Review of Crown Iris deck 10 (Lido-Pools-Sundeck1)
Cafe Royale is the smaller one of two buffet restaurants on the Lido Deck. It operates as self-service indoor dining venue, part of which are The Chef’s Corners Buffets (2x buffet lines positioned in the hallways). Menus are the same as those at the San Marco buffet, only the side dishes are fewer here.
The Chef’s Corners options are pancakes and freshly baked waffles for breakfast, and during the day – classic fast food, including burgers, hotdogs, sausages. The buffet lines also serve the pool area with fast food (complimentary) and with ice cream (costs extra per scoop).
The ship’s Pool Deck area is served with drinks and refreshments by two poolside bars - Pool Bar (Wi-Fi spot) and the Topsiders Bar. The area has 2 swimming pools (1 main flanked by 2 whirlpools, and 1 adult-only), outdoor seating (round tables with chairs), sunbathing area with loungers. This is also the place for the open-deck parties.
Piazza San Marco Restaurant (aft location) is a casual dining Lido buffet restaurant open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The restaurant has large wraparound panoramic windows on all its three side and one big buffet line with separate salads and desserts bars.
