Sail Date: Jul 2022

We chose the cruise as it was easier for us to reach Liverpool and was less likely to be affected by an increase in Covid infections

The ship itself is very well refurbished from Holland America line. It is excellently appointed and did not disappoint in this regard. For health reasons we selected using the Freedom fare, a Premier Suite close to a lift and friends. We have mobility issues and hidden disabilities

However a number of issues did arise

Cabin Review

Good as shown in video on Olsen website except that only two sockets one euro and one British (upside down) and high sided bath was very difficult to use

Port Reviews


As in report. Selected as first holiday in 4 years and avoiding covid. Took hop-on hop-off bus which had an excellent commentary by Joe

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

As before. Visit to new local museum was excellent but a good walk from port and hidden
