Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin:

The Roald Amundsen is a brand new ship of a very high standard, but there are issues with how it is run.

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Greenland and this seemed to be a good itinerary. We were excited by the thought of a new ship, and thought there were a couple of cruises before ours, so that any teething issues would be sorted out.

This proved not to be the case. The expedition crew seemed not to have worked out that dealing with 500 passengers was totally different from 200. The sound system didn't work properly so that briefings were difficult. There is no area on the boat to brief everyone, even when split into two groups.

Cabin Artic Superior

Excellent cabin.

NB - the balcony side is steel, so that you cannot see the sea from in bed.
