Excel class signature spaces

Your holiday wishes have shaped every aspect of our Excel class ships' design and experience so that you can enjoy a getaway unlike any other. Their signature, sociable spaces are sure to wow.


Let there be light! ... (Cameras and action!) Our radiant SkyDome venues are the place to kick-back, take a dip in the pool, or even catch a film at Arvia’s open-air cinema, SeaScreen. As night falls, feel the buzz with spectacular production shows, spellbinding performances and live music and DJ sets.

Grand Atrium

Your first footsteps inside an Excel-class Grand Atrium, with its three luminous floors and open ocean views, will likely be a holiday moment that you’ll want to replay in your mind’s eye again and again. The heartbeat of our ships: watch and listen in awe as artists and musicians deliver unforgettable performances; try out the tantalising variety of restaurants or take a seat at one of the stylish cafés and bars.
