About this room

The City Alpha is often referred to as a 'glass boat' due to her large panoramic windows. Going through an extensive renovation in 2015 and 2016, she now has a new upper deck, outfitted with modern seating designed to provide a more comfortable and enjoyable sightseeing experience for all. The boat seats 400 passengers, has two bars and wheelchair accessibility. State-of-the-art audio and visual equipment and TV screens are available as well.
