Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

We were really looking forward to this cruise. Great itinerary with Copenhagen, Norway, Iceland and Scotland. Despite a decent off ship experience we did not enjoy the ship -

Recent poor reviews are accurate. It is consistently inconsistent and not at the standard of competitors. Feels like they are trying to please everyone and ultimately pleasing no one.

- ship felt dreary and dowdy. Does not have a big atrium - low ceilings, claustrophobic and overall not that pleasant.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom

Good tv system and comfortable bed but felt cramped. They should change sheets - a false economy.

Port Reviews

Akureyri

Did a great tour out of here. Managed to book on the spot outside the ship.

Reykjavik

Great stop and will visit again. Walked into town, great wander around and then did a trip to the Puffin Island on a rib boat (about 70 USD)

South Queensferry

Love Edinburgh but they called everyone on board at 3:30 and then did not have tenders to bring people back to the shop for over two hours. Waiting in the rain was not fun. Could have made it a 6pm stop and everyone would have been happy.
