Make you specialty restaurants reservations early


Dec 29, 2019

Book your special dining as soon as you are able...every night is booked solid ahead of cruise. You can always cancel if you can’t go.

Bring your own party. Traveling as a couple was boring. We met a lot of nice people but if you traveled with a group or a another couple you knew it would be more fun!

Your room key is needed for everything - get it hole punched at the customer service desk and take a lanyard to wear around your neck or tuck inside you shirt. Or take a small cross-body strap purse to have with you - room for a phone too. Ship has an onboard app with lots of info. Ship WiFi is good so we could text each other onboard.

Lose ten pounds prior to sailing. Also, you don't need as much clothing because the on ship laundry was so handy. And, the soap was also available complimentary.

Shore excursions categorized as "Privileged Access" are genuine treats - don't hesitate to spend money on those excursions.

Sign up for bridge tours/galley tours as soon as possible. If your excursion is timed so that you'll miss lunch, be sure to eat a big breakfast. You can make one reservation at Manfredi's before the cruise, but once onboard you can make more if there are openings. It’s a must-eat kind of place and it’s included in the cost of the cruise!

Make your own onboarding arrangements. The arrival / onboarding experience was a nightmare.


Jun 30, 2018

Pack lightly, there is little clothing storage in the cabin. Avoid cabins above the Torshavn as the sound insulation is poor at best.

We would have booked more additional tours
