Relax in the lounge area where the ship’s designers have managed to create a really lovely, genteel atmosphere of understated elegance with a wide selection of comfortable seating. Where could be better to lose yourself in conversation with like-minded new friends, sip a coffee, perhaps play chess or bridge, or just relax whilst admiring the incredible scenery?
Please note: MS Swiss Ruby does not feature any health & fitness facilities. However, the outer Sun Deck is a great place to read, relax and admire the ever changing kaleidoscope of stunning views as they pass serenely by, with drink in hand.
