Astor Leisure Facilities
From the moment you step on board, the choice is yours to join any of the many activities on offer or simply enjoy the luxury of being able to do absolutely nothing. The ship’s daily programme will be delivered to your cabin each evening, outlining the events of the following day. Maybe join the fitness team on the Sun Deck for a jog or a walk, yoga or an early game of deck chess. Later in the day, perhaps listen to a speaker or learn a new skill from one of our arts and crafts specialists. And, on those sunny tropical days, relax by the pool with a good book and perhaps a refreshing cocktail. And when the sun goes down in the evening, pre-dinner drinks are served on the Sun Terrace with the view of the ocean and the Captains Club where your favourite drink is ready for you.
Nothing whets the appetite like sea air and a leisurely dinner with mouth-watering food and good company is without doubt one of the highlights of the day. After dinner, the highly acclaimed entertainment team invite you to join them in the Astor Lounge where they will display their talents in a colourful big show, and late night cabarets will ensure that your evenings keep going with a swing. Alternatively, enjoy music from our resident pianist or a game of cards with new found friends. And when you decide to call it a night, your comfortable stateroom is just a short stroll away.
Food is always one of the many highlights of cruising. Whether you are enjoying a pool deck buffet, a relaxed lunch in the Übersee Club or dining in the magnificent Waldorf Restaurant, our superb chefs on board Astor will not disappoint you. You will also have the chance to dine in the intimate 20 seat Toscana or Romantic speciality dining rooms at no additional charge. Your evening meal starts with an appetiser followed by a delicious soup and a light salad. Main courses range from appetising seafood, mouth-watering rack of lamb, medallions of beef, escalope of veal, chicken chasseur, Italian pastas, Asian stir fries, and traditional roasts – and that’s just a small selection of the array of dishes available for you to savour. Tasty vegetarian meals to tantalise your taste buds are featured on every menu, as well as healthy options. Finish your meal with a cheese platter, fresh fruit or, if you are unable to resist, try one of the delicious desserts. The variety is endless! A selection of fine wines are available to complement your meal.
