Iona is designed to bring the outside in. Through innovative design and unique spaces, she connects you with the sea, sky and shoreline. As the first passenger ship in the UK to be powered by LNG (liquified natural gas), the world’s cleanest burning fossil fuel, Iona leads the way in making the world a greener place.
Iona’s SkyDome is the first of its kind in the cruise industry. With its glass dome roof and spacious layout, it’s flooded with natural light. It offers a relaxed, poolside environment by day, with tantalising dining and drinking options. With its retractable stage, it’s home to top acts, live shows, and late-night dancing. Come evening, the space seamlessly transitions into a must-visit entertainment venue, showcasing spectacular aerialist performances, and playing host to party nights under the stars. Whatever the weather, the SkyDome is a fun and welcoming space for families, offering laid-back dining, exciting entertainment, a swimming pool, and room to roam.
Iona will offer guests unprecedented levels of quality and flexibility when it comes to food and drink. The exciting array of options combines brand-new dining and drinking concepts with much-loved signature venues to give new meaning to the word ‘choice’. With 29 different venues to choose from, there’s something for everyone, whatever their mood, regardless of whether you’re an early bird or night owl. Plus, in a fleet first, Freedom Dining is standard in all the main dining restaurants. Among Iona’s unique new concepts, look out for The Quays, a foodie piazza where you can eat your way around the world; British-style gastropub The Keel and Cow; and an exciting on-deck dining experience, Taste 360.
Day to night, there’s never a dull moment on Iona. From film to full-scale production shows, live music to impromptu aerial acrobatics, the ship offers entertainment to suit any and every mood. Grab some popcorn and snacks before sitting back and relaxing in the plush boutique surroundings of Ocean Studios. Four cinema screens will show both classics and recent blockbusters in surround sound. With screenings throughout the day, there will be films to suit all tastes.
It’s all about the music at The 710 Club. Located on deck 6, it’s a secret haven – exclusively for adults – in which to relax and enjoy the musical atmosphere. During the day, it’s a retreat from the hustle and bustle, offering something a little different. At night, it transforms into a sophisticated venue hosting a diverse range of top-class singers and bands tailored to British tastes: acoustic covers, ‘impromptu’ performances, classic and modern jazz, swing, Rat Pack, modern and acoustic rock music will feature.
Other highlights on board Iona include the sleek and sophisticated Headliners Theatre with latest LED technology, perfect for a fun-filled night out of showbiz glamour; The Club House that serves as a vibrant multi-purpose space for games, dancing, and modern ‘live lounge’, giving it a non-stop upbeat atmosphere; and The Limelight Club, a hotspot for dancing, with fantastic food, great company, and show-stopping performances.
Sailing with Iona gives you a chance to indulge both body and soul. Soak away all your worries in a hydrotherapy suite, or enjoy a rejuvenating session by choosing from the wide range of beauty treatments and feel-good therapies available at Oasis Spa. Prefer to stay active? Play a friendly match of table-tennis, swim in the infinity pool, or join in a game of basketball. There are sporting pursuits for all levels, so feel free to try something new!
Travelling with the family is an exciting adventure, and we know how important it is to keep children happy around the clock when on holiday. As a family-friendly ship, Iona offers a safe, fun and welcoming environment for children of all ages, from toddlers to teens.
The Reef, with a secure outdoor play area and a designated splash park, is a free on-board activity programme for children. There is also a complimentary Night Nursery available for ages six months to four years, open from 6pm to 2am each night. For teens, secret hang-out Scene gives them a chance to have their own space, and allows them to dip in and out of planned events. Separated from the rest of the children’s club, Scene operates during high peak cruising season. In the low season, it becomes an entertainment space for adults.
