  • Restaurant - the ship restaurant is located astern on Deck 4 and seats 240 guests. Large windows enables you to enjoy both your meal and the view at the same time.
  • Cafe - the cafe serves small dishes, warm meals, snacks and drinks 24 hours a day.
  • Bar - the bar ahead on Deck 4 is the place where passengers often meet after dinner for a coffee or a drink. It there is dancing or live music on board, this is where you will find it.
