What type of entertainment is offered? -- Listen. Dance. Cheek-to-cheek. The moment you step aboard, a musical trio and solo vocalist set the mood for an elegant evening of cosmopolitan delights. After dinner as you cruise the tip of Manhattan, these entertainers continue to compliment the spectacular skyline views with a sophisticated variety of familiar standards, light pop and Broadway tunes.

What is your smoking policy? -- All interior areas of the ship are non-smoking areas. Passengers who enjoy smoking may do so on the outdoor observation decks.
