Outside, the aft deck offers areas for relaxation and access to the swimming platform.Photo: Tom van OossanenTo the aft of the bridge deck, guests can make use of the winter garden where a second lounge area can be transformed into an indoor/outdoor entertaining area. Overlooking this space is the sun deck, which includes space for seating, a bar, grill and sound system. Four additional staterooms - all with private bathrooms - can be found on the lower deck.
