The Sun Deck has a large shaded seating area with deckchairs (covered by a large retractable awning) and multiple loungers for outdoor relaxation. It offers unobstructed 360° panoramic views for enjoying the scenery along the MS Vasco de Gama cruise itinerary route on river Douro.
Unlike most of the CroisiEurope ships, this riverboat has no bicycles (used free of charge on organized or individual excursions ashore). This boat also had an aft-location swimming pool (with a surrounding sunbathing area) both removed during the refit and refurbishment in 2009.
In the morning, guests can participate in a group exercise class.
The ship’s top deck is accessible only by stairs.
