Review summary

Weather dealt blows via high swells and knocking fjord ports off our published itinerary. Ship does creak a lot, staff hit and miss some Brilliant others dreadful. Entertainment excellent Jon did well, would have kept the comedian to just the first show. Food excellent some of the best cruise food (note minimum vegetables served)
