Review of Carnival Tropicale deck 9 (Bridge-Lido-Pool)
Giada Deck 9 was the Bridge Deck/Lido Deck/Pool Deck.
The fore-located Navigation Bridge (aka Wheelhouse) and the adjacent Captain's Suite and officers' quarters were inaccessible to passengers.
The cruise liner's main swimming pool was located midship (in front of the funnel/smokestack) and had a teak sundeck (sunbathing area with loungers) and two poolside bars.
Adjacent to the swimming pool (aft and around the funnel) was positioned the "U" shaped Giada Great Buffet (complimentary Lido restaurant) with capacity 270 seats (220x indoor plus 50x outdoor) and large windows with views obstructed by lifeboats. At the stern is the restaurant's open-air terrace (with shaded seating) served by Anorama Bar.
