Behind the curtains in almost all of the ship’s suites are floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors, revealing fresh air and the most remarkable European scenery. With increased floor space, all-weather use and unimpeded views, these balconies represent a true innovation in suite design. All suites contain a deluxe queen-size bed, ensuite bathroom, sitting area, a secure safe, a modern infotainment system, a spacious cupboard and personallycontrolled air-conditioning. Tranquil cruising is guaranteed, as no suite is located directly over the ship’s engine.

To complete your dinner perfectly, complimentary wines are served, sourced daily from various local European vineyards. After dinner each night, different performers will come aboard to enchant, delight and give you an insight into the traditions of the region you’re sailing through. It is the perfect complement to each day’s discovery. There’s a range of included small-group shore excursions, giving you the opportunity to see Europe in a truly personal way. Upon disembarking, the tour group will separate into smaller groups with local guides who can shape the excursion according to your expectations and interests.
