Gelato store with many interesting flavours. My fav. was apple

Bellini's wine bar

Photo's are easy to find by scanning your ship card (this is a great improvement over the "just look for your face") Actually this turned out to be not true, at least for me but maybe does for portraits or for those who welcome the photographers enough that they recognise them.

Laundromat on every deck

Awesome casino with lots of fun slots including my fav.Game King machines

Beautiful staircase leads to the Calypso Cove shops for perfume, jewelry, watches, clothing etc.

I can see why the ship has Regal in its name. I would like the dancing light show.

It was lovely although a tad cool in the evenings even with a blanket. I'm sure it would be real awesome on a warm summer evening.
