Sail Date: Jun 2016
MV Marco Pollo
Geothermal activity area on the Shore excursion from Akureyri - The JEWELS OF THE NORTH
Gullfoss Waterfall - the largest in Iceland. Shore Excursion - The Golden Circle
Sunset over Lerwick - Last Port of Call and just leaving for Hull.

My wife had never experienced a small ship cruise before and having sailed with Princess, Celebrity and Cunard it would have been easy to consider this a lesser experience.
