Alcohol is not sold, but wine is offered on special occasions, and passengers are encouraged to bring aboard their own supply of alcoholic beverages. Storage facilities, setups, and soft drinks are complimentary, and the crew can point out top-up stores along the way.
Cabins, scattered over three decks, include outside and inside cabins, all very small and all having private showers, sinks and toilets. Some cabins open to the outside deck, others to a traditional inside corridor. Some open both ways.
Organized activities and usual shipboard pastimes -- such as bingo, spas, shopping and major stage shows -- found on big ships are absent. The emphasis is more on socializing, sightseeing and, depending on the itinerary, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing and glass-bottom boat riding. Evening entertainment is usually a lecture, followed by cards, reading and videos. Local bands and entertainers come aboard in some ports. Shore excursions are extra and may be bought as an advance-purchase package or individually onboard.
