Sail Date: Jan 2018

We chose a cruise for the first time this holiday as I have a disabled foot, yet still the instinct to roam beyond my usual experience, and I also enjoy to sketch and paint as we go! We chose the 'Classic Round Voyage' with London Gatwick flights - to Norway's Fjords and the hoped for Northern Lights.

We are not used to travelling in groups, especially of our own age, but were quickly aware of most peoples shared enthusiasms and friendliness. The ship was a stimulating space as Jan's Lectures and the whole excursions teams advice was enticing.

We attended an Art Nouveau walk and later a Viking Feast in a traditional long house which enacted a gentle pageant, feasted us all, and allowed us to have a brief interaction with their authentic artefacts, before we exited through the snowy night past Vikings holding flames aloft!

Cabin Review

Cabin J2D

Our comfortable above water cabin had a double bed and plenty of clothes storage space, a kettle for teas and coffee and an en suite shower, wash basin and loo. We peeped out from behind two lifeboats and then went on deck to view the panoramic scene for real.
