Review of SS Sao Gabriel deck 3 (Azores-Lobby-Lounge-Suites)
Forward on Azores Deck is the Bow Terrace (an outdoor area without seating) which is accessible via the adjacent Bar Lounge. The boat's main lounge offers 180-degree views and plenty of comfortable seating. All beverages served here are complimentary, as well as light food, afternoon snacks, brand coffees, alcoholic beverages, nonalcoholic drinks - all provided free of charge and throughout the day. Lounge's nightly entertainment includes performances by a resident piano player. Daily entertainment options include port talks/briefings (by the Uniworld Cruise Director), cooking classes, food demonstrations, lectures and media presentations, bingo and trivia games.
Midship on Deck 3 is the boat's Lobby Hall with the Cruise Director's Office, Boutique Shop and Reception Desk (24-hour guest assistance and services).
Midship and aft are located cruise cabins from 301 to 317, all of which are in suite categories. All Azores Deck staterooms are Suites, including 4x midship-located Grand Suites (boat's largest accommodations). SS Sao Gabriel's Suites are all with French balconies and large living areas. For the first time on Douro River, Uniworld's SS Sao Gabriel Suite booking customers enjoy a dedicated butler service offered on other Uniworld river cruise ships deployed in Europe.
One elevator (forward-midship) interconnects all decks.
