  • Sail Date: Apr 2016
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

We actually embarked in Dundee but it doesn't show on the options.This is a great holiday for those over forty.The ship was kept immaculate the staff were attentive and the food was abundant and very appetising. The Waldorf restaurant served 5 course dinners with coffee with several choices for each course. If you do not like dressing for dinner you can go to Raffles which is buffet style. We went there for breakfast and lunch great choice and very tasty. Afternoon tea is also served there with sandwiches and cakes. If you are still hungry after this they had a chocolate buffet one night with magnificent sculpture in chocolate and a gala buffet on another with savoury treats.

This was the friendliest cruise we have been on being mostly Geordies and Scots no airs and graces although plenty of opportunity to dress up. Drinks are reasonably priced entertainment was of a good standard the onboard entertainment team and orchestra put on a different performance each night. Alan Wright the speaker did several talks and was very entertaining and Alan Brown the comedian did make me laugh.

The disco was great playing mostly 60's and 70's music. The best thing was no kids! Had a different cocktail every day the CMV is to die for. The only minus was the excursions in Norway they are not very exciting but the scenery is fantastic. It is very expensive in Norway you need a gold card to buy anything. If you go at this time of the year it is very cold and you do need to take appropriate clothing. I highly recommend this cruise line and will try them again somewhere warmer.
