Outside on Deck ...

The outside of this enormous ship had a complete running track that many people used everyday.

But this was a very pleasant spot to sit in.

It was the Solarium and although there were children on board this area was child free.

The sunbeds in here were more comfortable too and it was very sheltered.

Solarium Pool

Waiters  wandered around all day  serving drinks and delicious fruit Cocktails,  and there was an Ice Cream bar where you could serve yourself  to soft and tasty ice cream.

This is the pool area attached to the Solarium  and it was such a pleasant place to be in.

One of the other attractions was the  two Jacuzzis' on either side of the ship that were cantilevered outside the decks.

You could sit in them and watch the waves going past beneath you... and they were open 24 hours a day.

You can see the handrail of the upper decks in the photo.

Remember these are well above the sea about 10 decks up and the view was fabulous and as you can see they are quite large.

Imagine sipping Cocktails while enjoy the bubbles in one of these as you cruise along under blue skies.

Here is a photo of the climbing wall ... which needless to say I did not attempt.

It was quite big and of course tuition was given before you could use it.

It was very popular with the younger generation especially the lads.

In fact all tastes and sports  were catered for,  what ever the age group or level of expertise.

There was even a class for Cardmaking and another for Scrap booking.... which I missed!! 

More from the ship in my next post.

Hugs xx
