Review for a Arctic Cruise on Norwegian Star

Long wait to get off boat with queues due to immigration process for entering UK plus tenders. We rented a car as above and explored the island. Lots of cute horses and a jewellery manufacturing area and galleries and gorgeous island scenery ...

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Island Princess

The ships tour warned of the tour as being strenuous and it was. The walk up the hill to the fort was rough on this 78 year old and I was the laggard on the 3 mile walk, but made it. I think I would have done better just walking around on my own! ...

Moussa island Excursion was an incredibly wonderful surprise. A 6 mile walk around the island that includes a 2000 year old Broch, a bird reserve, sheep, lots of sheep, a ferry ride, whole thing was just fun and interesting. ...

Review for a Transatlantic Cruise on Zuiderdam

This was my favorite port. The town is very walkable; it is easy to get to Fort Charlotte and other attractions. An afternoon excursion took us to see Shetland ponies, which are indigenous to the islands. If you are a fan of the TV show "Shetland", this port is a must. (But if you go on a Sunday, an advance restaurant reservation for lunch is must.) ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Did an amazing independent, private tour with Scenic Shetlands, which was arranged months in advance over email. After initially missing them at the pier (customs and tendering took longer than we expected to get off the ship), we were whisked away in a very nice, roomy, clean van that was plenty big enough for the 6 of us (plus guide and driver). They listened to what we wanted to see and made ...

We were lucky that it was a perfect summers day. Very unusual for Shetland which is normally rainy and windy. This was a tender port. The ship was too big for the harbour. ...

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Azamara Quest

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

If you feel brave and do not want a big ships tour, get on the local bus down to Sumburgh airport- a one hour ride each way through tiny rural communities meeting the locals along the way. The bus goes every hour from just across the road from where the shuttle drops you. You can get off the stop before the airport and visit the Viking settlement and come back on an hour later so three hours ...
