A rise and fall 50” LED TV (system with movie server/apple TV) incorporated into the sculptural wooden furniture separates the saloon from the dining room.


Dining Room

The dining room welcomes 4 to 14 guests around two inlaid veneer tables that can be assembled to create a larger formal dining area. The mirror ceiling and the huge backlit glass feature enhance the art deco theme and provide this dining area with an exquisite feeling of refinement.



Forward of the Dining Room, a sweeping staircase leads to upper and lower decks. The glass panelled elevator serves all five decks from the wine-cellar on tank-deck up to the Sun Deck. The Foyer also includes a day head and side entry access.
