Boudicca Cruise Review by MathsTraveller: Brilliant time up north
Overall Member Rating
Brilliant time up north
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Newcastle (England)
We have just returned from a wonderful cruise starting in Newcastle and going to the North Cape in Norway.
The first two days were at sea, allowing us to relax. We then called at the Loften Islands before going on to Honningsvag and the North Cape. Our return trip was on the 'inside passage' between the islands along the Norwegian coast to Bergen, before the final cruise back to Newcastle. This was only possible because it was a small cruise ship.
The staff on board were absolutely wonderful and responded immediately to any requests. The food was excellent and there was even a simple menu which was available every day for anyone who did not fancy anything on the menu. We never needed it.
The captain said that he hoped we would be able to visit Trollfjord, which is only accessible to small cruise ships, and this was a magical experience for everyone on board. To make a u-turn in a tiny fjord is something special.
For those who wanted it, there was More always plenty to do on board and for those who wanted to just sit quietly and read there was the opportunity. Although the tours seemed expensive they were no more costly than making private arrangements; it is just that Norway is a very expensive country. Less
