We initially chose this cruise due to the price combined with the itinerary. I really didn’t want to add another cruise this year because we have traveled quite a bit and we have more on the books, but this seemed too good to pass up. We really enjoyed this ship. It is beautiful and just the right size to our thinking.
The itinerary was ideal, but there were three tinder ports, and Dublin, for instance, had such rough waters that day that we didn’t risk it since we have been there before, and we didn’t have an excursion planned. We found a band we loved in the Red frog pub. A Chilean band that called themselves “The Hits” and we enjoyed comedians a couple of nights. We only saw one production show, and it was pretty formulaic, and actually the voices of our singing waiters in the main dining room were better than the cast singers.
Unfortunately, our one booked shore excursion was canceled for lack of sign ups. That was in Reykjavík, where we wanted to see the tectonic plates and the geysers and Falls so we got on the hop on hop off bus instead-not something I would recommend. We also had a reservation in the evening for the Blue Lagoon and that was wonderful. Not to be missed—well done and worth the price.
Cabin an obstructed view balcony. We were comfortable with it as we could see down between the lifeboats, and we could see straight out and side to side. We travel with friends and tend to not spend a lot of time in our cabin. It was very typically, the bed was comfortable and it had everything we needed.
