Whether it’s the North Cape, the Mediterranean or even a round-the-world cruise: enjoy a fully immersive cruise feeling on a comparatively small and intimate ship with a maximum of 1,000 passengers. Unwind in the informal atmosphere on board our popular ocean-going ship and let us pamper you with gourmet treats in our five restaurants, four of which are all-inclusive. Our attentive, German-speaking staff serve first-class drinks in the seven beautifully furnished bars and cafes on board. The swimming pool on the Lido Deck can be used all year round, regardless of the weather, thanks to a retractable glass roof. Our on-board activities are rounded off with a fantastic entertainment programme with bespoke shows, a great choice of live music and captivating lectures about the destinations.
