Sail Date: Aug 2012

We spent 1 1/2 days in Tromso on our own prior to embarking. The Arctic Church and the cable car to top of mountain to overlook all of Tromso and surrounds are musts!

From embarkation to debarkation, this was a terrific trip.

LOVED the small size of ship. Our cabin #311, low & midships gave us a smooth ride (except for one rolling night when everyone was bouncing!) The staff/crew were great! Rueben kept us ship-shape in the cabin. Dinesh, our butler, couldn't do enough for us, especially when BOTH of us were sick with flu AND seasick at the same time--ugh. The ship's Dr. was a blessing. They all looked after us like family.

Cabin Review

Cabin Exp

Cabin 311. 275s.f. Great location on the ship, starboard side. Large enough for two, not cramped. Large picture window, quiet location. Brochures state two beds make into Queen, but it's actually more like a King.
