Sail Date: May 2023

The new Rotterdam ship was lovely. We boarded late due to a gastro problem on board the previous week which required a DEEP cleaning. The special needs people were hard to find. Non existent on disembarking. Wheelchairs NEVER appeared at designated spot& we had to get ourselves off. No help. The entire crew was very pleasant. However in main Dinning room they were extremely slow. 45 min to even get a glass of wine. First 3 nights they brought horrible wine that had to be returned. After talk w the manager I had to request please no substitute for the wine ordered. We r neither wine snobs or picky,but everyone at our table thought the wine was terrible. The cabin steward was fab. Cabin vista suite was nice. Just some chair scrapping noise from above on level 8. The “ chat” on Navigator was very handy app. We could text our friends to catch up. Glad we were in Norway early enough to still see snow on the MT tops. Could use more daytime adult entertainment…talks, etc. never enough seating in the Crowsnest&World stage , also. It was nice to have the slow, low river cruise before this ocean cruise.

Cabin Review

Lovely cabin with many nice amenities.Robes, slippers, binoculars. Lap robes for the balcony, makeup mirror.Tons of storage.

Port Reviews


Norway was on our bucket list.Amsterdam is an easy commute from the states ( Florida) for us and a lovely city to spend a few days in. We did a back to back river cruise the week before this Norway cruise.
