Inside Stateroom - Beautifully re-designed with a modern flair, these delightful private retreats boast 160 square feet of luxury. Highlights include a comfortable seating area, vanity desk, refrigerated mini-bar and plenty of storage. The ingenious use of space is complemented by the re-inspired decor.

Enjoy a comfortable seating area with a sofa on which to stretch out, as well as a vanity desk, breakfast table and refrigerated mini-bar.

Veranda Stateroom - Custom-crafted furnishings, exotic stone finishes, supple upholstered headboards and chic lighting are just a few of the enhancements within these 216-square-foot staterooms that also boast our most popular luxury – a private teak veranda for watching the ever-changing panoramas. Conveniences within each stateroom include a vanity desk, refrigerated mini-bar, breakfast table and spacious seating area.

Penthouse Suite - Adorned with sumptuous designer fabrics and furnishings in serene shades of the sea and sky. Spacious enough for private in-suite dining, the living area features a refrigerated mini-bar and vanity desk, and the sleekly transformed bathroom features luxury stone finishes and a shower.

Vista Suite - Named for their sweeping views over the ship’s bow, the four Vista Suites feature a calming palette echoing the serene seas and expansive skies. Each sprawls over 786 square feet and offers every imaginable comfort, including a second bathroom for guests as well as a master bathroom finished in onyx, Carrara marble and granite with a luxurious shower. Relax on your teak veranda or watch a movie on your customised entertainment system.
