Safari Spirit Entertainment
The evening's entertainment could be a spin in the Zodiac to see a seal colony or a lecture on birds given by the expedition leader. A video library supplies movies for in-cabin viewing.
Safari Spirit Public Rooms
The Main Deck houses most public rooms as well as the bridge. The bridge itself is nearly always open and is the popular place to be during wildlife sightings. The deck's aft salon resembles a comfy living room, especially at cocktail hour when the chef presents irresistible hors d'oeuvres and the wooden hutch is turned into a help-yourself bar. Passengers sink into a long, curved sofa and two overstuffed armchairs for drinks and lectures on Alaska's flora and fauna given by the expedition leader. Videos, both educational clips and movies, air on the salon's 50-inch TV.

Double doors off the salon lead to the aft deck where alfresco dinning occasionally takes place. Smokers frequent this area as smoking is only permitted outdoors. A tight, circular staircase winds from here up one deck to an aft, open-air whirlpool spa, two cabins and a small, forward-facing observation lounge stocked with books on Alaska. There are also interior stairs to this deck.

The uppermost Observation Deck, reached by aft stairs, is entirely open, great for 360-degree viewing, and stores four, two-person sea kayaks.
Safari Spirit Spa & Fitness
Exercise comes in a natural form, not via machine. Hiking in the woods, kayaking around pristine coves and climbing into the Zodiac all burn calories. For relaxation, nothing beats soaking in the Jacuzzi and watching the wilderness pass by.
