Passenger cabins on the Wilderness Adventurer serve their purpose well – mainly a place to sleep, wash up, and store your things. They aren’t big, but they also aren’t intended to be where passengers spend their cruise. The expedition vessel mainly travels at night and during the day anchors or docks somewhere while the passengers hike, kayak, or explore. During the times passengers spend on board in the daytime activities like meals, cocktail hour, or presentations of one sort or another occupy some time and there’s plenty of places to sit in the public areas of the ship if it does happen to travel during the day. It also has a hot tub on the top deck.
Wilderness Discoverer has three cabin options, all of which have windows with views to the outside. The Navigator cabins on the main deck cost the least and have about 77 square feet of space. Trailblazer and Pathfinder cabins on the observation deck have about 90 square feet each. The main difference between the two is inside entry on the Trailblazer cabins and outside entry on the Pathfinder.
The rooms have a lot of storage space. The beds have quite a bit of open space underneath for luggage. Each room has a large set of wooden shelves for storage and a cabinet next to the bed. Rooms with inside entry also have handy coat hooks and space for boots in the hallway just outside the cabin door.
All rooms come equipped with binoculars and aluminum water bottles for the passenger’s use during their adventures throughout the cruise. They also have water glasses and a hair dryer.
The outside entry rooms just got remodeled this year with all-new wood and carpeting.
Bathrooms are very utilitarian, sometimes called the shoilet. Sinks sit outside the bathroom door. Inside has just space for the toilet with the area in front of it doubling as the shower. The sink has a soap dispenser on the countertop and the shower has shampoo and bath gel in a dispenser hanging on the wall.
Each room has a flatscreen TV hanging over the bed. One channel displays the menus and activities of the day, one has GPS mapping so you can see where the ship is, and one plays daily wildlife movies. There’s also a bowcam channel to show what is under the sea, but the bowcam wasn’t working on our trip. One of the crew said it had met an iceberg and gotten knocked out of place to where it just shows the inside of its housing, but was slated for repair after our cruise.
