Guests will experience a unique style of cruising aboard the M/V Discovery Palawan, a ship built in Gronigen Holland in 1972. It sailed the Caribbean through the years until it was rebuilt as a navigation training ship. Come 2006, it was refitted with a powerful engine and modern navigational equipment and was moved to the Philippines to serve as an adventure cruise ship. It underwent a major renovation in 2013 to become Discovery Palawan. The ship boasts of 20 comfortable rooms – with 16 standard rooms lined up in the lower deck and four upper deck rooms with personal climate control.
