We chose the cruise for the total Norwegian itinerary and were not disappointed particularly as the weather was perfect throughout. The facilities on board were excellent but the management of the Pool deck re opening time for a pre breakfast swim were appalling with complaints from many clients being ignored by senior officers. Food was variable dependent on restaurant visited.MDR was the best food and service we have experienced in 20 yearsof Silversea cruising.The variety on the menu was excellent,nothing repeated in 15 days,and we were provided with favourite menu by giving 24 hours notice to the excellent Maitre d. La Terrazza was average food and service and we cancelled remaining three reservations after first visit. Hot Rocks was very good at lunchtime with an interesting and varied menu plus quality service.Evening menu was boring unless you liked large pieces of meat and chips. Entertainment in the theatre was average but acceptable after a superb MDR dinner. The crew were excellent but there were signs that the numbers were less and more was being asked of them which may be an early sign of the effects of the takeover by RC.HOPE NOT!! eg Sunbeds and covers left out overnight and if it rains wet beds await the clients with obvious consequences.Staff in restaurants and bars reduced and only two crew on the Pool deck instead of 4/6 as previously. Overall an enjoyable cruise apart from the morning problems on the pool deck.

A heatwave cruise to Norway !!
