Deck 2 (aft section) is accessible by 1 elevator and via stairs. Here is the ship’s built-in Marina platform for (complimentary) water sports practice. The list of sports includes snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, swimming. Guests are allowed to use the Marina during the so called “Marina Day”. This is a day when the ship is anchored (near shore) or moored (docked in ports of call).
Marina Deck is also the starting point for the Seabourn cruise line’s new “Ventures by Seabourn” shore excursions set. The new series offers kayak and Zodiac excursions, launched directly from the Encore ship’s fold-out marina platform. Tour guides on these excursions are renown lecturers, wildlife researchers, adventure travel professionals, cruise expedition experts. The new “Ventures by Seabourn” shore excursions are available in select ports of call, and in destinations like Northern Europe (inland waterways, Norwegian Fjords, North Cape), Antarctica, Iceland.
