A new travel experience

The new ship will provide a better travel experience and set a new standard for comfort. Shopping and service offerings on board will be expanded and improved, with large stores and three great eateries with a rich variety of food and drink.

On deck there will be a greenhouse powered by residual heat. Here, among other things, herbs and vegetables will be grown and served on board. Guests with a love of the sea will probably seek out the additional “bridge” wing at the stern, built for passengers. A glass floor will allow guests to follow the waves and the ship's rhythm with a direct view to the open sea.
