Review of SS La Venezia deck 3 (Murano)
The fore-located Hari's Bar Lounge is the boat's main lounge with a dance floor and evening program with live entertainment (music by resident duo pianist/singer) and local guests' performances. Hari's Lounge also hosts the Uniworld's onboard enrichment program, which includes cooking demonstrations, guest lectures (themed food and wine, art and music, culture, architecture, etc), crew show, port talks. A traditional pre-dinner event here is the Cruise Director’s talks providing information and tips on the next-day scheduled shore excursions (guided and complimentary provided by Uniworld) and optional tours (cost extra).
Midship-starboard is located the Captain’s Club. The small room doubles as Library and has 3 tables, a collection of books, popular board games, playing cards. The Lobby area has the ship’s Reception Desk providing 24-hour assistance, information on the daily program’s scheduled activities, Sauna/Spa reservations, and also serves the Uniworld cruise shore excursions and onboard booking programs. Guests can find here the SS La Venezia's Cruise Director. The Lobby has a small seating area with sofas.
