deck plan 6 cabins information: most-forward located balcony cabins (portside and starboard) are with larger verandas and unobstructed sea views when looking straight down from them. Balconies on rooms located where the deck narrows are with obstructed views due to lifeboats (which tops come up to the railing’s height). Forward staterooms are located above the ship’s Theater (main show lounge), so noise during rehearsals or the evening stage shows could be an issue.
Two70° Lounge (mid-level 2 of 3) is a 3-decks high relaxation-observation-show lounge (also known as “living room”). During the day, this place offers 270-degree panoramic seaviews from its floor-ceiling windows (glass walls with an automatic shading system, overlooking the stern). The lounge's ground level (deck 5) has stage and an ice bar, and is served with drinks and snacks by its own full-service bar Cafe Two70. The upper levels are for the overlooking balconies. On deck 6 are located The Library, The Workshop, Conference Center.

Nightly, Two70 transforms into a show lounge with live entertainment. The evening show program has an original RCI stage production named “Spectra's Cabaret”. This is an exclusive multi-dimensional cabaret show produced by Moment Factory (multimedia studio). What makes this show unconventional is the use of Vistarama and Roboscreen (both trademarked multimedia technologies) implemented within the lounge.
There are a total of 18 projectors for the Vistaramas (12K resolution / Ultra-HD video backgrounds that cover the windows at night). RoboShows are performed by a total of 6 Roboscreens (computerized large LED screens controlled via a mapping system) descend from the room's ceiling. They display real-time views, graphics, animations (incl virtual dancers), and at times - dance to the music (twist, spin and move around by the use of powerful robotic arms) and even interact with guests. Live music and dance acts are performed on the stage.
Starwater (a signature live show in the evenings) combines singing, dancing and aerial acrobatics with Ultra-HD digital imagery. Other themed shows are the virtual concerts and symphonies - real performances pre-recorded in UltraHD and broadcasted on the Roboscreens. Two70 Lounge also hosts the RCI's traditional Captain's Corner event. This is a Q&A session with the ship's Captain, Cruise Director, Chief Engineer, head of dining operations (food and drinks) and other staff representatives.
During the day, at the lounge are held educational seminars, classes and workshops, including dance classes (also ballroom dancing), culinary classes, jewelry making. In the evenings, Two70 turns into an adults-only nightclub with ample seating and a large dance floor.
Exclusively for Spectrum OTS' Two70 Lounge, RCI developed "The Silk Road" production. This show is themed on world's diverse cultures and music of the countries along the Silk Road (a network of ancient trade routes connecting Asia with Europe). This original RCI production is combined with lounge's signature technologies Vistarama and Roboscreens. At Two70 is also held the "Expedition Two70" (reality gaming) featuring scenes like fantasy-type temples and ruins.
