Sail Date: Jul 2019
Cabin: Outside

We chose to sail from Rosyth which was completely hassle free, on a glorious summer's day. We were happy with our outside cabin and didn't miss having a balcony. Room of a good standard. Always plenty of hot water for showers. All staff were very courteous and friendly. Food was good and I think we were very fortunate dining in the Spey restaurant as the picture windows gave us wonderful views as we travelled the fjords.

Nothing anyone can do about the weather but we were so, so lucky.....clear blue skies and glorious sunshine!

Evening entertainment was very enjoyable.

Cabin E

No problems. Outside cabin windows could have been cleaned. That applied to the whole ship.

Port Reviews




It was a great trip with beautiful scenery. However on a very hot day the train was fairly uncomfortable.
