Discover more when you step ashore with us. We offer exciting shore excursions that give you the option to fuel your adventurous spirit or relax and soak up the local culture. Experience everything from lazy breaks on sun-drenched beaches, or wine tasting at idyllic vineyards, to thrilling off-road safaris and guided tours of bustling cities.

Delicious dining

Delicious dining

Each of our ships offers a diverse choice of dining options, from informal buffets and snack bars to black tie Gala Evenings with six-course menus developed by Marco Pierre White. For an extra special experience, add an indulgent bottle of wine to dinner or treat yourself to a meal in one of our Select Dining restaurants such as Atul Kochhar’s Sindhu.

Enthralling entertainment

Enthralling entertainment

Take your pick from the latest movie screenings, glittering theatre shows, live music and ribtickling comedy.

Dress to the nines for a Gala Evening to remember and after dinner, try your luck in the casino or dance the night away.

For a holiday treat, splash out in the ship’s boutiques, art gallery and bars.

Reviving relaxation

Reviving relaxation

For some, relaxation is swimming a few lengths in the pool or running a few laps on deck. For others, it’s sinking into a whirlpool spa or stretching out on a sun lounger and diving into a good book.

Choose to do as much or as little as you like and, if the mood takes you, why not splash out on a soothing spa treatment or an energising fitness class?
