    There will be three types of staterooms available for this cruise:

    Veranda 1B* Stateroom = $3795
    Aqua Class* Stateroom = $4395

    Prices are per person based on double occupancy.

    *Oceanview Staterooms:  Located on Deck 3 and feature expansive views of the ocean right from your window.

    *Veranda 1B Stateroom:  Located on Decks 8 and 9 in the midship area.  Due to their upper and more central location, these staterooms are typically more desirable. 

    *Aqua Class:  A select few of these rooms are located on Deck 11. Enjoy luxurious spa elements infused into the stateroom experience.  Savor clean cuisine with priority seating at Blu Restaurant, and escape to the Relaxation Room and Persian Garden for stunning sea views. Relax with AquaSpa treatments arranged by your personal spa concierge and feel rejuvenated with wellness classes such as meditation and yoga.

    Because the rooms are based on double occupancy, if you need to find a quilting roommate, click here to join our Featherweights Afloat Hawaii 2020 Facebook group.  Feel free to introduce yourself, and post that you are looking for a roommate.
