Sail Date: Apr 2022

Our ports were the Azores (actually really liked these two ports, had zero expectations for them and they turned out so well, took Viator tours) Cherbourg, Brugges, and Amsterdam. All were excellent, many different excursions available and we were able to see the Keukenhoff at the peak of tulip season so this was amazing timing. We took a ship, HA, tour to Ypres, WW I cemeteries and an excellent museum. Would not take a ship tour again for this but would certainly take this same excursion privately. We weren't allowed enough time and the guide wasn't great.. The Kuykenhoff excursion through the ship was also much too short so booked through Viator. The pick up spot was very close to the pier in Amsterdam so this was easy. We were on back to back cruises so we just returned to the ship at the end of the tour in time to sail to Norway.

Cabin Review

Wonderful aft Vista Suite. These cabins are much roomier than the regular Vista Suites. We had to move cabins, we were continuing on to Norway, and the aft Vista was not available. They showed us a regular Vista but it was smaller. Don't know if I would pay for that upgrade over a regular veranda.
