Insider Tips

  • The dress code is smart casual, but dress up on “elegant” nights.
  • Lines for lunch in the Lido Restaurant are often long, so aim to eat slightly outside of peak times.
  • Besides Serenity, a quiet spot for reading is the Alexandria Library.
  • If you’re crossing from one end to the other, use decks 5 or 9. If you fancy an espresso with lunch, a coffee bar—which many people miss—is tucked away in the middle of the Lido.
  • If you need to do laundry, there’s usually a special offer toward the end of the cruise.
  • The duty-free shopping offers great prices, particularly on alcohol.
