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. Evening shows were enjoyable with different show each night. Disembarking was made easy by the well used routine. We were off the ship by 9am and on our way home.
