The ship is less than basic as it is a ferry and working ship, but that is no excuse for sacrificing passenger facilities leaving repairs (our wardrobe door was coming off its hinges, the ladies sauna out of action and much else) unattended to over a near 2 week trip.
They charge for everything including tea and coffee except at lmeal times and it is not cheap even though it is poor quality coffee.
No entertainment if any kind save a single scrabble set in Norwegian and a chess set, no cards a very few books.
If, as we had due to harsh sea conditions, you have days at sea with no stop long enough to get off the ship there is nothing to do but sit and stare out of a window and stunning but very much the same landscape and sea scenes for the whole trip.
Dinner is a set menu, no choices so heaven help a fussy eater.
If you want to see the northern lights there are better ways and we would suggest a proper cruise company or fly to a suitable location.
Cramped and falling apart.
We arrived ion a sunday with little open andto see in this small town, in spite of the cruise entertainment team extolling the virtues of the architecture.
the trip was to leave at this port and meet the ship in molde. The jourbey through the countryside was mainly in the dark and in spite of the continuous commentaryfrom the guide it was difficult to really see much. The mine tour and presentation was great.View All undefined undefined Reviews
We found this a nice city and visited the cathedral and the old bridge, plus the shopping area. Unfortunately the Archbishops palace was closed and when we retuirned on the southbound trip for a limited time, we left at 10.00 when the museum opened at 11.oo
