Sail Date: May 2023

I chose this cruise after researching small ship cruising that offered opportunities to visit small less visited towns and the areas that the big ships don’t have access to. The cruise has a big emphasis on science with an expedition team led by enthusiastic knowledgeable crew who give passengers the ability and encouragement to submit data, photographs, sightings etc to websites tracking the movement of wildlife around the planet contributing to citizen science.

The ship I sailed on is extremely beautiful and gives the impression that it can cope with anything and does having prior to my trip sailed up from Antarctica. The decor inside is neutral and tasteful with the use of lots of wood and art chosen by the Queen of Norway herself.

My cabin was on the fourth deck without a balcony but had a large window and to be honest I spent most of the time out on deck looking at the most amazing scenery and wildlife passing by. It was very spacious with a comfortable double bed that can be configured to two singles if required and had a good sized bathroom with a heated floor handy for drying damp clothes.
