Sail Date: Jan 2024

Our cruise only had about 300 passengers. The entire crew was fantastic! The expedition crew ensured we had as many outings as possible, and our several days we had landings and zodiac cruises. We had terrific weather up until the last landing. They issue boots and you get a complimentary jacket. Hiking poles in different heights are also provided. Food was delicious in the Aune restaurant and varied. Breakfast was especially good with crispy bacon! Everything is made from scratch in the kitchens which is amazing. We ate in the “fast food” Freidham a couple of times. Tried the 8.50 euro milkshake. Ship is beautiful with a 6 story digital screen behind the glass elevators. Lots of nooks to be by yourself looking out at the scenery. Scenery was breathtaking / the icebergs, the water, whales, penguins, seals and birds. No entertainment to speak of other than loads of lectures and art sessions. We did have two nights where the crew had a band and played music. There is a small pool and jacuzzi, a sauna, a spa, and small gym.

Cabin Review

Our cabin was one of the smaller Arctic superior cabins. When you walked in the bathroom was in the left and the closet on the right. Next came the double bed with a small desk in one side. At the rear of the cabin were two chairs, a TV, and then the balcony. We had a tea kettle, instant coffee and tea bags. Bathroom amenities included hair and body wash, conditioner, and body moisturizer. Bathroom had heated floors.
