Fore-located are the Navigation Bridge (called Wheelhouse on smaller ships and riverboats) and the adjacent Captain's Suite and officers quarters. The Wheelhouse is operated with open-bridge policy that allows passengers to visit the facility during the cruise and observe how the Captain (officers on duty) navigate the vessel. The Captain and Bridge officers will restrict access to the Wheelhouse during port arrivals and departures, and also during times of emergencies and complicated navigation. When visiting the Bridge, passengers are advised to keep noise to a minimum as to not distract the watch officers from doing their jobs efficiently. Eating, drinking and smoking in this room is forbidden.
