Review of SS Bon Voyage deck 7 (River Royale deck3-La Gironde)

Salon Gascogne is the boat’s Main Lounge & Bar. This is an indoor observation and show lounge with comfortable seating (tables, tub chairs, armchairs), dance floor, full-service bar (named Aquitaine Bar), and stage for the live evening entertainment. In the evenings, here are offered live music performances by the resident duo (pianist/singer) and by local guests (post-dinner show). During the day, Salon Gascogne hosts the Uniworld Cruises’ enrichment program, which includes cooking demonstrations and guest lectures (themed food and wine, art and music, culture, architecture, etc). A traditional pre-dinner event here is the Cruise Director’s talks. They offer information and tips about the next-day scheduled Uniworld excursions (complimentary) and optional tours (cost extra) ashore.

In the Gasgogne Lounge’s forward section, there are 2 doors leading to staircases that access the Sun Deck’s forward section. In the Lounge, there is a 24-hour station for complimentary specialty coffee/tea (with cookies and candies). A portside stair-lift links Deck 3 to the Sun Deck 4.
