Ship Facts: Midnatsol Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Hoping To See the Northern Lights.
Food: no choice . Acceptable but not very inspiring. Very poor service from an argumentative waiter who told us we should eat what we were given. Couldn't cope with a request for "no fish" Wine at about £45 a bottle in the "wine package" was rather pricey. The little cafe was lovely - but expensive.

Safety : On at least 12 occasions we had to walk on treacherous surfaces - often carrying and wheeling luggage. Walking up to the midnight concert at Tromso was on snow and ice up a steep path. Some of the party were on sticks.

Security: Very little - a suitcase was taken from a passemger and rifled. It would have been very easy to get on and off our ship.

Lifeboat drill :A good talk- how sensible to have lifejackets at muster stations rather than in cabins.

Radisson Blu Hotel Tromso : excellent - put the Midnatsol in the shade!

Flights: We spent an extra three and a half hours getting to Tromso because of snow on the runway....... On the return we waited for over an hour to start checking in due to malfunctioning computers and lack of staff - appalling.

Trips We got stuck in a coach behind one that had gone off the road and never made it to the North Cape. The cable car ride to the mountain restaurant for a meal cost £75 pp and didn't include a glass of wine with the uninspiring food and watery coffee.
