Never been on a cruise before never will again.If you are booked with these try to get a refund truly awful.The ship the Astoria they actually boast she is the oldest cruise ship still in service and it shows tired,tatty and dated.

We hit bad weather every time we entered the sea the ship is old, unstable, and creaks,groans and rocks like a cork in a jaccuzzi! The rooms are dated tired and dont go if in room 489 the noise from engines is horrendous we averaged 4 hours sleep a night even with ear plugs one night l slept upstairs in the bar.

Went to Norwegian fjords the ice hotel in Bergen is total rip off grotty hotel in backstreet with a insulated container with a few ice sculptures dont waste your money.So bad 2 people tried to get flights home but too expensive.The food was miniscule portions bland and tasteless.Best lunch was on an excursion.The bar staff constantly trying to sell you the ships drinks package.The highlight was trying to find an unchipped cup for a cup of tea.Avoid this company and especially this ship at all costs.

Cabin Superior

Extremely noisy,stunk of cigerettes from crew members smoking at back of ship.Wardrobe doors kept flying open.Old tired and dated.Overall poor.
