Sail Date: Feb 2017

For the chance to see the Northern lights and Norway in the winter. In that capacity the cruise was all I hoped for, as Cruise & Maritime had no part in the splendor of nature.

The food was of a poor standard, pork on the menu turned to ham,sword fish was black, all meats were over cooked, vegetables came in very small amounts, On one menu the great British pub grub was Bavarian meat loaf or spam to you and me. Drinks waiters did not understand that if you wanted a whisky and ginger you do not have a whole can of ginger ale (330ml) pored on top prices were on the high side even for in house brands.

Dining table waiters were unhelpful slow to serve each course and did not stay around to check if every thing was all right, so if you had a complaint you had to wait until he came back to clear the plates.I complained one night and tolled so the chef got it wrong, a shrug of the shoulders and gone.
