For years had heard of how the North Cape and Fjord cruises can be very special. Key was weather which can vary form sunny and clear to rain. Was lucky to do this trip and have overall fine weather. It was an easy sialing combining two cruises and found the crew very nice and was told easier to use the buffet, which I did 95% of the time for casual dining, even on formal nights. This was no need, if you didn't want to bother, to get too dressed and could be casual too since in the more comfortable area of the ship and dining. The buffet was good with a lot of variety from day to day as well as some items that were staples for everyone or variations of the same. The chefs were most kind and friendly too.

Did the Lido for most of my meals to keep it simple. Overall interesting trip but one of few Americans, was both 95% Brit and the mid age was 68, mine but felt more like a floating senior center which, indeed, it was. On two week cruises you generally find few younger passengers due to cost too.
