This is the sistership to Annaliesse, both of which were built to address the growing demand for large-party charters. And for her weekly rate of E504,000 (about $647,500 at presstime), you get to relax in a marble-lined Jacuzzi room (yes, room) while your kids go to town in the special children’s area, complete with a slide and other things to climb on. Or you can sample wines (upwards of 500 bottles can be stowed aboard) at the upper bar while you await other members of your party getting facials and the like in the beauty salon. There are also separate sauna rooms and steam facilities for men and women.
