This was our first ever cruise, and it exceeded our expectations at every level. We went with four other friends, and the great thing was that we enjoyed many times together, but we also had many opportunities to enjoy shore excursions on our own or with other members of the cruise. It was very comfortable either way.
The decor and atmosphere of the ship added greatly to learning about the Nordic culture and people. The art pieces were an opportunity unto themselves that allowed us to learn. Add to this world class sessions on historical events by renowned academics and experienced professionals and we had the perfect combination of fun and education.
The cabin was clean, spacious and comfortable. The personnel were professional, helpful and, without exception, accommodating. The food was incredible and of such a variety that no one would ever go hungry. The tours were informative and the on board entertainment was enjoyable, and ,as well, the educational sessions were very good.
Extraordinarily comfortable, quiet and close to everything.
