Among ways to spend your days you may choose to indulge in the Six Senses Spa, dine on Michelin-starred cuisine in the vast and elaborate dining room, luxuriate in the Onassis Suite, sip a cocktail in the famous Ari’s bar or follow in the fingerprints of Maria Callas as you play the piano in the lounge that takes her name. Her magnificent interior boasts a design that epitomises timeless elegance and style, with sumptuous fabrics, soft lighting and beautiful furnishings ensuring complete luxury and comfort when you return to the haven of your yacht during action-packed charter itineraries.
