A timely adventure and the cold wet weather didn't deter most of the passengers

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords
  • Cabin Type: Spacious Ocean View Balcony

always wanted to see the Norwegian coastline and this cruise did not disappoint. From the snow covered mountains to the hustle and bustle of Bergen - and RCI did a good job organising everything.

we didn't have a drink package on this trip due to all the shore time and this worked well. Furthermore, the embarkation and back to back arrangements went well (nearly everything) the food was wholesome and one would have a good choice of faire - we didn't partake in speciality dining but Windjammer and anytime dining was great.

Shore excursions were well organised and everything ran like clockwork (we did have one that we booked ouselves that didn't work out but thats another story).

Crew were excellent including our room attendant - John - looked after us and our room was always spotless.

The only thing was no shuttle from the ship on two of the stops without cost - seems a little issue but should be addressed. Furthermore, although I love not having the internet maybe having it included in the cost would be a game changer for others - people complained about the cost.
