We had an Aqua class cabin on Deck 9, which was fine except for the 'overhang', which made the balcony/stateroom a bit dark and obliterated some of the mountain views. There was also a bit of noise from above in the early morning. Unfortunately we experienced rough seas on one day, which stopped us from visiting Olden but we spent a bit longer in Alesund. All the ports of call were lovely and we didn't have to use tenders at any of them - the ports were also within walking distance of the ship, apart from in Bergen where free shuttle buses were used. The only shore excursion we took was on the Flam railway, which was excellent. The rest of the time we took 'Hop on Hop off' buses.
We thoroughly enjoyed the food in Blu and found the staff to be super efficient and very courteous and the ambience in the restaurant was lovely. Also had a meal in SS United States which, although quite expensive, was excellent and the staff were super attentive! We also thoroughly enjoyed most of More
the entertainment, which was music/musical based and the Cruise Director, Alejandro was excellent - a real character! Couldn't quite understand Michael's Club, which was always locked and therefore unused - it seemed like a waste of what could be good space. Everything ran like clock work though and we enjoyed it so much that we booked on board to go on Constellation next year to the Black Sea ... can't wait! Less
