Review of AmaDara deck 1 (Tonle)
Mekong Restaurant is the AmaDara ship’s Main Dining Room – stylishly furnitured, with large panoramic windows and luxury dining amenities. It serves an open-seating buffet-style Breakfast (English and Continental) and Lunch (with a variety of salads and soups, hot entrees, desserts), complimented by a la carte menu and the “Action Station” (local cuisine corner). The multi-course Dinner menu features mostly Western cuisine specialties, with complimentary local beer, wine, and spirits. Tables capacity varies (4 to 8 passengers per table). The Dara’s Dining Room is connected to an open-air terrace with comfortable seating.
The ship’s 2-deck high, open-floor design Atrium Lobby has the Reception Desk (guest services, assistance) and the APT Cruise Director’s Desk (information on land tours/excursions, daily activities, itinerary information). A small area is dedicated to selling newspapers/magazines and for the complimentary DVDs (in-room usage). Here is also the Gift Shop selling mostly Cambodian-Vietnamese handmade souvenirs, some fashion and accessories, and also special occasion gifts.
The Lobby is also the AmaDara ship’s embarkation area with entryways on both starboard and portside.
Tonle Deck cruise cabins from 101 to 122, all of which are Balcony Staterooms (categories 4x C and 18x B).
