The vessels' futuristic "Y" shape structure will enable panoramic sea views and increase the proportion of balcony cabins.

The ships' G bow (vertically positioned at a 90 degree angle) has been designed to improve stability, hydrodynamics as well as to enhance guest comfort. Other guest-centric innovations include family-friendly villages, a panoramic aft, and a glass pool lounge.
