Larger than average with a relatively spacious bathroom. Nicely appointed and clean.

Ship tip

Understand that total disorganized tender and embarking/disembarking awaits you. If you are non EU citizen, passport will be taken from you at some point in cruise and day of disembarkation, retrieving it will be chaotic.
