Imaq Dining Room, Bistro, Lecture Halls & Entrance Hall - Decks 3 & 4

The Imaq Dining Room, aft on Deck 4, was locked so these pictures are only taken through the glass doors. A shame as it meant I could not see the aft balcony either.
The Bistro is a small Caféteria/Buffet to port and the seating area can be used as additional seating for the Framheim Lecture Hall [double sliding doors open up]. The Polhøgda Lecture Hall was being used for an exhibition and book signing. I did not take any specific photos of the Internet Café.
The Entrance Hall on Deck 3 is rather nice and incorporates the Pilot Station in one corner.

Observation Deck - Deck 8

The Observation Deck circles the mast [one can walk completely around]. It is the only fwd viewing area with glass screens for protection [or photograph hindrance, but they are only small]. The Fwd Observation Terraces on Deck 5, and Sun Deck [7] for aft views, have open railings, so a choice depending on the weather. Photos taken on a clockwise walk around from starboard; Sorry about the raindrops in some pictures, it was pouring and too wet to look upwards.
