Nice itinerary in Norwegian fjords. Brand new Ship, of high quality. Beautiful and comfortable cabin. Very nice in-room entertainment with many movies. Nice restaurants: The Dining Room is beautiful, but service is below average. Lunch from 12 till 1pm (!!) is at least not practical. Lido Market is nice idea but rowdy and not easy to find a table. Pinnacle, Sel de Mer & is very nice. Culinary Arts Center & Canaletto were somewhat disappointing, while Tamarind was top. Explorations Cafe is nice with panoramic views. New York Deli & Pizza & Dive in are very good for the kids. Very good fitness center with many interesting venues and programs. Spa is also very nice! I have the impression that swimming pools are small for this ship. Another comment has to do with the gala nights which are not announced in advance... this way makes things complicated as we had already reserved our dinners, so we did not have the chance to join the gala evenings. Over all nice ship, we already planned our next cruise with Koningdam.
