Visiting Norway has always been on my bucket list. I am so glad we went.
Ship overall: We have travelled with Princess (Ruby and Crown), Carnival (Spirit), MSC (Fantasia), Costa (Deliziosa), P&O (Pacific Dawn), Celebrity (Reflection), Royal Caribbean (Legend of the Seas). One thing we have learned is that, in the end, it's all much of a muchness. And much depends on your own attitude. Keep that song "don't worry, be happy" as your theme song for each trip :)
Embarkation: Extremely quick, however there were fingerprints all over the glass table in our mini suite and the promised embarkation champagne was quite late to arrive. I think that our stewart was simply pressed for time - we were one of the first on board and were probably among the first to visit our cabin.
Pretty typical for a cruise ship. No complaints, really.
