Breathtaking scenery!

Sail Date: July 2013
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Copenhagen
This was a lovely 12-day cruise of Norway, Scotland and Ireland. The scenery in the fjords was breathtaking. We were fortunate that the weather was good.

The port stops were great, except for the Shetland Islands. As far as I am concerned this port could be taken off the itinerary and replaced with either a stop in Belfast or an overnight in Dublin. As for the Dunmore East (Waterford) port, while pleasant there is really not much to see there.

We went on a tour that was called "Mousa Island Discovery", which was the worst tour I have ever taken. Aside from the brach structure on the island which dates from the stone age the only thing that we discovered was sheep poop EVERWHERE!! You had to keep your head down in order to avoid stepping on poop. The ferry boat that takes you to the island is more like an old tugboat. After we returned to the mainland we had to wait 45 minute for the bus to come and pick us up. It should have been waiting for us when we arrived. More

We went on an excellent tour in the outskirts of Dublin called "A Walk on the Wow Side", with a wonderful guide named Tanya. She told us delightful stories about the people and places. This tour is a two-hour walking tour. There were only 16 people on the tour - you need to be quite fit to do this tour as it entails walking up hills and walking down about 240 steps. If you can handle the walk, then go for this tour!

We also went on a very interesting tour of Vigeland Park, the Viking Museum and the Kon-tiki Museum. Lots of fascinating information!

We ate dinner twice at the Tamarind, the Asian restaurant on the 11th floor. The food was great with a lovely view of the fjords.

On this ship a portion of the mid-ship pool deck is now allocated to pay-for-use cabanas, of which I am not a fan, as this cuts down on the available lounge space for everyone else. These cabanas were never fully-occupied.

Ian provided excellent scenic cruising as we cruised along the fjords. He does the commentary from the Crow's Nest. However, his commentary frequently co-incided with Happy Hour so it was hard to hear him over the the boistrous noise of the drinkers.

The cruise director Eric was wonderful, with a great sense of humour! Less
