Review of Travelmarvel Sapphire deck 3 (Upper-Lounge-Lido)
The fore-located Panorama Lounge is the boat's Salon-Bar (show lounge) with floor-ceiling windows, comfortable seating, dance floor, electronic piano. The Salon-Bar also serves the cruise company's onboard enrichment program and entertainment offers live music performances, crew shows, playing cards, and board games, bingo, popular quizzes, themed dance parties (in the evenings). Open bar and table drinks like draft beers, house wines, soft drinks (sodas, juices, mineral water), tea, and coffee (from 8 am to 12-midnight) are provided complimentary (included in the cruise fares). The traditional Captain's Reception (cocktail party) is a formal event held in the Lounge.
In the Foyer (lobby area upper level 2 of 2) are the ship's Tour Desk (shore excursions and tours booking, itinerary information), Internet Cafe (with 2 computers and 1 printer), Library (reading lounge with books, puzzles, board games) and Hair Salon (hairdresser-barber services).
