The day starts at 11am, so you can take advantage of our fantastic onboard facilities before the shows begin. There’ll be performances from our live band to enjoy. 

You can also expect plenty of activities from the wildlife team, plus Jack the Pirate, the ship’s mascot, will be there to keep the kids entertained before the shows start.

A packed lunch will be provided to all guests and this will be served in the 7 Seas restaurant. 

Lunch includes a freshly prepared sandwich, a soft drink, chocolate bar, muffin and fruit too. Vegetarian options are available.

The ORCA team will be talking all about the fantastic marine wildlife that we call neighbours. Did you know that you can find dolphins, whales and porpoise all in the North Sea? There’s an incredible array of creatures that call the North Sea home, and ORCA wants to tell you all about them.
