Lofoten Cruise Review by arcticbell
- Sail Date: June 2018
- Destination: Norwegian Fjords
The Norwegian scenery was wonderful, helped by the unusual good weather we had. The Lofoten itself totally lived up to my expectations. I loved the décor, and the friendly informal atmosphere on board.
I had a Polar Outside cabin and paid a single supplement, The cabin was small but it was OK. The cabin is basically just for sleeping in after all. If all you want to do is sit somewhere there are plenty of places on board ship.
There was no onboard entertainment, which for me was part of the attraction. But that won't suit everybody.
The food was excellent. There was obviously a lot of fish but it was wonderful. Breakfast and lunch were buffet, and at dinner there was a set menu. The staff in the restaurant were friendly and helpful, and added to the atmosphere.
The excursions are expensive, well Norway is expensive, but I enjoyed the ones I did. Feedback from other passengers on trips I didn't do was also very positive.
There were a couple of occasions when the ship was rolling from side to side. I was OK but one or two passengers were seasick. Anyone prone to travel sickness should take seasickness medicine with them.
I would like to do the trip again, but at a different time of year. If I manage that then I will definitely choose the Lofoten again
