The complex features a swimming pool (round-shaped, tiered), 2 large Jacuzzis (whirlpool hot tubs), a sunbathing area (with loungers, live plants for decoration), pool parties (in the evenings).

deck plan 13 cabins information: Balconies on rooms located where the deck narrows are shaded by a large metal roof extending from deck 14 above. Forward-location balcony rooms (portside and starboard) are close to a Bridge Viewing platform (located on top the Navigation Bridge) so their veranda view is obstructed by the platform (only when looking forward). They also may experience privacy issues when this platform is in use.
Tip: Forward on Deck 13 there is a "secret door" leading directly to Deck 13's Solarium (fore-located adults-only relaxation complex on 2 levels/decks 13 and 14). This allows you faster access to the Solarium - without having to go through Deck 14's midship-located pool deck first.
Tip: The stairwell in the aft Atrium (connecting decks 13-14) has a see-through/glass floor that allows you to peer down 10 decks - all the way to the Royal Esplanade (Deck 5).
