Wanted to visit the North Cape during the Summer Solstice. The weather was mostly good but cold in the Artic, so take a range of clothes. We really loved the scenery and the cruise exceeded our expectations in the beauty of the surroundings.
We enjoyed the food and the staff onboard were excellent. The International Cafe was well used but we did not like the layout and thought the addition of a few more comfortable chairs in this area would make it more inviting.
We now sail mostly on Celebrity and feel the welcome back event was very poor compare to Celebrity. We were ignored most of the time even though we spoke to a senior member of staff asking to be served with some food or a drink, in the end we left the event early. The Captain's Club is also much better on Celebrity.
Very deep balcony. Cabin was comfortable and was very clean. Be warned if you have free drinks package you will be charged if you drink the water in the room which I thought was rather mean.
