Choose from four separate swimming pools for a refreshing daily dip or spend the day immersed in the library and writing room. Soothing body treatments are on the menu at the serene, Asian-themed Lotus Spa, which also includes a gorgeous terrace area and a fully equipped fitness center. With frequently changing menus and multiple main dining rooms, passengers can choose mealtimes, companions, and cuisine. Additional convenient dining options include 24-hour buffets and room service, plus the poolside pizzeria, hamburger grill, and ice cream bar. After sunset, the lights keep shining with original Broadway and Las Vegas productions in the spacious theater and plenty of room for stargazing on the balcony of the Skywalkers disco and lounge.
