She provides accomodation to a maximum of 2,000 guests in 990 staterooms which are located on 12 decks. Nice to mention is that 86% of the rooms are outside and 71% of the rooms have balconies. Of course, she is equipped with several lounges, bars and restaurants. Next to this, she is also equipped with a shopping mall, a winter garden, a grand, stylish West-End-style theatre, a conference center, fitness center, sports deck etc., etc. She was built this year by Fincantieri Shipyards, Italy.
