The sheer scope of the ship can take the breath away. She is more reminiscent of a floating city: spread over 14 passenger decks, and catering for more than 3,500 guests, it can be easy to forget that she is, ultimately, a ship. Her size is reflected by her onboard amenities: guests will find five restaurants waiting for them, alongside two self-service buffets, and 21 bars. Entertainment is an equally important part of life on the ship, as she houses four swimming pools, dedicated children’s areas, and even a F1 simulator. Younger passengers and families will no doubt find themselves right at home aboard.
