Outside spaces

on Spirit of Discovery

Not only is Spirit of Discovery bright and spacious with world-class interiors, she also has the best sea views and outside spaces you could ever hope for.

The Terrace


This elegant ‘secret’ garden area is the perfect setting to enjoy the fresh air any time of the day. Expect it to be especially inviting as you sail away, when you can watch the sun set into the ocean while sipping a cocktail.

The Terrace also offers easy access to Spirit of Discovery’s full-length wraparound promenade. This encircles the ship and offers the chance to enjoy walks in the sea air, relax on the soft loungers and chairs, and simply let the world pass beautifully by.

Did you know? Stroll four times around the promenade and you’ll walk a mile – so you don’t just have to use our wellbeing services to keep fit and healthy on your cruise.

The Lido


In the centre of the Lido deck, you’ll find Spirit of Discovery’s beautiful main swimming pool and outdoor area, designed with an art deco flair. The Lido has sun loungers and deck games, while you can order drinks, traditional fish and chips, burger or hot dogs all free of charge from the neighbouring Grill – one of the many on board restaurants.

The Lido is perfect for swimming, relaxing in the sunshine, and enjoying waiter-served drinks. What better way to spend a day at sea? The area also offers self-serve ice cream station, offering an irresistible taste of the British seaside.

The Fairway

The Fairway

It’s another of the ship’s special and quirky features: a virtual golf course at sea. It’s a space with plenty of room to practice your swing. Whether you want to play on your own, or join in with a tournament, this state-of-the-art digital simulator allows you to try some of the world’s most famous courses. It’s a sporting experience that’s certainly ‘above par’.

Nearby you’ll find another set of games that are altogether more traditional: shuffleboard and deck quoits. These hark back to the bygone age of cruising, and are a welcome addition to Spirit of Discovery’s line-up of outdoor activities.

The Courts

The Courts

Spirit of Discovery offers even more ways to keep fit and socialise. At the very top of the ship on the Observation deck, you’ll find a full-size sports court. It’s perfect if you want to play basketball and shoot a few hoops.

The area behind this on Spirit of Discovery also offers the best panoramic views, uninterrupted from across the top of the ship.
