Four Seasons junkies should ready their sea legs and check out the Four Seasons Explorer - a three-deck, luxury boat with a 22-guest capacity based in the Maldives. 

The vessel can take travelers on three-, four- or seven-night cruises, or private, customized charters.

We hear she has been refurbished for 2013. On board accommodations range from 10 Staterooms (at 215 square feet) to the Explorer Suite, which is 484 square feet.

Nice touch: The Explorer Suite is best for VIPs since it is complete with a wall of windows and its own private deck. The boat also has a dive deck and two sun decks plus a restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, two bars, a lounge and library.

Spa enthusiasts, fear not. An onboard Spa therapist offers Asian-inspired therapies from a private treatment area on the upper deck.
