Picked up a 'two for one' deal to the Fjords. I was expecting a rusty old tub. What we experienced was a well maintained, tastefully decorated ship with plenty to offer. Cabin was a good size with plenty of storage. The steward was very friendly, efficient and pleasant. Activities were varied (although some of the answers to the quizzes were questionable in their accuracy). Talks were good, cocktail tasting was great. Excursions were plentiful and ticked all the scenery boxes. Dining was good. Food was of a high standard and served with a smile. Entertainment was extremely good. Especially the dancers!!! If there were any criticisms it would be that the outside windows could be cleaner (and the overpainting/putty on the glass could do with cleaning off) and wifi more widely available.

A Very Pleasant Surprise
