We wanted to visit Ireland and Iceland, but to our surprise the favourite port stop was Lerwick, Shetland Islands. This was our first major cruise and we enjoyed all of it. Met very interesting people from all over the world, who shared their expertise with us. Food was excellent and we used the main dining room almost every night. The buffet offered a diverse selection and was never overly crowded. We loved the small town of Cobh( pronounced Cove) and visited two museums there. They nicely complemented each other. In Dublin we spent time at the Epic Museum and enjoyed it. None of these museums were expensive. In Lerwick we walked and climbed hills, stopping at the Commonwealth cemetery and the Jimmy Perez house. Our “big” excursion was the Ring of Fire in Iceland. This needs a review on its own. Let’s just say we needed more time at The Parliament and less having coffee and cake (who needs more food ?)

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 1A 8327
Port side. Great decision as we were treated to spectacular views of Iceland as the ship progressed up the east coast of the island.
Plenty of storage space for a 12 night cruise. Kettle provided in room.
Room was a short distance from The Hideaway, which I used for morning coffee and for asylum on bad weather sea days as the cabin was cleaned.
Panorama Deck Inside Cabins, Balcony Cabins, Suite Cabins
