If you choose to dine in the suite in a few minutes you can enjoy the menu you choose. The minibar is not lacking anything, but involves a danger: it is a strong temptation to exhaust the stock of drinks while watching the sea from the balcony of the cabin.
The spa area is very comforting. An elevator will deposit in the spa and there begins the journey: Bali massage, reflexology, cranial fossils of the Himalayan salts with aromatic candles and hydrotherapy. The offer includes facials, aromatherapy spa suite and classes with a yoga teacher. Bonus track: a relaxation room with sea view. The risk: You can spend long hours and losing track of time.

Nothing could be further from reality to think that after dinner and drinks the night is over. They are simply a starting point. Teens can go dancing in the disco exclusive to them, while older Disco Liquid will find a place to dawn awake.
Passengers who want less running and more adrenaline, have in the Casino delle Palme place on the cruise. Black jack, poker and roulette, with chips from one euro, and players around the world.
For the choice may be unremitting joint, nightclub and casino, and see how far his luck. May even venture to be lucky in the game and love.
Theatre and sports. In every sunset is repeated a ritual theater functions L “Avanguardia, with two shows daily. Variety, humor and juggling are part of a proposal that has more than 20 artists on stage and many costume changes that would be the envy of any company in Argentina.
The theater has a capacity of 1603 people and the shows are never repeated in the duration of the voyage. Sports enthusiasts may continue with their routines. In addition to gym teachers, find the Arena Sports Centre tennis, squash, volleyball, minigolf and a jogging track.
A virtual world. Virtual Word is amazingly. Next-generation games will be the snack to enjoy higher: a Formula 1 simulator will make you believe size is for long the Monaco Grand Prix and that you are, in fact, Schumacher and Alonso. A few meters from Formula 1 is the entrance to the cinema 4 D. Here there will be pilot but will be in the skin of the protagonist, feel the sensation of flying, a sudden decrease or an unexpected turn. Everything from his chair.
