We chose this cruise because of the ports and itinerary. The ship did not have an indoor pool or theatre. Both were outdoors. Going to the northern UK is too cold for outdoor amenities, so this was truly disappointing to us. The staterooms, food, condition of the ship and service were good. The staff was friendly and helpful. We felt safe and cared for. The ship excursions were quite expensive compared to our last 2 cruises. As a result we booked with private tours. This was a positive experience. We had not done this before. The ports were wonderful. Due to a port strike the ship had to cancel their stop at Le Havre, France. We were therefore not able to tour the beaches of Normandy and the American Museum. Since this was one of the reasons we had chosen this particular cruise, we were disappointed to say the least.
