Review of MS Otto Sverdrup deck 7 (Bridge-Spa-Pool)
The fore-located Navigation Bridge (aka Wheelhouse) and the adjacent Captain’s Suite and officers quarters are inaccessible to passengers.
The aft-located Sundeck/pool deck has a large swimming pool (with heated water) flanked by 2 Jacuzzies (spa pools/outdoor hot tubs). The pool deck has plenty of sunloungers and small tables with chairs.
The midship-located Fredheim Restaurant has large windows but with partially obstructed (by lifeboats) views. Fredheim is the ship's 3rd dining venue, open all day and offering international "street food". Fredheim is complimentary only for Suite passengers.
The ship’s wellness centre includes Fitness, Outdoor Gym, 2 Saunas (men/women), locker rooms with showers, reception desk, Spa and Beauty Salon (massage room, hairdresser-barber services, face-nail services and treatments). The Fitness is a 2-room gym (open between 6 am - 12midnight) equipped with a stepper machine, an elliptical machine, treadmills, rowers, exercise bikes, free weights, weight machines, medicine balls, yoga mats.
Deck 7 also has forward-located cruise cabins from U2-701 to U2-708 all of which are category U2-Outside staterooms.
