As an AquaClass® guest, you can enjoy Blu, your own exclusive restaurant for breakfast and dinner.

We call it "clean cuisine."

These veranda staterooms offer spa elements infused into the stateroom experience and priority seating in the chic AquaClass restaurant, Blu. These spa-inspired staterooms, offer unlimited access to the AquaSpa® Persian Garden as well as a host of other soothing extras. If you love the spa, there's no finer way to travel.
