Alexandria

Choose a particular Club Dining seating and you’ll dine at the same time and table each night and enjoy the same company. It’s the way many a friendship has been made on board.

 

Raffles Court

A wonderful area to meet up with new friends for a mid-afternoon break or after dinner drink, the court offers lovely views of the atrium and its' 35-foot centre-piece sculpture. Comfortable sofas and chairs, in conjunction with soft lighting, create a relaxing ambience.

Sindhu

Enjoy a menu inspired by Atul Kochhar. His Soft Shell Crab and Squid Salad, in particular, is sure to be a favourite. The restaurant is located at the top of Arcadia on Sky Deck, adjacent to the central lifts. Here you will be welcomed by panoramic views, an informal atmosphere and contemporary décor.

The Beach House

Located in the buffet restaurant during the evening, The Beach House offers great ocean views to go along with a casual menu of grills and seafood. When the sun is shining, there’s also the opportunity to sit outside on the terrace.

Anderson's

The bar is named after Arthur Anderson, the founder of P&O, who is said to have had an amazing attention to detail. So we certainly believe he would have approved of the long bar, the ornate fireplace and the traditional artworks.

Afternoon Tea

Treat yourself to a classic English afternoon tea, served daily in the main restaurants. You can enjoy a selection of finger sandwiches, delicious cakes and of course the all-important scone topped with clotted cream and jam all served alongside a pot of tea or coffee.

Charlie's

An elegant baby grand sets the mood in this stylish Champagne bar, as tiny rock-crystal lenses on the ceiling create a glittering starry effect - the perfect complement to the Champagne sparkling in your glass.

The Glass House

This stylish, relaxed restaurant and bar offers an informal menu of steak and seafood. With wines selected by Olly Smith, find the perfect match for each course and drink in those sea views!

Raffles Bar

The name Raffles is synonymous with sophistication and elegance and the rich wood panelling, marble flooring and luxurious leather padded bar live up to the bar's name. A great place to enjoy a tempting tipple or a specialist (Costa) coffee.

The Curzon Theatre

In the Curzon Theatre, you'll find there are multiple performances on selected nights, so you can plan your evening however you like. Catch a show before dinner or enjoy one after.

Pool Bars

Enjoy a brief respite from the sun on one of its stools or stay on your deck lounger and have a refreshing cocktail - or two!

The Crow's Nest

Combining traditional nautical touches with a real sense of modernity. By day, it’s all about the view. By evening, piano music and cocktails transform the mood. Hosting up to 20 gins including small, artisan brands such as The Botanist Islay Dry Gin (Argyll), Tarquin`s Dry Gin (Cornwall), Darnley`s View (Edinburgh), as well as big names such as Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray and Hendrick’s.

Shopping

Open plan and inspired by the finest London department stores items on sale include souvenirs, designer handbags, perfumes and jewellery, clothing, evening wear and holiday essentials.

Carmen's Show Lounge

Carmen's is a show lounge featuring spectacular cabaret performances, fun quiz shows, tribute acts, family shows and glittering discos.

Spa

Onboard you will find some of the most luxurious spa facilities afloat, offering all the latest treatments for men and women. Additionally, you’ll find saunas, steam rooms and even hair and beauty salons. In fact, there’s everything you need to be truly pampered.

Sea Day Activities

During days at sea, there is a wide range of activities available on board such as guest speakers, quizzes, dance lessons, fitness classes, sports tournaments, galley walk-throughs, cinema screenings, spa seminars and craft classes. Of course, you may just prefer to relax on deck with a cocktail and a book; you can do as little or as much as you choose.

The Playhouse Cinema

In addition to films, The Playhouse is also the venue for classical recitals, lectures, port enhancement talks, and much more.

The Library

Choose from an extensive range of both fiction and non-fiction books, or browse through the tempting selection of books available for purchase. You’ll also find PC terminals where you can surf the net, research your next port of call or send an e-card back home.

The latest time children may be checked into the Night Nursery is 11pm. A quiet area is created to enable an infant to sleep and parents are contacted via a pager, should their infant wake. Room temperatures and frequent checks are made and recorded.

Family Pools

Get ready for some family fun. If you can’t keep your children out of the water they’ll love the ship's main pools.

Photo Gallery

You can view the photos that the team of onboard professional photographers captures and take home high-quality mementos of your holiday. The Photo Gallery can also develop your film or download your images and print your photos right on board. You can also buy other photographic supplies here including film, photo frames and albums.
