You told us that you wanted a choice of seating in the Pelorus Jack Lounge and we made it happen.

We have added comfy seats and coffee tables to existing tables and chairs. You can now sit at tables while you are enjoying the selection of food on offer and then move to stretch out on the chairs to enjoy your coffee and tea.

With our ships filling up for the summer holiday period, the Pelorus Jack Lounge is a perfect place to have a guaranteed seat, good food and drinks, away from the bustle of the rest of the ship if you are travelling with the family.
