A large screen and entertainment centre provides the opportunity to view either a movie or the days’ footage from the cushioned benches in the saloon.

All outside areas have teak decking and shaded areas. The double doors from the saloon open directly onto a large cocktail deck where snacks are served in the late afternoon.
