Sail Date: Aug 2018
Cabin: Superior Inside

We had always wanted to see the Norwegian Fjords and had never cruised before, so took the plunge and booked the 6 night cruise from Newcastle.

We were lucky enough to get the all inclusive deal at the time we booked.

The trip was amazing. The ship is lovely, not a glistening modern one but really classy - a wide variety of nice bars, lounges, snugs, library - plenty places to sit quietly.

Cabin Review

Superior Inside

Cabin G

Very comfortable beds, tea and coffee making facilities, a range of films and TV shows to watch - a surprisingly spacious cabin. Bathroom modern and nice shower.

The maid service was second to none, in twice a day to clean and turn down at night.

Port Reviews

Newcastle (England)

Smooth check in

Bergen

Within walking distance of the ship, lovely town with interesting history and fish market, worth a visit
