Book Discussion Location Sugestions

Recommended Posts

Our roll call would like to hold an informal book discussion for our upcoming cruise on the Marina. There are about 10 of us. Where would be a good, out of the way place for us to meet?  It would be an afternoon on a sea day.Thanks for any suggestions!

Horizons if you do it early.

They start setting up for afternoon tea by 2:30 or so.

Martini’s may not be very busy at that time either.

Check with the concierge.

I'm always amazed at how little use the Grand Bar gets, after lunch but before dinner.  Perhaps because, despite its' moniker, cocktails go begging there, unless a waiter is summoned from the nearby Casino Bar. 

Make sure not to conflict with the string quartet which plays there, occasionally.  😇x_125505.jpg

It is  not really conducive to groups  for conversations  & not problem getting drinks  there is always a roving waiter or  waitress

to me it is more of a  hall with seating

there  are a couple of  seating areas  near reception  that could  work  but no services  there if you wanted  drinks   so Martinis or Horizons  would  be the best  places

Maybe the Card Room. I don't think it gets much use.

 

Perhaps if the weather is nice one of the Sanctuary areas on deck 14 would work depending on the size of your group.

Thank you for all of the helpful suggestions! I think we'll go with one of the bar areas. Although I will look around once onboard for a place we could move to if we are fortunate to have a nice day.

If you say pretty please and meet at a favorable time, you might be able to use a specialty restaurant. Other than that, my guess is that the Card Room just might be empty.

The card room is practical but it is such a cold, sterile place. Maritini's or Horizons are nicer, IMO.
