Your luxurious cup of coffee is served at the Captains Lounge. This magnificent area on the Main Deck is a perfect spot to unwind or work in peace and harmony, over a few surprising cups of coffee.

In fine weather it is available all day long for whoever wants to have a snack, a cocktail or enjoy a cup of coffee and some pie.
