A welcoming haven after an exhilarating day exploring
All accommodations are outside, and most cabins feature oversized picture windows that connect you with the passing views. Double occupancy cabins come in a variety of configurations, including two single beds, two beds that can be converted to a queen-sized bed, and queen-sized beds.
Soothingly decorated in elegant tones, National Geographic Orion’s spacious cabins offer a large desk, with ample drawer space. All offer a comfortable armchair or sofa for reading. Cabins designed for solo travelers are similar to double occupancy cabins, and feature the same amenities.
Individual climate control is available in every cabin. Reading lamps above the bed allow for a focused beam of light to ensure your neighbor sleeps undisturbed.
Orion’s balcony cabins feature a “French Balcony” with a large sliding glass door opening to a Juliette Balcony that provides easy access to exceptional views. Her balcony and owner’s suites are radiant spaces with expansive windows or glass sliding doors, and offer a living room-style area appointed with a couch that converts to accommodate a third person.
Each cabin has a flat panel TV with several channels: for movies; for documentaries; and one for displaying the ship’s electronic chart system with the ship’s current position. Other channels allow you to view presentations from the comfort of your cabin, or to follow progress on the crow’s nest camera. A public address system keeps you alerted to the daily activities, including any wildlife sightings such as an early morning whale or dolphin sighting.
Bathrooms are also generously sized with a roomy glass-walled shower stall. They are stocked with environmentally-inspired bath products and shower gel, cotton towels, and cozy white robes. Beds are cossetted in duvets and crisp cotton sheeting.
Designed with expeditions in mind
There is ample room to hang your parkas and plenty of drawers and hooks for the amount of clothing you might need on a longer voyage. In addition, there is abundant under-bed storage space for luggage. The generous desk space can handle camera equipment, your laptop, and peripherals. In addition to a personal safe, hairdryer, and a mini-refrigerator, you’ll find Ethernet jacks are available for in-cabin Internet access.
