The Vintages bar and other public areas boast floor to ceiling windows allowing a bright, light environment and wonderful views. Staterooms are fresh and modern, and it's possible to stay in a Panoramic Stateroom, which enables guests to have a fantastic view of the surrounding seas in their own room.
