Make your way up to the upper deck and you'll find 3 twin cabins and a lovely double bed Junior suite. All cabins are air-conditioned with en-suite bathrooms.
Inside the Ghazala Explorer is bright and airy with a modern decor. The saloon and dining area are very spacious and a natural place to hang out between dives. If sitting inside is not your style then there is a bar area with music on the upper deck, and if you head further up to the top deck you find enough seating and tables for outdoor lunches and dinners. At the back end of the top deck there are sun loungers and beanbags.
