Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Club Veranda Stateroom

We chose this cruise for the ports visited, The Cruise ship for the passenger size and a Balcony Stateroom for watching the world go by.

Firstly the ports we visited were all great. some were via tender boat and others berthed close to town.

On this cruise the embarkation process took such a long time with the ports telling us we would commence boarding at 11:30am when in fact it was 12:30pm. The luggage did not arrive to our room until 4:00pm after multiple attempts I was advised it was still in the port enclosure even though it was dropped off early at 9:00am. This was not a good start to what I was hoping would be a great voyage.

Cabin Review

Club Veranda Stateroom

Cabin V2

Most has been said above but I was happy with the overall space in the cabin and Balcony it was just a little thing that the King size configuration on the bed could have had a fitted bottom sheet to stop in crinkling most nights.

Lighting in the room especially at the beside was good.

The bathroom is certainly a big issue with the really small size of the shower recess and the fabric curtain along the with the cover for the toilet roll holder right were you could scrape your knee. For a luxury ship this is not a good look

Port Reviews

Edinburgh (South Queensferry)

Arrived and did a tour of the royal yacht britannia at Leith port independently on day 2.

Bergen

From the cable Car once finished did a tour of the city as the cruise ship docked about 400metres away.

Bergen

Great trip to the top of Mount Floyen on a sunny day with the cable car there and back

Flam

Booked direct with Flam railway Half the price of the ships excursion (without the waffles and coffee)

Geiranger

Fantastic small bus tour to all the popular spots in Geiranger

Tromso

Took the local bus to the cable Car and then the same to the Artic Museum. Great view from the top of Tromso
