Review summary

From start to finish this cruise was perfection; pleasant and painless check-in, lovely room with plenty of storage space - dozens of hangers! - every staff member friendly and eager to be helpful - wonderful meals with very flexible hours - easy to see the sights in the fjords because there were so many places to stand and enjoy the beautiful scenery - efficient handling of leaving ship at port stops - interesting shore excursions - incredible galley which was open for a tour (larger and more extensive than any I have seen before on much bigger ships).

Cabin / Stateroom

Wish we had had a balcony

Ship tip

If looking for lowest price cabin they are on Deck 4 - do not book 437 or 439 because, even though they are right behind the main restaurant, have to take elevator or stairs up to Deck 5 and then come down another elevator or stair to get to the restaurant. Breakfast at La Terasse is a super buffet.
