Use of the photo kiosk is complimentary, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
For an additional charge, our ship’s professional laundry staff will handle personal laundry and pressing. Laundry can be picked up at your cabin and same day service is available. Dry cleaning is not possible on board.
The chart room offers 24-hour beverage service, including coffee, a variety of teas, and sodas. Filtered water and ice stations are located throughout the vessel and reusable water bottles are provided in each cabin.
A licensed U.S. doctor is aboard and available 24-hours a day free of charge.
