Review of AmaLotus deck 1 (Tonle)
Mekong Restaurant is the AmaLotus ship’s single-sitting capacity Main Dining Room. The venue features large floor-ceiling panoramic windows, colonial-style furniture, and luxury dining amenities. The restaurant serves an open-seating buffet-style Breakfast (Continental and English) and Lunch (salads, soups, and hot entrees, desserts). Breakfasts and Lunches here are also complimented by an “a la carte” menu and the Mekong region-inspired “Action Station” (aft portside location) offering local specialties. The multi-course Dinner menu features North American, European, and Southeast Asia cuisine specialties, complimented by wine and beer. The Vietnam-Cambodia’s traditional dishes are prepared by local chefs. The Mekong Restaurant has as an extension an open-air shaded terrace.
Adjacent to the Restaurant is the Galley / Kitchen, with its drinks and food storage rooms.
The 3-decks high Atrium Lobby has the ship’s Reception (guest services desk- assistance). The Cruise Director’s desk is also here (starboard location) providing information on land tours /excursions and the daily itinerary program and onboard activities. There is a small area (portside) where guests can buy newspapers/magazines and also get DVDs (complimentary, for in-room usage).
The Reception Lobby is also the AmaLotus main embarkation area with both portside and starboard entryways. Here is also located the Gift Shop (portside) which sells mostly Cambodia-Vietnam handmade souvenirs, handbags, clothes and accessories, and special occasion gifts.
