Overview

The ship also features quiet nooks, like a library and the Sanctuary (an adults-only area which requires an extra fee).

Past cruisers were satisfied with the ship's relaxing atmosphere, describing public areas as pleasant and rarely overcrowded.

For specialty dining, guests can choose between Italian at Sabatini's, seafood at the Crab Shack, burgers at The Salty Dog Gastropub and more.
