Wanted to see the Fjiords and a cruise out of Dundee suited us perfectly. We were very surprised at the cleanliness and overall appearance of the ship as she is getting on in years. The staff were extremely polite and helpful apart from one female at reception who was a bit curt when we returned to see if our complaint of a noisy air condition unit in Cabin 7052 had been dealt with .We had put up with the noise for 2 nights and resorted to complaining. We were given another cabin despite being told by the CURT attendant that the ship was full and no other cabins were available. Quite a few gusts had a similar complaint about noise and our second Cabin 7135 was noisy as well with the noise coming from the Dining room Galley above. We put up with it but it marred an otherwise brilliant cruise.The food was excellent in the Waldorf Dining room and the Bistro food was of a good quality albeit a bit difficult o get a seat at times for Breakfast. Entertainment was average apart from the Comedian who put on 2 great shows. However bearing in mind the price of the cruise it was excellent value for Money. Both Cabins we had (both inside) were very big with spacious Bathroom and kept spotless by our cabin attendants. We visited Eindefjiord, Flam , Bergen and Newcastle before returning to Dundee. Best weather was in Newcastle with a mixture of rain and Sun in Norway.Overall an excellent trip but sadly we would not rush back on board Magellan due to the noise issue which was a common complaint .

Delighted to have seen the Fjiords
