We chose this ship because it was smaller than most circa 800 guests and around 300 crew. As it transpired we felt the decision was justified as the service was first class in both the housekeeping and hotel services on board. Food was of an exceptional standard and plenty of it. Bar prices were very reasonable and the same in any of the bars and restaurants. Entertainment was very professional and would stand up to comparison with any live show on shore, this is inclusive of the singing and dancing, musicians and comedians. The various crew departments had a show night which although was an amateur night it was nonetheless extremely entertaining. All in all on board ambiance was terrific and the scenery in the Norwegian fjords was second only to Highland Scotland. There was an abundance of shore excursions should you wish to partake in or the ports visited were close enough to walk to the centres. I should add all furnishings re seating etc in the lounges were of a very high standard.

Cabin BC 8006
Cabin had two single beds ( bunks ) which were very comfortable and the bathroom had a very good shower.
