If you’re planning to spend the day on board, you’ll find plenty to do whether you’re on one of our Star-Ships or luxury yachts. Take in the vistas on one of the alfresco viewing decks, take a dip in the pool (which you’ll find on board all  vessels), or head to the Wellness Centre to keep up with your fitness in the gym or indulge in a luxury treatment in the spa^. In the evenings, you’ll enjoy the night’s entertainment, often featuring local performances.

You’ll feel truly looked after by the crew during your cruise. Relax in one of our on board lounges as you’re handed a delicious drink or catch up with new-found friends in a quiet corner.
