Sail Date: Jun 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Suite

Weboarded in Stockholm after a three day stay there, we met the ship at the address stated on our paper work, we were greeted by the captain ( a very dry and funny guy) they're still looking for my luggage ( just joking) his crew who were absolutely fantastic. We had a cabin on deck 6 which was close to the main dining area, perfect for us. We chose the starboard side but in hindsight it wouldn't matter which side of the boat you're on when travelling through the Fjords the scenery was fabulous. Dining was in two areas, the formal and not so formal and both areas had everything covered, the food was sensational and a want for nothing, the food varied always with wonderful breads and desserts, the wines with the meals were just right and if one wanted something more special that was also available at a price. The room service incase one slept in for lunch or dinner was also fabulous. The bars, which I think there were 3, are fantastic the bar tenders super knowledgable and speak multiple languages of course the cocktails were included in the fare so why not a Bloody Mary at 10 am and Pisco sours in the afternoon.

The entrainment on the ship was a bit lame and boring it would have been nice if they had a dinner dance or if the musicians who played on the boat separately could have joined together in a band, I felt that the musicians and the opera singer were only there for their own holiday and a fill in. ( my opinion and really need to do some work on it)

In the morning there were yoga classes and some dance classes which were fun the teachers had a great sense of humour.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Suite

The cabin was 18 square meters with a large queen or small king size bed, we liked the fact that the bathroom and toilet were seperate rooms. The balcony was just right, with it being so cold we didn't spend much time out there anyway.

Port Reviews

Bergen

Ate reindeer hot dogs at the port took the cable car up to the viewing platform

Geiranger

E- Biked up the hill 5km to the viewing platform as helicopters were all booked out would have been fantastic if the helicopter service was running, try and book from the ship in advance

Olden

The names not an appropriate place for a birthday

Aalborg

Beautiful place to walk around

Copenhagen

Walked into town and managed a canal boat ride, it was great.

Visby

Great to walk around and stretch ones legs after a day of feasting and drinking

3 days is enough around town, the country side is so beautiful, the Vaase museum was awesome
