This might be one of the coolest bars you've ever been to. The walls are on hydraulics so we can lower the whole room to fit under low bridges as we sail. Head up to the Ice Bar for some fun. Think: signature U cocktails, craft beers, silent discos and international DJs.

Perk up with specialty coffee and tea from our 24-hour Mugs Coffee Bar. You've got a lot of exploring to stay caffeinated for, so grab a cup or two.
Consider the U Lounge the main hub of the ship. Meet up with the group before you head out for the day, or stop by for a drink from our well-stocked bar before or after dinner. You'll also be able to join mixology and paint & wine classes here throughout your cruise.
