Perfect ending

We chose the Vesteralen because not being a fan of crowds and large cruise ships, her size fitted us perfectly. From the moment we checked in until our disembarkation 12 days later, we were charmed and totally satisfied with the entire experience. The crew are happy and helpful, the food was well presented, varied and delicious, and the ship was extremely comfortable. Our cabin was small, but accommodated us perfectly. There was adequate space for us to unpack and stow our luggage, plenty of hot water, and comfortable beds.

We loved sitting in the panorama lounge watching the coastline pass by at a leisurely 15 knots, the opportunity to get of the ship several times a day, the exposure to Norweigen life, food and traditions. Announcements were made when there was something special to see outside, and the back observation deck afforded unobstructed views.

We enjoyed all of the well planned and executed excursions we took.

Cabin Review

Cabin Not sure

Perfect size, cozy and comfortable. The drawers were a little hard to open and close, but we managed. It was nice to have the cabin so well cleaned every morning, and the extra bed folded up.
