Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

I have to agree with ThomasUK. We have also just returned from trip to Fjords, sailing from Newcastle. From embarkation, very quick, to leaving, the staff were efficient, cheerful and helpful. Our cabin steward was excellent and couldn't do enough to help, our waiter in one of the main dining rooms was always smiling and nothing was too much trouble, his young assistant likewise. Everywhere around the ship the staff greeted the passengers with a smile. yes the ship is old but it is spotlessly clean and it is unfair to compare it to other lines, it is half the price. Food and entertainment were very good. I unfortunately needed the services of the medical team but again they were first class. Cabins are not large but enough for two people and beds were comfortable. My only complaint would be the noise from the engine during the night but that is no one's fault. All in all it was an enjoyable cruise with breath taking scenery in the fjords.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Newcastle (England)

No waiting, checked in immediately at time stated on documents. Shuttle bus outside terminal to take us to ship. Directed straight away to our cabin and cases were waiting for us.


Beautiful village. Did not take an excursion but rode on the tourist train around the local area.


The open topped bus is just outside the port gates. it is well worth the ride, the scenery is beautiful.


We did not see much of Bergen as it was a National holiday and Bergen was very crowded. There were parades and a fair and many of the people were in National Dress.
