A typical day on board

The truth is there is no typical day on board. Our ships may be smaller and more intimate; however, there is still a vast array of activities to keep you occupied throughout the day. And the choice is yours; you can do as much or as little as you wish.

Below is a sample of some of the things that you could fill your day on board with.

Breakfast – get your day kick-started with a delicious breakfast. Choose from an array of cereals, breads, continental or cooked breakfasts. For those looking for something a little healthier, try a delicious omelette, poached egg or even some smoked salmon.

Walk a mile – on fine days why not join our ship’s crew with a walk around the open decks. Take in some fresh air and on ports days you’ll be treated to some fantastic views as well.

Fitness Classes – take in a class or two – our fully qualified fitness instructors run Yoga and Pilates classes for all levels and abilities, and for a small supplement, this could be the perfect way to relax before your day ahead.

Games and activities – your cruise hosts put on a vast array of games and activities throughout the day. Join fellow guests for a friendly game of cards, or for this a little more competitive, try the darts, carpet bowels or table tennis.

Lunch – with different restaurants offering a choice of dining options – the hardest choice may well be where to have your lunch. For a more formal setting try the main restaurants and for those who prefer something a little less formal, the buffet restaurants also offer a great array of delicious dishes.

Fitness Centre – each ship features a fully equipped fitness centre for you to stay in shape whilst on board. The perfect way to burn off some of those calories consumed at lunch and prepare yourself for dinner.

Bookmark Café – a great place to relax and chat with old or new friends. With a vast array of Taylors of Harrogate teas and coffees, plus a selection of delicious chocolates – this really is the perfect place to indulge.

Atlantis Spa – the ultimate in relaxation, the Atlantis Spa offers a wide choice of health and beauty therapies. Unwind with a neck and shoulder massage, indulge in a facial or have your hair or nails done for evening dinner.

Afternoon Tea – a quintessential British pastime – afternoon tea is served every afternoon with an array of delicious cakes. To sample the ultimate afternoon tea, why not upgrade to our “traditional afternoon tea” service for a true taste of Britain.

Quizzes and Bingo – the British love a quiz, and we have various quizzes running throughout the day for you to test your general knowledge. And when those brains need a rest, participate in another British pastime – Bingo!

Dinner – Often the highlight for many, our fine dining experience will ensure your taste buds have been well taken care of. With a choice of six course options, you can sample as much or as little of the menu as you wish.

Showtime – every evening brings a different show – sit back, relax and enjoy as our show team put on a colourful display of dance and song. We also feature a range of guest acts from Magicians to singers, from Comedians to classical musicians.

Dancing & Cocktails – Your evening doesn’t finish with show time – enjoy the cocktail of the day whilst listening to some live music. Or perhaps find a partner and get your dancing shoes on.

Gaming tables – If you fancy a flutter then why not try your hand at Black Jack or Roulette.
