Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Superior Outside

Recently did the Norwegian Fjords out of Rosyth. Enjoyed it from start to finish.

Check in and settling in went very quickly and extremely well organised. Cabin was a superior cabin with a walk in shower. Much bigger than I expected with plenty of wardrobe space. Beds and pillows extremely comfortable. Ship was spotless and a bit confusing to begin with. Plenty of lifts an£ signage. Food excellent and plentiful. Staff were excellent especially our dining waiters. They made it enjoyable. We had 4 ports in the week and as a person who uses 2 sticks for anything of any distance it worked well. Hop on hop off buses available at all ports. Bergen, Flam, Olden and Alesund. Let you see the surroundin* area and just enough time to do it. We had a ride on th3 Flam Scenic railway, it was 1 of the prebookable trips but we just bought a ticket there and did the trip.

Very friendly ship and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
