|WEAR||Dressing code is “smart casual”
From May through September, light-colored cotton clothes that “breathe” will help keep you cool. Swimsuits, as well as sunglasses, a hat and a good sunscreen. Bathing suits or shorts are not permitted in the inside restaurants, but buffet lunch is also served at the pool deck. In restaurants, casinos, lounges and nightclubs, and in the other open spaces on our ships, your attire should be “country club casual”– relaxed, yet elegant – after 18:00. For your safety and comfort on board we suggest sports or flat deck shoes with low heels. These types of footwear will make it easier for you to navigate the cruise ship decks and stairwells.

Mykonos combines the dazzling white beauty of a typical Greek island with a sophisticated atmosphere.

Kusadasi is a beach resort in Turkey famous for its marina and its colorful bazaar where visitors can find a wide selection of hand-made carpets, leather bags and local products. But mostly, Kusadasi is known due to its proximity to the ancient ruins of Ephesus, and its Terrace Houses one of the world’s largest open-air museums, the House of Virgin Mary and the Sirince Village.
