Review of MS Andorinha deck 3 (Diamond-Lobby-Lounge)
The fore-located (at the bow) Terrace is an outdoor lounge with open-air seating (tables and chairs). The Terrace is served by Panorama Bar and has direct access to Sun Deck (above).
Panorama Lounge and Bar is an indoor lounge with floor-ceiling windows, comfortable seating, and a complimentary beverage station (tea/coffee, mineral, and carbonated water, biscuits, pastries). Lounge’s evening entertainment program features live performances by guest entertainers (local musicians and dancers boarding the ship), talent shows (by the crew), night dancing parties. The Lounge also serves Tauck River Cruises' enrichment program by hosting daily lectures, media presentations, and port talks (by boat’s Tauck Cruise Director) related to the cruise tour itinerary (ports and excursions offered ashore).
In the Lobby area (midship) between the Bar Lounge and the Suites are located 2 ship entrances (portside and starboard embarkation/debarkation areas), Reception (24-hour Guest Services Desk providing assistance, cashier services, information on daily scheduled tours and onboard activities), Cruise Director Office, and Shop (selling hand-made souvenirs, occasion gifts, travel essentials). Reception Desk also serves Tauck's excursions/tours and future cruise booking programs.
Aft is the lower level of Sun Deck's outdoor lounge.
Cruise cabins from 301 to 315, most of which are Category 5 French Balcony Suites plus two smaller (aft-located) Category 4 French Balcony cabins. In all these cabins, floor-ceiling sliding windows open to a railing (false balcony).
All cabin decks are connected via a staircase and an elevator. Smaller (aft) staircases connect Deck 3 with Deck 2 and Sun Deck. Four outside staircases connect Deck 3 with Sun Deck (above).
