- Cabin Type: Deluxe Outside View Stateroom with Balcony
This was the 3rd cruise this year with RCCL with another one coming up in November. We were a bit upset to find that the menu is the same on each ship. We would have expected something more Scandinavian but it was exactly the same as in the Mediterranean or the Caribbean. The quality of the food in the dining room was fine however, the Windjammer could have done with a little improvement. The selection of meats and the presentation of foods lacked a little choice, taste and style. The sushis for example were the cheapest make and the deserts nothing special. Our state room attendant was very friendly and helpful and would go out of her way to fulfill our wishes. The dining room and Windjammer staff could have done more 'service with a smile'. We had open dining therefore were served by several waiters.
We loved the choice of ports. It was an exciting cruise with beautiful towns and spectacular landscapes.
Stavanger and Alesund are fascinating towns with lots of history and more to do and see than you can in the few hours in port.

BergenBergen is a big city therefore you can go sight-seeing or shopping. The market at the end of the pier is interesting, particularly the fish stalls. It's fun to sample some of their delicacies. Again it is easy to see a lot by just walking.View All 466 Bergen Cruise Port Reviews
