General information:
Depending on your accommodation category breakfast is served from 07.00 at either grand Buffet restaurant (Oceanview cabins), Oceanic Ala Carte (Color Class cabins) or Observation lounge (Color Suite cabins). 
The ship offers many places from quiet and atmospheric observation lounge on the top deck to the more stylish Manhattan Bar where you can enjoy a good company and a drink accompanied with piano/jazz music. Should you prefer to watch a game of football and have a beer instead, the Monkey Pub will be your place for the evening. For those of you whom enjoy the night club life, don't worry - the ships' own DJ plays funky dance tunes all night in the Tower Night club. Not enough?
