Onboard Activity

Onboard there’s so much for you to do you might find it hard to tear yourself away and visit all the Spanish and French cities, tough decisions will have to be made. You can keep tabs on your fitness regime with Zumba, yoga and cross fit, or brush up on cooking, and chill out with some Meditation. If you decide to disembark, and you really should, you’ll get to explore the various European cities dotted around the French and Spanish coastlines. In the evenings, you can return to the ship and party until the sun goes down.
