Review of MS Roald Amundsen deck 6 (Promenade-Dining-Lobby-Science)
- Observation Deck (fore-located Indoor Explorer Deck, lower level 1 of 2) is glass-enclosed (with wall-to-wall windows) and connected (via inside stairs) with the Outdoor Observation Deck (on deck 7 above). It also has access to deck 6's Outdoor Walking Deck, thus forming a small Promenade Deck in the ship's forward section.
- The Lobby area on Deck 6 houses the Reception Desk (24-hour guest service), Tour Office (expeditions booking and information) and Boutique Shop (selling hand-made souvenirs, special occasion gifs, Hurtigruten logo merchandise).
- Fredheim Restaurant (capacity 71 seats, aft-portside location) is a Bistro (casual dining lounge) named after Villa Fredheim (early-20th-century hunting station on Spitsbergen Island). Fredheim Restaurant offers light snacks and beverages (in a lounge seating) and has a separate buffet dining area.
- The aft-located Aune Restaurant (Aune Main Dining) is the ship's complimentary Dining Room (capacity 234 seats) with floor-ceiling windows, buffet station in the middle, self-service beverage station (for coffee-tea-juices), an outdoor seating area (alfresco terrace). The Galley / Kitchen is adjacent to the Restaurant. Aune Restaurant serves complimentary Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Breakfast is buffet-style (bacon, eggs, sausages, cold meats, cheeses, seafood, bread selection, cereals, fruits, porridge). Lunch is also buffet-style (salads, soups, hot/cold meats, seafood, vegetables, desserts). Dinner is 2-seating and waiter-served (3-course menu, including traditional Scandinavian dishes). Wine by the bottle is offered at extra cost. Hurtigruten has a wine package available for purchase at the Reception.
The fore-located Amundsen Science Centre (on the below photo) is an Activity Center (large "scientific lounge" / research lab) packed with high-tech gadgets (including microscopes and touch screens) and latest digital technology equipment. The venue consists of Library, Lecture Halls, Photo Center (photo- and video-processing studio), Conference Room, Expedition Team Room, dedicated areas for themed educational activities (workshops in biology, marine life, geography, photography, etc). Hurtigruten's Expedition Team provides here passengers with scientific information and technology assistance.
