I liked the ports of call.
Edinburgh,Orkney,Shetland then onto Norway finishing in the arctic circle.
I booked this cruise while on the Norwegian Dawn on a previous cruise. It was a good price taking into account the 200 pounds cash back for booking with the Nextcruise deck.
I had an inside cabin on deck 5 underneath the aqua restaurant and above the ships laundry. It was pretty quiet. I could hear the laundry sheet folding machine running in the daytime.
A lovely art nouveau style old town and a hill viewpoint which was worth thr climb. But there is also a tourist train that goes up there too. So much to do I need to visit again.
So much to see. Let down by the fact that there isnt a cruise terminal near the city. NCL tendered in from the river estuary. Some other lines use Rosyth which is a long train or bus trip into the city.
Such a friendly place. A fascinatingly island.
We were lucky that it was a perfect summers day. Very unusual for Shetland which is normally rainy and windy. This was a tender port. The ship was too big for the harbour.
There was a lovely 4 hr cruise up the fjord to Olden. I enjoyed the town and also took a glacier excursion.
Another port with so much to see I need to visit again. Good weather. I particularly liked the open air museum.
A lovely city inside the arctic circle. I took the cable car ride and some lovely walks. Very scenic.
They charged from the shuttle bus from the ship to the town centre. It was a 40 minute walk otherwise. I would rate higher if it had been a free bus. Not a huge amount to do in this port. It was bitterly cold which didnt help.
A beautiful town in the Lofoten islands. I did a lot of walking and took many photos. There were plenty of excursions on offer too.
