A smaller ship than most cruise ships and somewhat old by comparison but nonetheless the overall facilities where very good. Our cabin was twin berthed (could have been for 4) and adequate, not as luxurious as the more modern ships. It was adequate for our needs but you would not want to spend hours in it apart from sleeping. The public area's where very clean and despite the ship being full there was plenty of seating. Breakfast and lunch were self-service and the food couldn't be faulted. The evening meal was formal (by choice) and service and food was excellent. For the fjord cruise there are advantages to a smaller ship as it can get to area's the larger ships cannot reach. The excursions in Norway where particularly expenses for what they were - I suspect the Norwegian economy and the limited season has something to do with this - they were however interesting and enjoyable. Entertainment was good but does not have the sparkle of the shows on the big ships. Overall we had a very good cruise and would travel with Fred Olsen again but to some extent you do get what you pay for - this is at the cheaper end but represents good value for money.
