Sail Date: Jul 2023
Cabin: Inside

We only booked this cruise six weeks before sailing. This was our second cruise with Fred and it won’t be our last. Sailing from Rosyth was very easy, check in was quick, parking at the Dock makes it simple. Disembarking was just as easy.

We chose an Inside Cabin for the simple reason that going to the Midnight Sun was going to be 24 hours of daylight and we both like darkness to sleep in. Our cabin was spacious with plenty of storage, loads of clothes hangers, excellent shower. Our Cabin Assistant, Aimee, was always on hand and kept our cabin spotless throughout our cruise. We were blessed with fantastic weather, no rough seas, no disturbed nights.

We were on the late dinner sitting, 8.30pm, which initially we weren’t keen on but as it worked out, it suited us perfectly. It meant that we could enjoy the Sail Aways and the long hours of daylight.

Cabin Review


Coral Deck 4 Inside cabin. Plenty of room, twin beds, comfortable. Kettle, tea & coffee most welcome. Safe in the enormous wardrobe. Hairdryer in the Shower room and another one in a drawer. T.V with some UK channels, also useful to check your on board account.
