Sail Date: Jan 2018

I went with a friend to see the northern lights.

Transfers were smooth.

The cabin ( a mini suite) was just adequate. I would have hated being in one of the smaller cabins. Cleanliness was just ok. Norovirus was rife on the ship and I felt the cleaning of the public places (eg hand rails, chairs) left a lot to be desired. Pool and Jacuzzi closed because of Norovirus

Cabin Review

Cabin Mini suite

Lock not working on arrival and had to be fixed. No safe deposit box despite being assured there was one! Even the staff on board couldn't find it! It was missing and not replaced. Generally clean but under the bed previous occupants debris! Would have hated being in a smaller cabin!

Norovirus was rife on the ship and I do not think there was adequate cleaning of public places eg handrails, chairs etc. Sadly I succumbed on my return flight and I wonder whether I will ever cruise again!
