Cruise fares aboard Origin are set to include cabin accommodation, all meals and snacks, all beverages including open bar, Captain’s welcome and farewell party, guided shore excursions, cruise director, use of wetsuits, snorkeling equipment and sea kayaks, and transfers in the Islands between the airport and dock.
Four decks feature numerous social spaces, including a fitness center, spa and top-level sundeck with bar and lounge seating. The Darwin Deck is home to 10 cabins, accommodating double, triple and single occupancy, as well as an outdoor Jacuzzi and library.
