There are four distinctive restaurants offering a variety of culinary choices, or you can opt to dine ashore in some of the most exciting cities in the world or engage the services of one of the ship’s personal chefs, who will prepare a meal to your specifications in your private kitchen.

Apartments are available for rental and rates and vary depending on the size- Expansive apartments are an intelligent choice for families and friends travelling together.
