Norweigean fjords

Sail Date: July 2010
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Southampton

This was our first trip with a smaller cruise ship having been on previos ones carrying 3000 plus passengers.We found everything about this ship very pleasing.

Staff were excellent throughout,always smiling.

Ship was kept very clean at all times.

Food was good in Main restaurant and Palms Cafe (only ones we ate in)

Cabin was plenty big enough with very good hanging space in wardrobes, more room than on other ships.

Entertainment very varied,something to suit everyone from shows to quiet corners with background music.

This was a very friendly ship, more suited to the slighter older generation.

We would definately travel with Fred Olsen again.

Drinks onboard were very reasonable compared to other ships.

Tours were very expensive so most of our time ashore was independant.

Norway itself was a bit pricey although stunning scenery throughout. Less

Cabin review: B6078 Superior Outside

Cabin 6078 was plenty big enough with a good picture window.Good wardrobe space and drawer space.Found interior walls a bit thin, could here people next door quite loudly.
