From the moment you step into the atrium lobby, with its fantasy furniture and artwork you know that it is going to be a fun cruise. An explosion of bright Caribbean-style colors set the tone in both the public rooms and accommodations. A dash of contemporary and art deco styling elevates things in some of the ship’s fancier restaurants and lounges..The Atrium is six decks tall with 3 glass elevators, two winding stairways going up 2 decks to the Internet Café with the Java Cafe is located in center. There is often live music in the Atrium.

Ornate red walls and a stunning crystal chandelier are reminiscent of the palace it is named after. The Versailles windows were simply gorgeous. They looked out the aft off the ship and made one feel as if they were in a very luxurious restaurant.Versailles was by far our favorite eating-place. We end up going there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The portions were small but you can ask for more than one selection per course. We also found that it was a wise choice to select the soup of the day, even if it was something that didn’t sound good to us. It was always a surprise at how good they were.
