The cabins are beautifully and lovingly decorated, but they are not hotel rooms. They are authentic, small boat cabins. This means the beds are non-standard sizes but are very comfortable. There are door sills to step over to enter each cabin. This does mean that you need to step aboard without thinking of cabins as hotel rooms, but rather as cozy cabins on a real heritage ship.

Cabins on the Swell are between 57 square feet and 120 square feet. However, you also will be on deck, on shore, in the salon (lounge/dining), or in the wheelhouse for much of the day — spaces that are also uncrowded, elegant and welcoming.
