Review of MS Monarch Governess deck 3 (Royal)
At the ship’s bow is located the “Outside Viewing Deck”. This is an open-air observation area (with tables and chairs) accessed from the Affinity Lounge via floor-ceiling doors.
“Panorama Lounge & Bistro” is the Affinity ship’s main entertainment venue combined with a casual dining bistro. It has a full-service bar with premium spirits, a self-serve beverage station (complimentary premium coffee/tea/hot chocolate), and a live evening show program. Evening entertainment options include piano performances by a resident pianist, crew show, cocktail hour, local performers (folklore show, a classical recital, dancers, musicians). Depending on the visited ports along the Avalon Affinity itinerary, the Panorama Lounge hosts local food and wine tastings, tours/excursions- and culture/history related lectures and multimedia presentations by guest speakers. Afternoon Tea is served here at 4 pm.
Deck 3 has the ship’s 2-decks high Atrium (Lobby level) with an open-floor design. The Affinity Atrium is very spacious and glass-domed (with natural daylight). Part of the Lobby is the Reception Desk (24-hour assistance, information), Internet Corner (with 2 Internet computers, small Library), and the Cruise Director Office (tours/excursions booking, information on daily activities, and special events).
Royal Deck cruise cabins from 301 to 328, of which 24 are French Balcony rooms (category P) and 4 Avalon Suites (category JR).
After passenger cabins is the ship’s Hair Salon (styling and manicures; hairstylist available by appointment only, no spa/masseuse services).
The “Club Lounge” (aft location) is a stylishly furnitured indoor observation lounge with floor-ceiling panoramic windows and nightly live entertainment.
