Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin:

Just back from our fifth cruise, this one the Fjords. Only two negatives from an otherwise excellent cruise. Firstly, out of eight lifts, two were out of order for the whole trip. Amazing the difference to when we were last on the ship last May. Frequent long frustrating waits.

Secondly the entertainment wasn't as good as previously.

The main topic of conversation throughout the voyage at every meal was the boarding experience at Southampton. It was in a nutshell, a complete shambles. We were comparatively lucky, queuing for only one hour twenty five minutes. Some people we spoke to waited up to three and a half hours plus many had to re-register on the ship as the system would not process their boarding cards.

Cabin Review

Cabin Inside Plus

No balcony cabins available when we booked. Due to weather they were seldom used. We were happy with ours and our excellent cabin steward.
