One or two very funny comedians are usually part of our shows and funny is also a talent of our Cruise Director. Late on the second night of the cruise, there is an adult comedy show that's a bit rawer than the more family oriented comedy heard earlier in the evening.

International Wine Tasting
Let's be honest, most of us don't know much about wine, we just like what we like. So rather than taking a chance on ordering a wine from a wine list you may not recognize, you can increase your wine knowledge and sample many different types of wine on the first afternoon of the cruise.
The pool deck is fun for both adults and kids. On one side is a pool, jacuzzis, lounge chairs, Tiki bars and fun Sail Away music, dancing and games. On the opposite side, is a kids splash pool and 180 foot water slide. For passengers who want to relax in a quieter location, there is the sun deck off Ocean Breeze lounge.
For some people, being pampered is the best form of entertainment. That may be in the form of a massage, facial or beauty treatment. Many couples find a couples massage to be a great start to a very romantic evening.
While kids will enjoy the shows, we also offer age appropriate Kids Clubs that are well supervised with lots to do. There is also a game room on the pool deck along with a 180 foot water slide.
