Review of MS nickoSPIRIT deck 3 (Upper-Lounge)
The fore-located Panorama Salon is the ship's Bar Lounge - an indoor observation lounge with floor-ceiling windows, comfortable seating, its own full Bar, Library (reading corner), Tea & Coffee Corner (24-hour complimentary beverages and snacks). Entertainment options include watching movies, activities by the cruise company's onboard enrichment program (lectures and multimedia presentations on the current itinerary's shore excursions/tours, region's culture and history, port talks and discussions, themed activities (like food and wine tastings, guest artists' performances, etc).
From the Panorama Lounge is accessed a glass-walled Terrace - outdoor Observation Deck (Winter Garden) with seating and wind-protected by a glass shield.
The midship Atrium is with a transparent glass floor and grand staircase. Sliding doors (portside and starboard) open to smoking-allowed areas with railings. In the Atrium is also the Boutique Shop (portside).
Aft is the ship's second Restaurant (Steakhouse/Bistro & Bar) that provides specialty dining with al-la-carte priced menus. The aft Restaurant has floor-ceiling windows and a small seating capacity, so dinner reservations are required.
Upper Deck cabins from 301 to 335, all of which are French Balcony Staterooms in categories OD (2-Bett Oberdeck), OV (OD - 2-Bett Oberdeck-vorn/forward) and OX (OD - 2-Bett Oberdeck-achtern/aft).
