The ship offers a fantastic wealth of stunning bars and ambient lounges. Lazing back at Anderson’s in front of the traditional fireplace, you'll simply melt into the cosy atmosphere of this laid-back bar. Alternatively, if you're in the mood for celebrating, Charlie’s elegant champagne bar is the place to go, with its sparkling design and glitzy colour. Plenty of other venues can still quench your thirst too- from Masquerade for a dance to the Riviera for cocktails, you're never short of options.

Carmen's is the central hub for live entertainment onboard. Here, the show lounge will provide you with countless memories of evening comedy or sophisticated cabaret. After the shows are over, the stage is cleared for a dance floor to let you dance the rest of the night away. The Curzon Theatre on the Promenade Deck has the feel of a traditional, Shakespearian theatre, yet behind the scenes is all the latest technology bringing you the very best West End-style performances you've seen.

Recreation

With three top-class shops, a cinema showing all the latest Hollywood flicks and first-rate service all round, you have one of the most spectacular cruises imaginable. For those wanting to seek out a little bit of peace and quiet, the card room, writing room and library are also great places from which to enjoy the cruise.

Out on the deck and cruisers will be pleased to find two outdoor pools and several Jacuzzis, as well as an indoor pool with a retractable dome roof, meaning guests can enjoy a dip whatever the weather.


Spa and Fitness

Aside from all that partying, you might also care for really letting your hair down and trying the superb Oasis Spa on the Lido Deck, which allows you to detox and rejuvenate in complete peace and quiet. In addition, guests can pop into the Hair & Beauty salon to experience a complete makeover that will leave them feeling brand new and ready to take on the world.

Sports-wise, there are courts for golf, tennis, football and whatever else takes your fancy. There’s also a fully equipped gym including a spacious aerobics room and personal trainers.

Dress Code
