About This Ship
Cabins: Accommodations in all categories have adequate storage space in closets and drawers and feature a vanity desk, flat-screen TV, safe, hair dryer, refrigerator, tea/coffeemaker, and telephone, but standard cabins are slightly smaller than the corresponding categories on the HAL Vista class, the platform on which this ship was based. Outside cabins with balconies and some of the larger standard inside and nonbalcony outside cabins also have a small seating area with a sofa. A refit in 2008 added additional aft-facing balcony staterooms.
Decor: All cabins and suites are tastefully decorated in light woods and pastel tones. Although the colors throughout tend to be somewhat bland, they are soothing. The balconies in suites and minisuites are generous enough in size to have tables and chairs suitable for dining.
Suites: Suites have larger seating areas and balconies than regular outside cabins. In addition, they have a trouser press, ironing board, DVD player, whirlpool tub, and a separate shower. Full-suite bathrooms feature dual sinks and a dressing area, which are nice touches. Suite occupants enjoy the added services of a butler.
Accessibility: Thirty cabins are wheelchair accessible.
