Ship Highlights

Below is a sampling of some of the exciting features found aboard this ship.

Observation Lounge

This spacious bar area, featuring large picture windows and about three dozen small tables with comfortable chairs, is an excellent place to relax over a drink and enjoy conversation or a book while you watch the scenery, or meet up with friends before and after meals. It is located on the same level as the Suites. The 24-hour coffee station is adjacent to the Observation Lounge, so you can enjoy a delicious coffee drink or get something from the Lounge Bar.

Reception Lobby

The atrium is a large, airy space with a grand staircase to the upper decks and direct access to the restaurant. The middle deck lobby is where you enter the ship, and serves as your information center throughout your voyage. Your Program Director’s desk is located here, so that you can easily ask questions or discuss the day’s activities. There is a public address system to announce events; there are also restrooms and an onboard boutique.

Restaurant

Located on the Main Deck, the restaurant is where all meals are served during your cruise. It features panoramic windows, so you will not miss any of the scenery while you are dining. It seats all guests at tables which accommodate 8 guests each. The dining room is open seating, so you are free to sit where you like—a great way to make new friends. The atmosphere is casual but elegant, with high-quality table linens, china, cutlery and glassware.
