The first deck is devoted to plea- sures of the senses, starting with a lavishly decorated dining room, large enough to accommodate your guests in one seating. Adja- cent to the dining room is a galley suitable to the culinary artistry of the most demanding "Escoffier" chef.
Forward of the dining room, the scintillating cabaret is ready for an evening of entertainment. Here, your guests can dance the night away, view your outstanding dance review, see the latest mo- vie, or other entertainment which is on your schedule for the cruise. By day, the cabaret transforms into a 100 seat lecture room for semi- nars.
On the third deck, a spacious lounge offers a glorious view of the ocean gently rolling by or the bright white moon-lit strip of palm-lined beach of your secluded anchor- age. Where better for your guests to unwind after an action-packed day?
Adjacent to the lounge, your guests can take their chances one evening in the casino. There, one game of blackjack could make their evening, or one more pull at the slots could ring the jackpot.
