We chose this cruise for the itinerary - visiting some Norwegian ports we've not been to before and a new country, Iceland, which I've always wanted to visit. We weren't disappointed - fabulous scenery, extremely lucky to get great weather, and really liked the Sapphire Princess - just the right size as it didn't feel too big or crowded even on sea days. And its had a bit of a refurb so felt a bit more modern and up to date. No complaints at all about food, service, the ship and entertainment was top notch, from the production shows to the guest entertainers. We did mostly our own pre-arranged tours or in some ports just got off the ship and walked around. Beautiful and dramatic scenery especially the fjords in Norway and the geothermal areas in Iceland. Either way we got a really good feel for the countries we visited. A great 2 weeks. Thanks Princess.
Some tips for excursions if you are thinking of this itinerary:
Bergen - we've been before so skipped the trip up the mountain and just walked around town. Visited the Ice Bar which was fun (and cold but you get parkas and gloves to wear).
Lovely cabin and been updated with new carpets and curtains. Balcony furniture grubby and seen better days though. Quiet and centrally positioned for getting around the ship easily. Still the lovely comfy Princess bed.
