Service Deck 3 has mostly staff and crew cabins (forward location), storage and provision rooms. Here is also the crew lounge (relaxation and dining room)
Exploration Landing Deck is the Tender Lobby area (aka “tender pit”) facilitating the passenger loading/offloading process on shore excursions and landings (expeditions and tours ashore). The docking bay is at sea level. Ship-to-shore tendering is serviced by Polarcirkel (inflatable boats) located in the aft storage area. These boats are used mostly on nature and wildlife watching excursions.
