Sail Date: May 2023
Cabin: Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

A great overview of the entire British Islands and Ireland. Some big cities and also small villages. Beautiful landscape. Interesting places and people. An excursion for every taste. They really gave one a sense of the places we visited. As always the crew were very friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic and varied. The head chef was omnipresent and it showed in the food and service. Never felt crowded or rushed. Nice to have so many choices on where, when and what to eat.

One included tour with every port. Liked them all. Very good local guides everywhere we went. Good overview of the places we traveled.

We took the Taste of Norwegian Farm Life and South Stack Bird Reserve sanctuary optional tours. Felt we got good value for the money.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda Stateroom

We were very happy with our cabin. Plenty of room for storage. Very quiet. At times it was hard to imagine there were other people on the ship. Very convenient access to the Explorer Lounge. Very stable ride. Cabin attendants were excellent.

Port Reviews


Took a bus tour of Belfast and then had free time. Saw the castle, churches and the city. Lots to see in Belfast.


This was our third time in Bergen. Just a beautiful city. This was the first time we didn't have rain, however.


Nice seeing the "white cliffs of Dover" in person on the way to Canterbury. The guide made the history of Canterbury come alive. Enjoyed the other churches in Canterbury also.


It was a holiday when the bus was in Dublin and we felt trapped by the traffic. Even so liked seeing St. Patrick's church, the old post office and the bridges.

Greenwich (England)

Nice to be at the international date line. Was surprised at how many movies had been filmed in this area.

Shetland Islands

Of course the highlight was visiting the ponies, but the mountain scenery and native cows were also very interesting.
