Review of Ambassador Ambience deck 12 (CMV Amy Johnson-Lido-Pool-Bridge)
The fore-located Navigation Bridge (aka Wheelhouse) and the adjacent Captain’s Suite and officers quarters are inaccessible to passengers.
“The Grill” is a specialty restaurant (surcharges PP) run by celebrity chef Luke Mangan (reservations-only, closed on port days).
“Cappuccino's” Bar serves the pool deck with light snacks and drinks.
The cruise ship’s pool deck has 2 large swimming pools (the forward one is adults-only) and 2 hot tubs. The area is served by the Lido Pool Bar, “Alfresco Grill” (complimentary fast food choices with AU BBQ fare /charges apply at dinner, after 5 PM) and an Ice Cream Bar "Gallato's" (charges apply; offers “New Zealand Natural” ice cream, including the CMV’s “Choc Hokey Pokey” flavour). In the evenings, here are organized open-air deck parties.
The “Pantry Restaurant” is the Lido Buffet restaurant. Dining times here vary (sea / port days): breakfast (6:30-11 AM / 6-11 AM), lunch (11:30 AM - 2:30 PM / 11:30 AM - 3 PM), and dinner (5-9 PM).
The “Fusion” room is an Asian-cuisine specialty restaurant annex (cover charges PP apply). Fusion’s menu features Japanese and Thai food specialties.
