Morning Light Pub - Lounge Deck 7

The Morning Light Pub, named after Fred. Olsen's largest sailing ship, is located midships on Lounge Deck 7 between the Palms Café & Library. Extending the full width of Balmoral, there is a single entrance to aft, with the bar to starboard & entrance either side fwd.

The focal point is a model of the 1891 built "Morning Light". The Pub is full of pictures of previous Olsen vessels & panels between the benched alcoves are decorated with yet more.

The bar is open from 11:00 to 01:00 with live music at lunchtime & throughout the evening. The pub is also used as a hospitality meeting point for singles get-togethers; find someone to go ashore with etc; Masons & Service Club Meetings are also held here.

This is situated in the new mid section & I found the room lacked atmosphere, almost 'cold' during the day & early evening. Due to the layout of the furniture people tended to sit all around the edges forming a square, staring across the room at each other, not using the stools, thereby making social conversation awkward. A bit of shifting of furniture could do the trick & I am sure this will become a favourite watering hole. Maybe a few of the daily quizzes should be held here, rather than all in the Observatory Lounge.
