The Spirit of Discovery is ideal for those who love nature, soft adventure, casual cruising, and American history. The passengers on our cruise shared a love of learning and the out of doors. Following the river trails of the Lewis & Clark expedition was a marvelous experience for us all, and the expedition leaders and guest speakers were excellent.
The small ship cabins are small, but adequate, and have a large window. The ship has an excellent observation lounge on deck 2, with plenty of windows to watch the spectacular scenery slide by. There is one dining room on the first deck, with open seating. Passengers spend a lot of time outside on the sundeck on deck 3 or on the forecastle in front of the observation lounge.
