Chose this cruise as not too far from home and for destination. Wanted an easy option this year and would say this was. We are looking to see what works best for us in terms of solo travelling- family grown and we did like the ease of this cruise. Not that impressed with ship and unlikely revisit- not put off Cruise Maritime and would look at other options/ships. Keen to do Baltic cruise. The joy is seeing something new every time we enter port and this is what appeals to us about cruising. Positives- Food, overall very good. Good cabin space and spotlessly clean. Overall enjoyed excursions.The Fjords are stunning and do not disappoint whatever the weather. Negative points- some staff surly. Dis-organised, chaotic lifeboat drill. Disembarking at ports less than efficient. Entertainment mediocre- half heart attempt we felt. How can you have a 'Sinatra Lounge' and never hear Sinatra in there! Pianist needs to play wider style sets. Music in Bistro soul destroying- depressing and on a continuous loop that they do not bother to change. On the whole good value but we did get a cheaper deal, not sure would be so OK if had paid full price.

Wonderful Fjords- bit disappointing on board!
