ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

The first thing guests notice when stepping into the Vista View Lounge aboard the Admiralty Dream is light, air, and views - wide picture windows port and starboard, and a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows facing forward. Backing the delightful scene are a bar and library with exquisitely detailed woodworking. Ample outside deck space and easy access to the extra-roomy bow area are perfect spots to view the sights around you. Smoking is prohibited anywhere inside the vessel including all staterooms.
