  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

Chose this cruise for a first time cruise. Brochure made it look very nice.

We would not recommend this cruise

Too many people, not enough space or things to do - just cramped. Everywhere busy, queues and everything expensive. Queues to get on and off ship (one day 90 minutes waiting in the rain to get back on ship).

Cabins small and basic. Nothing grand. Nothing like photos in brochure. Tired.

Food below average only bonus lots of it - keep piling your plate up If you like the previous sittings left overs served up again you are okay. No idea of waiting your turn more like a push in and free for all. No where to sit and eat though....

Entertainment dire. A la carte restaurant a joke. Requested a small table as only 3 of us. Allocated a table of 10. Spent 2 hours waiting for food that was to be honest just crap. All pomp and put on - people dressing up and pretending.

Complain to front desk - you are ignored and fobbed off

Customer services on return - a hamper was sent and basically that’s it

Facilities for disabled - poor

Would not recommend unless you like paying a lot of money for lousy food and accommodation and being ripped off for excursions in ports and being ignored by the ships staff who are all well trained in fobbing you off.

Cabin Review

Cabin Other B719

Can’t remember other cabin but one had a balcony and one did not. Overrated.
