Review of MS Mayfair deck 4 (Upper-Bridge-Lounge)
Navigation Bridge (called “Wheelhouse” on riverboats) and the officers quarters are with bow-location. The area is not passenger-accessible.
The Mayfair’s “Bel Air” Lounge (all indoor seating arrangement) is a most spacious Observation Lounge with its own bar, classy furniture, and plenty of seating area with comfortable sofas, chairs, and small tables. It has panoramic floor-ceiling windows and it’s partially covered by the Sky Light glass roof. The Bel Air Lounge also hosts Egypt tours-culture-history related lectures and talks led by a professional Egyptologist. The onboard multimedia presentations are all Egypt themed: dynasties and treasures, building techniques, hieroglyphics, archaeology (excavations), Egyptian keywords, and phrases (language basics).
The Lounge Bar serves alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, with a variety of specialty cocktails and a selection of wines. Know, that guests are not allowed to bring their own food or drinks on board from outside the ship.
Boutique Shop in the Atrium sells Egypt souvenirs and gifts, books and magazines, stamps and postcards, Egypt archaeology themed (itinerary-based) videos, luxury jewelry (18-carat gold silver items).
Hairdresser / Beauty Salon is at extra charge (reservations are required).
