SeaFrance Molière Open Decks
Dec 17, 2008

There is only one outside deck level [7] accessible to the public, but this wraps around the stern & along both sides, with a fwd entrance between Le Pub & Le Relais and an another entrance aft of Le Relais. Near the stern is a further entry point which takes one down 2 decks to the Upper [Deck 5] Car Deck. [This is amusing when people coming aboard from the car deck find themselves on the outside deck areas rather than the expected interior of the vessel. Some turned around & went back down again, presumably to walk along the car deck and take a further stairwell up into the main lobby].
Seating is only on bench seats containing life-jackets. On a summer's day I would hope there are a few more chairs about, but somehow doubt it.
There is a 2 deck staircase either side afterwards which leads to a grill marked crew only atop, but also an entrance into Deck 8 aft of Les ROutiers Lounge/Coffee area - 17 December 2008
