Roald Amundsen

Communal Areas

Of the stunning design throughout one of the most impressive features is the two-level indoor/outdoor observation deck, where you'll be sure to collect many memories watching wildlife, admiring the views, and enjoying good company.

The science centre is another highlight, equipped with state of the art technology and gadgets provided to ensure the deepest understanding for the areas you're visiting. There are lecture spaces, a library, and speciality areas for workshops in photography, biology and more. When you can pull yourself away from the discoveries to be made on deck and in the science centre, relax in the explorer lounge, the gym and wellness centre, a hot tub, or the infinity pool.
