Vista Deck features two Skylight domes (glass-roof covers) over the Palm Court lounge (forward) and one Skylight dome over the Atrium.
Vista Bar (Bar and Grille) has a hydraulic structure that can be lowered when the ship passes under low bridges. Vista Bar serves the sundeck area with fast food and beverages (all complimentary). The bar has a large-size flat TV and an outdoor seating area. The bar also provides the food and drinks for the Crystal Cruises' traditional open-air BBQ parties held here in the evenings.
The Sun Deck is accessible only by stairs (no lift access) from the below Crystal Deck. Midship stairs lead to the Atrium. Aft stairs lead to the indoor swimming pool area on Crystal Deck. Aft outdoor stairs connect Vista Deck with Seahorse Deck's Tender Platform (watersports marina for deploying water crafts, jet skis, kayaks).
The entire Sun Deck is enclosed by transparent glass railings and is furnished with plenty of luxury padded loungers and deck chairs for relaxation and sunbathing.
Sun Deck has three Canopy (shaded seating) areas. Canopies are retractable, which allows them to be lowered when passing under low bridges along the river.
