Review summary

this was a wonderful relaxing cruise with magnificent scenery. Excursions are well worth the little extra to see Norway in all its beauty.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Assistance had been booked for myself and husband and all went very well. No problems. We actually arrived at our cabin as our cases were delivered.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
mainly dined in the Venezian or Meridian. Staff were very good at helping me, I use a walking stick and would carry my tray for me. In the Meridian we had wonderful service as husband has food allergies. They went out there way to make the dining experience something special.

everyone was brilliant. our room steward, Victor was superb. everyone was friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship in general was beautiful but there were one or 2 little things that made it feel a bit dated and I felt she needed a refit.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
cabin was excellent. Victor kept it beautifully clean and in the evening beds were ready, curtains drawn.

Ports of call

Southampton (London), England Did not visit port

coach transfer from Scotland straight to ship. excellent service by Eavesway.

Stavanger, Norway

5 out of 5
docked beside Gamle Stavanger. this older area is so beautiful and easy to reach. It is an easy walk to the town centre and the shopping area. beautiful buildings and lovely scenery.

Flam

5 out of 5
The scenery on the sail up to Flam is magnificent. Again we were docked right in the middle of the town. The excursion on the Flam railway was spectacular, well worth it. The railway museum was worth a visit too.

Aurland

5 out of 5
the magnificent views sailing the fjords is the best part of this cruise

Cruise Sognefjord

5 out of 5
So much so see as you sail the fjords, it is certainly to me the best part of the cruise

Olden, Norway

5 out of 5
did not go on the main excursion up to the large Glacier, mobility problems, but did a lovely coach tour up to a smaller glacier, the scenery was magnificent.

Bergen, Norway

5 out of 5
did not do any excursions, so much to see and do in Bergen and too little time to do it. Walked through a lovely park, the shops, the old area of Bergen, went up the funicular and the views were out of this world. If I was going back to Bergen I would go on one of the hop on hop off tours they seemed to be very good.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
had assistance booked and organisation of this was excellent, however a problem with the gangway not meeting the ship properly delayed disembarkation slightly, causing a little crowding and stress.
