mv Discovery - Old

Cruise in classic comfort aboard mv Discovery and travel with some distinguished guest speakers who will add rare insight to the places we visit. Built for global cruising, Discovery is large enough to sail the world''s great oceans, yet small enough to reach those less-frequented places. Behind her classic lines, the emphasis is on space, service and understated elegance with friendly, experienced European officers and attentive Filipino crew. mv Discovery offers an exciting range of cruises to explore the world''s great destinations. Among them are the Antarctic Peninsula, South America and introducing South Africa and the Indian Ocean to our 2008/09 roster of itineraries. Summers feature Scandinavia & Iceland, the Baltic Capitals, Mediterranean and Black Sea. This unique travel experience represents remarkable value for your money. Plan your voyage today!


From dawn till dusk your days are filled with opportunity. For rest and relaxation, you can follow a morning sightseeing trip with the tonic of an afternoon massage. Or spend an invigorating hour or two in the Health Centre following a program that suits your needs as well as your mood. The pace of life on board is what you make it. Unashamedly laid-back or surprisingly active. Its entirely up to you. So surf the Internet to catch up with friends or to check on your stocks and shares. Try your hand at some traditional deck games under the sun. Shuffle the decks in the Card Room, rattle some dice in the Games Room. Browse our Photo Gallery or the shops one deck down. Satisfy your thirst in our Explorer Bar or your curiosity in the Library next door.

  • 8 classic ocean liner decks. Spacious sunbathing areas with outside seating including teak steamer chairs.
  • 3 restaurants
  • Gymnasium Health and Beauty Centre: Unique indoor-outdoor twin deck spa. 2 Jacuzzis

Dining on board is always a special event and on Discovery you will experience new levels of gastronomic delight. From breakfast through to midnight snacks you will be impressed by the choice and quality of the superb food our chefs have prepared and by the friendly, attentive service of the stewards.


Full breakfast will be served in the Seven Continents Restaurant or "al fresco" on the Sun Deck. Seating basis is open. Continental breakfast is also available in your cabin.


Lunch is taken on an open sitting basis in the Seven Continents Restaurant or "al fresco" on the Sun Deck.


Dinner is served at two sittings in the Seven Continents Restaurant. The timings will depend on the day's program, but usually early sitting is approx 6.15pm and Main sitting is approx 8.15pm. Your preference should be indicated at time of booking, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, but cannot be guaranteed. Occasionally - for example, when we are in the Land of the Midnight Sun there will be the chance to dine "al fresco" on the Sun Deck.


The Yacht Club, situated forward on Sun Deck, offers a superb alternative dining venue with marvelous views on three sides. Specialty themed menus such as Italian, Oriental, Polynesian or Mexican will be served. The Yacht Club is "invitation only", and with seating for approximately 100 people, all passengers will receive an invitation to dine here at least once a week - reservation required.


We deliberately avoid much of the razzmatazz that is sometimes associated with cruising, but provide instead a low-key program of quality entertainment. In the evenings take in a show then dance to the ship's orchestra in the Carousel Lounge, relax over a quiet drink in the Explorer Bar, dance away the excess pounds in the Night Club! Alternatively, pit your wits against our quiz master or enjoy a feature film in the cinema.

During days at sea there will be a program of informative talks, visits to the Bridge, art classes, films and music recitals; you might prefer to select a book from the library and relax on deck, enjoy a board game, visit the gym or pamper yourself in the new health and beauty centre; you might prefer to do nothing but watch the world sail by. The choice is yours.


On all cruises there will be the opportunity to participate in an on-board program of bridge. There will be a series of lectures and organized competitions on all departures, under the supervision of an experienced bridge director, plus organized sessions of duplicate bridge every day.
