She will be the largest ship in the cruise line’s fleet at 125 metres long and 12,100gt, and will feature a 4.6-megawatt diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system with selective catalytic reduction and a Polar Code 6 ice-strengthened hull that is Safe Return to Port certified.
SH Diana will have capacity for 192 guests in 96 staterooms and suites, the majority of which will feature balconies. Onboard amenities will include a swimming pool, spa, panoramic sauna, gym, library, expedition laboratory and an observation lounge for expedition leaders and experts from a range of disciplines. Dining will be offered in the panoramic restaurant, club lounge and pool bar.
The vessel will also have new features that are not found onboard her predecessors, including a dedicated multifunctional room located next to the Observation Lounge, a private dining room for special occasions, more suites and two tenders.
SH Diana will launch in early 2023, offering cruises in the Mediterranean.
