This is the first cruise that we have taken in the last ten years that did not include shore excursions, wine, and Wi-Fi in the cruise price. This was a very poor value! We booked our own shore excursions at less than half of the Windstar rate for the same tours. The "private event" was very poor - the "magnificent" caves were hardly that.

Embarkation and disembarkation were poorly organized. The first notice that we received about the transfer to the ship for embarkation included instructions on transfer to the airport instead. We had to wait one hour after disembarkation in order to finally get a taxi after the cruise director had assured us that taxis would be available.

The food was generally mediocre. Ordering ala carte items at breakfast generally resulted in extremely long waits for the food and/or not receiving what was ordered. The "seafood extravaganza" barbecue was very poor. The seafood was not fresh - crab claws were still partially frozen and the chef indicated that the lobster was from Maine. Really? These were the small 3 oz lobsters that can be purchased in the grocery store.

We booked the Concert at Troldhaugen independently at far less than the cost of the comparable Windstar excursion.


We booked the RIB adventure independently at half of the cost of the Windstar equivalent excursion.


We booked an 8-hour private tour of the Orkney Islands at half of the cost of the 4 hour Windstar tour.
