Overall, this was an enjoyable ship without too many highs or lows.

The Cabin

Our inside cabin met all needs. While there wasn’t much room for anything beyond the bed, it was comfortable. The room was quiet. There were enough USB ports, both bedside and at the dressing table. The flat screen TV was large and well-positioned for viewing from bed. I appreciated the shower, which was large enough, had a nice showerhead and a door instead of a curtain. There were no odors or plumbing problems, things which are easy enough to take for granted but could quickly turn a nice cruise into a nightmare.

Port Reviews

Akureyri

Nice, small and walkable city. We took plenty of photos, went to the public library and ate lunch at Sushi Corner.

Isafjord

Very small town and a lovely place to walk. We took plenty of photos, went to the public library and ate a fabulous lunch of seafood near the dock.

Invergordon (Inverness)

A great starting point for a trip through the Highlands. We arranged for our own guide who drove us to a Castle, a loch, a small town (where we had lunch) and a distillery.
