The overall cruise experience was excellent.  The staff was wonderful, and the aft-facing penthouse had WONDERFUL views of the fjords (highly recommend this type of room for any Norway cruise).  Food was a bit disappointing, but as suite guests we had access to breakfast and lunch at Cagney's which was excellent.  Breakfast at Cagney's included french press coffee, fresh squeezed OJ, and the best eggs benedict that I've ever tasted.  The other dining locations were ok, but nothing special.  The ports in Norway were spectacular, and we were pleased with all of our shore excursions.  Be wary, as some excursions were listed as an activity level of 3/4, but were really more of a 4/5. You need to be in good shape for the more aggressive hiking tours in Geiranger, although it was well worth the sweat when you reached the top!  Copenhagen was also a wonderful experience.  Every Dane we asked a question of spoke perfect English, and went out of their way to help us navigate public transportation, etc.  Be sure to pack rain gear when traveling to Norway, as the weather can change to rain at any minute.  And eat as many pastries as you can……what a difference from US pastries!  And if you go to Bergen stop at the fish market.  It was the best seafood meal!  Overall, a wonderful experience and a great itinerary.

Ship Tip

Deck 10 is really quiet, and the aft facing penthouse offered wonderful views of the fjords.
