A striking blue and gold crystalline sculpture from Murano, Italy, dominates the dramatic three-deck atrium of this ship. In the two-deck dining room, twin staircases frame an orchestra pit and red walls provide a dramatic background for enormous paintings of flowers. The Rubens Lounge is named for the 16th-century Flemish painter; it features a marble and granite dance floor, glass sculptures done in the style of the artist and tapered columns that resemble ballet dancers. Guests enjoy panoramic views of the horizon from the Crow's Nest Lounge at the top of the ship. This lounge is actually divided into three parts: the Captain's Area, which resembles an English pub; the Tea Area, where palm trees create a light and airy ambiance; and the disco, with a bar, dance floor, disc jockey booth and bandstand. One of the most unique features is the Culinary Arts Center, a state-of-the-art show kitchen with plasma video screens and cooking display counters -- a must-see for food and wine enthusiasts.
