WELCOME ABOARD THE ms River Explorer

Launched in 2001 and refurbished in 2003, the privately chartered ms River Explorer is nearly identical to her sister ship, the River Odyssey. Just a bit larger then the ms River Navigator, the Explorer features more Category AA suites and quiet reading rooms, as well as all the amenities and services Vantage passengers expect.
