The Arion underwent a complete refurbishment in 2000, updating the interiors, to create a warm inviting atmosphere throughout its public areas and passenger cabins. The Arion accommodates up to 320 passengers on her five decks and her on board facilities include a swimming pool and spacious sun deck, a beauty salon, a restaurant serving high quality cuisine and three lounge bars, all designed to make your cruise comfortable and enjoyable.




Arion - Dining Room

The Arion's main restaurant is located on the upper deck and can seat 320 passengers. A full English breakfast may be served here, or in the Lido lounge, weather permitting. Lunch in the Lido lounge is an informal affair where you can savour a choice of four courses in the restaurant or buffet style in more casual surroundings. The Arion also offers afternoon tea, with a selection of sandwiches, cakes and warm scones with jam and clotted cream. Enjoy fabulous dinners served in the main restaurant created by the Arion's Master Chefs.
