Don't listen to all the people who complained. It's a brand new ship that was inaugurated only in May 2016, it looks new,it smells new and it is new! Very good, excellent service, food was beyond expectations. Family room was a little bit crowdy but you don't feel it since the whole day you're out. Plan your shore excursions yourself, otherwise you will have to pay a lot of money. For example, I ordered a car in Alesund for $50 a day with Budget and could fit the whole family with us. Otherwise it would have costed me $180 per person to go for the Troll ride trip which was spectacular. Entertainment was excellent, big variety from classic music to jazz to blues to pop. Staff is very friendly. Shops are just OK but just a few, nothing really to buy. Gala nights are exceptional. Scenic fjord cruise was very nice,and you get to hear the explanations from the location guide. Always hot water in the bath/shower. Carpets and rooms don't smell. Don't think twice!

Outstanding
