We had seen this cruise advertised in the newspapers quite a lot and knew several people who had been on it. This one is different from other cruises as the ship has a schedule to meet to fulfil its obligations to the Norwegian government. We liked the idea of stopping at ports several times a day (and night!) and seeing lots of different places.
We booked through ROLCruise and the price included return flights from London, as well as unlimited tea and coffee throughout the voyage, and wi-fi.
The food was superb - very plentiful and delicious. There was a nice balance between buffet-style meals and more formal meals in the evening at a set time.
We decided that we definitely wanted an outside cabin and toyed briefly with the idea of booking a suite, but decided that was definitely not worth the money. In the event, we were so pleased with our cabin. It was the last cabin on a short corridor of only three cabins and only crew members going on and off duty passed our door. It was so quiet - no engine noise nor could we hear any noise during docking at night. A cabin on the promenade deck below would have had a constant procession of other passengers passing the window, and a cabin further aft or on a lower deck would have had far more engine noise. It was plenty big enough for the two of us who didn't want to spend a lot of time sitting on our own in there. The bed was a good size and very comfortable. The shower room was well appointed, surprisingly spacious, and there was constant, plentiful, hot water.
