We really enjoyed all the ports on this trip,especially Lerwick, Nuuk and Halifax.

Have been on Crown Princess before and think it is just too big for some of the ports on this trip. Of the 7 we managed to get to(we missed 1 Greenland port due to bad weather) we could walk off only once, the rest were tendered or used shuttle buses. Not great for moving over 3000 people.

Food was the usual Princess fare.

We liked all the trivia quizzes, and of the evening shows the best was the tribute to Cole Porter. Didn't go to many of the individual "star" shows.

Crew were as friendly and polite as ever. Cruise Director was a bit of a mystery - we didn't meet one passenger who'd ever seen her in daylight - very unlike our last one on Sea Princess.

We were flying back from New York at 7.30pm so decided to take the tour of the city. This meant we were about first to disembark and missed the big queues. We had our luggage on the coach and were dropped at the airport at our check in time - well worth the extra cost

Great cruise,but....
