A private balcony for every guest

It’s a real ‘wow’. Every cabin has a balcony, giving each guest their own private space, inside and out. And with an average floor plan of 245 square feet as standard, there’s quite a lot of space to enjoy.

More room to relax

This hotel offers plenty of space for relaxation, from two pools, a luxury Spa and a theatre, to the delights of a secret Terrace. It’s all been thoughtfully designed with a single aim: to help you find the spaces and places that will help you unwind, as only you want to.

Packed with culinary choice

Our widest-ever selection of restaurants

Spirit of Discovery boasts an array of restaurants from the grand dining room, to Oriental and seafood eateries too. With cuisines from all over the world, they are a match for London's best restaurants. Best of all, you can eat whenever and where you like.

A destination in itself

Despite having all the high-end features you’d expect from a large cruise ship, Spirit of Discovery is in fact a smaller craft, keeping the levels of service high. That said, she’s still packed with a stunning array of features.
