Sail Date: Mar 2010

We have just returned from the Northern Lights cruise and were extremely lucky to have an excellent view of them.

This was our first cruise and to be honest probably our last. We are used to renting a self catering apartment and a car to do our own thing. The cruise reminded us of Butlins from the seventies, set times for everything and rather dated entertainment, although the duo in Scotts bar during the evening were very good, particularly Lilli Moore, the singer ( I recommend her rendition of Mack the Knife)

The food was very good and the staff, apart from the odd one, were excellent although the officers were a bit standoffish.

Cabin Review

Compact, clean with sufficient storage space. The TV was small and old however you can turn it off and listen to the conversation from the occupants in the next cabin as there is no soundproofing.
