It’s not just the ship that’s new. On Spirit of Discovery, you can also try our brand new service, Explore Ashore.

These cover a range of interests from local history, nature and walking to private music concerts and live cooking with local chefs and are available for an extra cost, they can be pre booked or booked on board.
