The Calypso Show Lounge plays host to the entertainment after dinner with a range of cabaret performers joined by the ship’s resident show team. There’s also dancing late into the evening at the Night Club and plenty of fine music found throughout the ship as performed by the resident pianist and violinist. 

For some more subdued entertainment, guests can always find some company to play a few hands in the card room or for those who prefer games of chance, there are a number of table games at the Casino.  Guests can challenge their fellow passenger at a range of quizzes conducted throughout the voyage. 

 

 

Activities

There’s plenty to keep guests entertained throughout the day; relax with a swim in the pool or play some of the traditional deck games.  There’s a gym for those looking to get some extra exercise and a beauty salon for a little extra pampering. 

A Cruise and Maritime voyage offers plenty of opportunities for enrichment.  Passengers can share in the knowledge of the guest speakers throughout a range of specialist subjects including criminology, gardening and even maritime history. 

There are opportunities to learn new skills with the on board arts and crafts TV channel. Specialists will guide guests through a range of skills including calligraphy, making bead jewellery and millinery.
