Chosen for the route with a start in London and visits to the Orkneys and the Shetlands as well as the (almost) midnight sun. Very fortunate with the weather. Everything onboard was convenient and well maintained. Basically delivered as promised. Took a number of 'extra' excursions. Great views of the fjords and history of the king crab industry in Norway. Technological understanding of power in the islands and the utilization of resources by Scotland. Smaller villages particularly interesting. Cabins well maintained and more free space than would be expected. Entertainment basic as promised. Service friendly and attentive although often had to call for drink refills at meals - probably a tad understaffed. Ship well maintained and clean. Staff committed to assist and to smile throughout. Additional dining was alright but not really exceptional. Main restaurant was excellent. Shore excursions were excellent although some were cancelled because of not meeting minimum requirements. Included ones were ok but relatively basic.

Excellent Itierary
