The lights

Arrived back from the Northern Lights trip on Aurora yesterday with mixed feelings.

In general the holiday was very good and whilst I would certainly not criticise any of the staff on board I was disappointed with the ship. I know that many people dislike the big ships, but for a tour like this where the outside decks were not particularly accessible for a lot of the time I found it claustrophobic. We were very relieved to have a balcony cabin.

On the 12 night cruise there were several days when the outside decks were closed and even when they weren’t it was so cold and windy that it was quite unpleasant to spend much time outside. This put a lot of pressure on the inside areas.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower

Cabin DA

Decent sized balcony cabin and reasonably kitted out (except for the coat hangers (see review)

Poor choice of channels on the T V

Port Reviews

Andalsnes

Mountaineering Centre is worth a visit but not much more in the town so you need to do a trip
