Safari Quest Entertainment
Entertainment, like much that transpires aboard the yacht, tends to be impromptu -- an after dinner Zodiac trip for up-close black bear viewing or for watching a fiery sunset with Alaska's snow-capped peaks as a backdrop. If Mother Nature happens to take the night off, the expedition leader gives an informal lecture on birds or bears.
Safari Quest Public Rooms
Like most luxury yachts, the widow-wrapped Main Deck salon and adjacent bar serve as prime gathering spots -- at least until a sudden wildlife sighting calls everyone out on deck to observe. The spacious room is furnished with curving sofas upholstered in burgundy, several drink tables, shelves stocked with videos and a large-screen TV for viewing films. An amply supplied bar surrounded by cushioned bar stools occupies the forward corner, while aft doors lead to a covered stern deck.

Outdoor stairs lead up one deck to a small library and the bridge; two decks up to an open observation area complete with plastic lounge chairs, a Whirlpool spa and the vessel's eight kayaks. There is also an indoor, circular stairway connecting all decks except the upper, Observation Deck. Well-chosen artwork throughout reflects the yacht's destinations.
Safari Quest Spa & Fitness
Safari Quest has no onboard workout facilities, but there's certainly no lack of exercise with daily stops for walking tours, wilderness hikes or kayaking. The top deck, open-air Jacuzzi provides a soothing way to start or end an adventure-packed day.
