Very well run from embarkation to disembark experience.

Check in was a breeze, no crowds. Someone took my luggage immediately and since I was early went to the World Cafe for lunch. Lots of servers and staff checking on you.

My room was scheduled to be ready at 2pm but an announcement at 1:30pm said all rooms were ready!

Port Reviews

Kirkwall

Another overview, included the Ring of Brogdar. Would have loved to go to Highland Park Distillery but not enough time. There is a Highland Park Shop in town.

Honningsvag (North Cape)

We had terrible weather, you could not see 10 ft in front of you but was fun anyway.

Would have been great to have visibility but not in anyone's control.

When we got back to the ship the wind was very strong and the gangway had to be pulled for safety reasons. We had lunch in town until the situation calmed down and they could put the gangway back in place.

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

Took included Panoramic tour, then there was a free shuttle to town. Easy enough to walk back to ship if you wanted the exercise. Saw the pony farm, brief stop but they are adorable.

Nice shops in town.

London (Greenwich, Tower Bridge, Tilbury)

Greenwich is so close to London, the MBNA Thames River Bus is at the port, easy to go to central city for a few bucks with great scenery.
