Each cruise features a lecture program led by celebrated guest speakers, whose informative talks are sure to enlighten and entertain as they bring to life the wonderful sites you will visit. Our on board library is beautifully appointed and houses a well-stocked collection handpicked by the experts at the Oxford-based bookseller, Blackwell’s. Newspapers are received daily via satellite and current editions are available in the library.
Relax on the sweeping sun deck and cool off in the outdoor pool. Revive yourself with the wonderful therapies and treatments available at the Athena Health Spa, or pamper yourself at the beauty salon and hairdressers. The full fitness studio is well-equipped and even offers early morning yoga sessions.
There is something magical about the tradition of taking tea at sea. You’ll find a selection of freshly-prepared sandwiches, cakes and scones – with a cup of Darjeeling and panoramic views to enjoy, it’s a winning combination. We also serve light snacks at 10.30pm for those passengers enjoying a late night discussion about the day’s sightseeing.
Before dinner, enjoy a drink in the Charleston Lounge or watch the sun go down from The Terrace. After dinner, perhaps take in a lecture about the places you’ll visit the next day, or enjoy the string trio, pianist and vocalist performance. In some ports we organise local entertainment which is always well-received.
For keeping in touch with friends and family, our internet room is well-located on Belvedere Deck next to Reception. Wifi is also available in designated areas.
Fluent in English and always ready with a smile, our Filipino crew will win your heart. Your cabin steward will refresh your stateroom before you even realize you need it, and your waiter will remember whether you take tea or coffee. They, and the rest of our officers and crew, are dedicated to making your cruise vacation a delightful experience.
