It consists of a reception, a forward-facing outdoor area with 1 Whirlpool, and a relaxation indoor area. The Spa facility is larger compared to other river lines ships. It also includes several steam rooms and treatments /massage rooms, Sanarium (less heated Finish Sauna, with a vast window offering great views) and a Beauty Salon (massages, facial treatments, hair- and barber services).
The Gym room is large in size (by river ship standards), hardwood-floored, with panoramic views and mainly cardiovascular equipment

At the “Aqua Lounge” (mid-ship location) guests can order from an extensive bar menu. Premium brand liquor is not included in the fares.
