A ship packed with potential favourites: embark on a culinary journey of discovery in the seven gourmet restaurants. Pamper your body and soul in the 1,000 m2 (10,794 ft2) OCEAN SPA and fitness area. Relax on the comfortable daybeds by the pool, or create sophisticated dishes in the EUROPA 2 Culinary School under the guidance of the executive chefs. The theatre with its wide range of shows, or your own suite with a private veranda and ocean view – which spot is your favourite? On this cruise, you don’t need to decide, because there’ll be plenty of time to enjoy them all.
