Cenaculum is the same as triclinio?

They're not synonyms, although the lack of context should permit both answers.

A triclinium is not a room per se, just an arrangement of three (tri) couches (clinia) where rich Romans ate while reclining, just like their decadent Greek forbears.

A cenaculum is literally the room (culum) where you eat dinner (cena).

So it was taught, but I wrote it and now it was wrong.

I have read this: "Ad ripam Tiberis eo. Germani in flumen se praecipitaverunt.

How do we know if in or ad is required?

I'd like to repeat my question. I get "In triclinio advenio" marked wrong repeatedly. I need an explanation as to why. Thanks.
