On board Jahan

Jahan's public spaces include a covered, open-air observatory, open bow and small pool on the top deck.

While the ship is upscale, life aboard is casual in every regard, and there is no need for formal clothing. And you’ll find shipboard services like laundry make packing and traveling more convenient.

Breakfast and lunch are generally buffet service, while the dining room accommodates all guests at a single seating.

During lunch and dinner your expedition leader, cultural experts and any guest speakers aboard will join you for meals, and during breakfast they often sit together to plan the logistics of the exciting day ahead.

Cabins

Every cabin is air-conditioned with a thermostat. Cabins feature a mix of twin- and queen-size beds; mention your preference at booking. In every room you’ll find modern, stylish facilities, including a minibar with refrigerator. Soft-hued woods and colonial-style furnishings offer an ageless feel, a time that harks back to the golden age of ship travel.

Bedding is luxurious cotton, and when you return from exploring you’ll find an attentive hotel staff has made up your room. Each cabin bathroom is stocked with shampoo, shower gel and lotion. Hair dryers are also available. If you would like your suitcase to be stored for you, simply let one of the hotel staff know.
