which you can match with sake and sake-based cocktails.
If you want to start the evening with drinks while watching the sun slip below the horizon, head for the loungers on deck 11 or the Observation Lounge, where floor-toceiling windows provide sweeping views to complement the champagne cocktails. A jaw-dropping four-metre chandelier with 6,000 pieces of crystal greets passengers as they arrive on board, and the decor continues throughout the ship in palatial, old-school style. A gold balustrade accents the sweeping grand staircase in the lobby, the restaurants all have soaring ceilings, and the hallways are lit by more chandeliers. Close attention has been paid to every decorative detail, from the specially commissioned paintings by Spanish artist Eduardo Arranz-bravo in the lobby and works by Chagall and Picasso at the Prime 7 steakhouse, to the glittering tiles at Compass Rose and the Asian motif in Pacific Rim.
