The two-story theater (decks 6 and 7) offers space for around 700 guests. The armchairs are comfortable, tall spectators like the distance between the seats, and the view of the stage is excellent, which does not necessarily have to be the case for other cruise ships. The theater is played every day. The entertainment offer is accordingly varied. Discussions, lectures, artistry, comedy, singing and themed dance shows are offered.

The on-board shops and their offers are also noteworthy. Shopping on board this ship is really fun. The selection of clothing, cosmetics, jewelry, watches and other things that make life beautiful is considerable and the prices are moderate.

The evening entertainment program cannot be imagined without the dance events that take place in the atrium almost every day and were led by two dance teachers on our trip. The program varies between classic Ballroom dances and Sequence dancesthat follow a set movement pattern. The participants apparently have the greatest pleasure in moving on the dance floor in both dance forms.

An event must not go unmentioned. It is the “Great British Sailaway Party”, the “Great British Farewell Party”. Our party took place at 17:00 when leaving Ponta Delgada / Azores. Despite the fresh temperatures, the pool deck was covered with English flags. Almost every fellow traveler waved at least one flag. The typical English "hit songs" were intoned live on stage, for example Tom Jones with "Delilah". The piece is jokingly called the "Welsh Anthem". Of course, “Rule Britannia”, “Land of Hope and Glory” and “God save the Queen” were also included in this unforgettable event. The hundreds of English guests sang the hymns loudly along. On this occasion we painfully remembered an on-board party on an AIDA ship, where the other passengers only wanted to get as much free champagne as possible. - A toast to that!
