For those who are expecting a quiet cruise filled with early nights and not much activity in the bars and lounges, you may find yourself quite surprised as the ‘Pulse Nightclub’ is often pumping with tunes from across the decades encouraging passengers to fill the dance floor to work off the delectable food they have indulged in.
If you’re after a more classic-style of dancing then ‘Palm Court’ would be right up your alley with the Crystal Sextet playing music throughout the evening and Ambassador Hosts available to whisk eager ladies across the dance floor.
A quiet drink in the ‘Avenue Saloon’ is perfectly complemented by a tinkling of the ivories, transporting you to a sophisticated English pub where the bartenders always remember your name…and your favourite beverage.
From creating a cocktail designed especially to titillate you, to suggesting some old favourites, the bartenders throughout the ship make it their mission to ensure they go the extra mile with personalising your onboard beverage experience.
You may even receive the recipe for your cocktail of preference presented to you on the final night of your cruise as a parting gift!
The ‘Connoisseur Club’ is conveniently located on Tiffany Deck aft near the ‘Pulse Nightclub’ and ‘Avenue Saloon’ and offers an intimate environment for those passengers wanting to indulge in a cigar from the ship’s extensive selection whilst reading a book or even catching the latest in sports or news on the big screen television.
Dark woods and plush leather chairs add a warmth to the room that is peppered with palms and a louvered view of the ocean.
One deck down and you reach the heart of the ship, which, amid hosting reception and the shore excursions desk, is also the location for a variety of musical performances every evening.
The sound of music peppers the two-deck atrium nightly invoking a feeling of nostalgia for passengers after a relaxing beverage or a spot of retail therapy.
Whilst there is the option to hire a DVD from the ‘Library’, the ‘Hollywood Theatre’ plays an array of new and old release movies twice a night with session times and selections advertised in the ‘Reflections’ newsletter delivered to your stateroom daily.
