It was wife’s birthday so went for it Enjoyed cruise but I was disappointed in the timings ,the boat went up the fjords early morning (while in bed) out in evening (while at dinner ) thus missing some of the scenery A shorter stay at the places would have cured some of that, as there was nothing much in the villages stopped at .b t w £1.75 to use loo in one place by c c ! Plus side free upgraded to ocean view but noisy ,as we were on the lower deck 5 . As it was wife’s birthday they had a cake for her and the waiters came to the table with it Ready to sing her happy birthday ,but alas they were too late as we went up to see the show. However it was put in the cabin with a card ,nice gesture!. The food was excellent six course dinners with a great variety of food from Beef wellington To salmon . Breakfast loads of cereal,fruits ,yoghurt s meats ,cheeses ,porridge ,bacon (bit hard) sausages ,beans ,hash browns and one morning black pudding which was very tasty ! Another morning pancakes ,the chef was on doing the omelette with different fillings plus fried eggs . Lunch three course ,even fish and chips with mushy peas one day ,shepherds pie another . We chose the dining room as the self service was always very busy ! Drink prices were reasonable at £3.75 pint or near enough Entertainment was good ,some good singers and dancers that would put many a t v show to shame. Different theme every night ,the guest comedian on two nights well what can I say ! There were quizzes and games laid on by the crew which were fun And got you chatting to your fellow passengers . In all a very pleasant cruise up the Norwegian Fjordland third cruise but first on a small ship And nice it started from rosyth saved trailing to south . One final point perhaps they could give the windows a clean now and again they were very dirty when looking out having a relaxing drink Took a while to disembark 2hrs after arriving at port .we were last off ! The End !

Enjoyed cruise but !

It was wife’s birthday so went for it

Enjoyed cruise but I was disappointed in the timings ,the boat went up the fjords early morning (while in bed) out in evening (while at dinner ) thus missing some of the scenery

A shorter stay at the places would have cured some of that, as there was nothing much in the villages stopped at .b t w £1.75 to use loo in one place by c c !

Plus side free upgraded to ocean view but noisy ,as we were on the lower deck 5 .

As it was wife’s birthday they had a cake for her and the waiters came to the table with it

Ready to sing her happy birthday ,but alas they were too late as we went up to see the show.

However it was put in the cabin with a card ,nice gesture!.

The food was excellent six course dinners with a great variety of food from Beef wellington

To salmon .

Breakfast loads of cereal,fruits ,yoghurt s meats ,cheeses ,porridge ,bacon (bit hard) sausages ,beans ,hash browns and one morning black pudding which was very tasty !

Another morning pancakes ,the chef was on doing the omelette with different fillings plus fried eggs .

Lunch three course ,even fish and chips with mushy peas one day ,shepherds pie another .

We chose the dining room as the self service was always very busy !



Drink prices were reasonable at £3.75 pint or near enough

Entertainment was good ,some good singers and dancers that would put many a t v show to shame. Different theme every night ,the guest comedian on two nights well what can I say !

In all a very pleasant cruise up the Norwegian Fjordland third cruise but first on a small ship

And nice it started from rosyth saved trailing to south .

One final point perhaps they could give the windows a clean now and again they were very dirty when looking out having a relaxing drink

Took a while to disembark 2hrs after arriving at port .we were last off !

The End !
