Explorer Dream Features


There is never a dull moment on Explorer Dream as the elegant ship has a line-up of world-class concerts, live music, and Broadway-style shows at the opulent Zodiac Theatre. You can work up a sweat running laps on the jogging track, playing a few rounds of your favourite sport at the SportsPlex, or pumping some iron at the gym.

If pampering is what you’re after, head to the spa, featuring both a salon and gentleman’s barber for anyone looking for a bit of self-care. Of course, like any modern cruise ship, you will find a pool area – the Parthenon Pool with Caesar’s Slide. For the little ones, your kids can make some new friends at the Little Dreamers Club or have a blast playing at The Zone or ESC Experience Lab.
