We wished to see the Norweigan coast. Even though the price was high, it is a ferry. People without sleeping accommodations sleeping all over seating areas. Food quite diverse but very good. The buffet breakfast and lunch are like fish feeding frenzies . Ran out of popular items. Other than for two servers the meal service was horrible. Very short staffed. Also bad timing for one of the lunches, which was not buffet. Sit down meal and an hour later we’re not served and because we booked a tour we basically finished eating after 3 and were supposed to have diner at 5:30. Couldn’t get wine and water, or even order wine. Expedition team outstanding. However, tours are quite costly. Glad we went on the trip but did not receive value for what we paid. Would not recommend if you wish quality service. Beautiful scenery along the way. I would recommend a shorter trip as there are repeat stops returning to Bergen.

Luxury price for below average service.

Cabin Review

Cabin 605
Nice cabin. Roomy, expensive. Did not change bed linens for total cruise.
