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


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