Review summary

This was our 1st cruise and it didn't disappoint. Norway is stunning and the people very friendly. Yes it's expensive over there but we didn't mind paying. Just to give an idea of pricing, we went to Starbucks and for two coffees and two sandwiches it was £25.00. Bottle of water around £4.50

Had about hour wait in car park but after dropping cases we were checked in and in our cabin within 20 minutes

Food and Dining

1st class food at Sindu and loved our afternoon tea in The Epicurean. Buffet at breakfast time was experience, people pushing to get to things before you, but no different to most hotels. Food was plentiful and of good quality.

We paid for afternoon tea here. The service here is on a totally different level. This is top notch. From the moment we entered all of the staff lined up to take you to your seat. This is a must to do

The Live Lounge

Top entertainment with Maxine and her tribute to Adele and Dusty. The Rat pack were awful. Always best to get there very early to get a seat

The Crystal Room

5 out of 5

Another lovely place to have a drink and either listen to the band. Or maybe try and learn to dance with the fabulous Ian and Penny

The Crow's Nest
