Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Balcony

This ship leeft Dover for Norway and Iceland. We've never been to Iceland and this ship sailed around the entire island. We stopped four times, on the East Coast, on the North Coast, on the Northwest and in Reykjavik. The first three stops were very small towns, fewer than 10,000 people, with limited scenic spots and opportunities. They were interesting, but limited. Reykjavik is the capital, with over half the population. and museums, shops and activities to match. We chose the tour to the Blue Lagoon, and didn't get to do anything else, since we had limited time. A major disappointment.

Norway was beautiful, and the cruising into and out of the fjords justified the balcony even in chilly weather. There was no enrichment program on the history or geology of these two interesting countries, just Princess's excursions.

Service in the Main Dining Room was flawless, with fixed seating. There were three formal nites, largely ignored by most passengers. I wore a sports coat. Food ranged from ordinary to very good - never great. Buffet was less elegant, but also had good service.

Balcony

Cabin B4

Somewhat cramped compared to other balcony cabins on this model ship. Love seat instead of sofa. Adequate storage
