Delicious Dining

Delicious dishes served in our Vasco restaurant

Delicious food and drink is a big part of what makes cruising such a lovely way to travel. We are proud of our team of talented chefs on board who love delivering not just wonderful, fresh, high quality food, but also exciting our guests with new tastes and treats and tasting experiences. This is why, as well as our main restaurants, we also have speciality food and drink restaurants and venues on board.

Spa & Beauty Treatments

Each of our ships has a relaxing spa where you can enjoy everything from soothing massages, manicures and pedicures to hair treatments and styling in our salons. This is also where you will find our well-equipped Fitness Centre which has a spectacular view of the ocean. Join us for yoga, stretch and personal training sessions.
On our new ships, Bolette and Borealis, you can also book our private Thermal Suite for- an extra special treat.

Learn something new

Art Studio on board Bolette

Lots of our guests like to use their sea days or longer voyages to try their hand at something they haven't done before, so we host sociable activities like learning to play the ukulele or singing in a choir. Or you can refine your craft skills, practice your watercolours and learn some photography skills in our new Olsen Art Studio.

Fun and Games, Quizzes and puzzles

We know many guests look forward to fun and games on board. Our Entertainment Hosts will organise traditional deck-game tournaments like quoits, skittles, pickleball, deck tennis and shuffleboard. We love a good quiz and it is a great opportunity to be sociable and meet fellow guests

Travels to Come

Bolette in Kotor, Montenegro

Unlike other cruise companies who sail the same routes year after year, we are constantly researching and handcrafting new itineraries. On every cruise we run a programme designed to inspire travel, where you can find out about the development of our new itineraries.
Don't worry, these are not sales talks or "exit through the gift shop" ruses - just an opportunity for travel enthusiasts to daydream about what is yet to come.

Gym & Fitness

If you enjoy working out, our fully equipped Fitness Centre across our fleet have a wide selection of running machines, cross trainers, bikes and weights available.
We also run a variety of complimentaryclasses which are suitable for everyone from beginners to regular gym-goers. Join us for a relaxing sunrise pilates or yoga class out on deck, or an invigorating Walk a Mile session, but also available are spin, fitball or abdominals sessions.
