Its nine passenger decks encompass 15 public rooms and boutiques as well as a spa and gymnasium, and an alternative restaurant. The ship's inaugural season commences with a trans-Atlantic crossing June 3, followed by northern Europe, west and east Africa, Southeast Asia and Australia/New Zealand cruises ranging in length from 10 to 22 days.
