This was the first time i had ever cruised , i went with the hubby and 2 older children (20 + 16) nan and grandad.All i can say is we had a fabulous time fromstart to finish. Yes the cabin was basic but no more than i had imagined and i dont know about others but our holidays are not spent in a cabin. The ship was spotless if you stood still long enough you would have been cleanedtoo. All staff were extremely pleasant and helpful our cabins serviced twice a day.
Entertainment.... we spent most of our time(when not viewing the amazing scenery) in Liberties bar. The entertainment staff were great Gavin had us in stitches on more than one occasion.Adam and shaneece ran thing to perfection helped out by luke. As a family we thoroughly enjoyed it and in fact on our last day we wefe discussing was there anything to moan about 6 of us agreed......NO
Food was hot, fresh and you can eat from 7am throgh to 1am there was amply choice and the usual variety that any 4* hotel would offer. We had upgraded FOC to all inclusive and the range of drinks on offer could not be argued with and usual to all inclusive hotels, some reviews point out upselling , yes we did get asked did we want a photo,ice cream,champagne drinks a quick no and thats the upselling over not uncomfortable at all.
Norway was stunning beautiful scenery for 3 days. We took the flam railway full day trip, yes it was expensive initially but the thought of going to Norway and not doing it didnt seem right. We thought it was value for money, the tour guide very informative and the lunch provided by a 4* picturesque hotel.
We are now converted cruisers.
Very clean and serviced twice a day .
