Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin:

Trip was recommended by a travel agent, it was also chance to see the Northern Lights. We didn't want a big cruise ship for our first cruise, we also wanted a trip to the Arctic Circle we this trip provided. The trip to the main port in the Arctic cancelled due to the weather which was very disappointing. The lights made a very brief appearance which also added to the frustration, I accept we were at the mercy of mother nature and the weather which wasn't ideal. Cloudy, rain and fog on the way up brighter on the return leg. Trip lasted 12 days, I wouldn't do 12 days again, 7 would've been enough,

Facilities onboard were limited but we knew that beforehand, it is a relatively small, working ship, more like a ferry.

The food onboard was excellent and they catered for all tastes.

It was a bit smaller than the photo's suggested
