Below deck, accessed from the main deck foyer by way of an elegant stone-stepped spiral staircase to the lower foyer is the Guest Deck. Lending a sense of serenity to the already quiet space, a near life-sized Buddha statue from Cambodia stands sentinel, and crew discretely service the guests’ area by way of a secret, soundproof door in the paneling that leads to the crew quarters.
Ninkasi’s Guest Deck accommodates a further eight guests in four en-suite staterooms—two queens and two twins. All four staterooms are finished in limed oak and feature the same French Provence style elegance of the Master Suite. Each stateroom has been designed to provide maximum storage space and is equipped with a flat screen TV for private entertaining.
Far aft on this lower deck features a spacious lazarette turned gym with a transom door that lowers to form the swimming platform. At night, underwater floodlights illuminate the ocean, making this a great spot to watch for marine life attracted by the lights.
