My wife wanted to go to the North Cape. North Cape was excellent as were Trondheim , Flaam and Skoldjen . Less impressed with Tromso (closed on Sundays it seems ) and a random island stop by tender. Bergen visit was extremely curtailed due to cautious captain and a spurious tale about just finding out about the 2017 Round the Island race so can't really comment on that one . Set off for Southampton at speed and then flat slow for a while. Liked the Crown Grill a lot : good man that Borko. Good wine selection . Dining Room was fine for breakfast and dinner . Good wine selection (dinner ). Level 15 buffet always seemed like a scrum for a place to sit . Food quality not so good and lukewarm for the most part. Everything seemed stewed and overcooked to me. Lots of recycling and reappearances . Bread pudding several times on offer and always it seemed at breakfast . Some buyer must have got a good deal on a job lot of asparagus and mushrooms along the way. Shows were mixed in quality but you had to get there 30 minutes in advance to secure a seat which didn't seem appropriate. Lift doors seemed very aggressive but perhaps I'm just slowing with age.

I'm not fond of bread pudding especially for breakfast

Cabin Review

Cabin C617
Could have done with a sofa.

Liked the balcony.

Ronald was excellent.

Shower curtain is a tad old-fashioned.

Shower seemed extremely small or it may just have been a factor of my own size.
