At 105 feet above the waterline, this stylish cocktail bar is higher than the bridge and affords the ship's most amazing views.

By day you can watch the glistening sea as the world floats by in this comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. But as evening draws in The Crow's Nest comes into its own; with a light tickling of the ivories to set the mood, there's no better vantage point from which to enjoy a dramatic sunset at sea.
