Wanted to see northern lights in Iceland but was way to expensive to stay in Iceland. Cruise was a cheaper and nicer way to travel plus saw faroes, shetlands, orkneys and London as a bonus. Traveled from Canada to Amsterdam to meet cruise. So... great ship for older people, very wheelchair and handicap assessable. Crew where constantly cleaning ship to prevent outbreaks which I came across on other cruises. Crew where very friendly and food was for the most part nice. ( would definitely recommend on ship restaurants to buffet.) Breakfast at buffet was not the best. Sausages ,bacon , eggs under cooked. Tea time was very enjoyable, Cons Not a lot of stores on ship, but my husband liked that. Planned on board events could have been better organized. Could not participate in some limited person art classes as people showed up super early and sign up list was ignored. Had some price problems with new drink package but was resolved. Disembarking was messy as it bottle necked at the one exit. Pros Older people... no kids. Rooms where nice and clean. Interesting events. Reasonable price trip.

Cabin Review

Cabin 5139
Cabin was spacious and clean. Turn down service each nite with towel animal on bed and next day event planner. Cupboards where roomy. Bathroom worked and was reasonable size.
