The fee includes access to all restaurants and alcoholic beverages at dinner, a state-of-the-art wellness center, sundeck and pool, high-speed internet access, entertainment, “enrichment workshops” and housekeeping.
The ship will also have a 24-hour emergency hospital with free medical visits.
Digital nomads can take advantage of the onboard business center, which includes meeting rooms, 14 offices, a lounge and a business library.
