Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Lectures, movies, bag toss game - limited activities on board. Only four fitness classes and all of those were yoga classes on a 12 day cruise! Plenty of Scrabble and chess boards to entertain your self.

Husky Dog Sled, Snowmobile expensive but good. Sommoray Island was very disappointing and is not as described in brochure. When I pointed this out to the excursion manager she was rude and told me that I should have come to the port talk and not gone by what was written in their brochure. Really? Major waste of time money.

Bodo Did not visit port

Stavanger, Norway

Took Pulpit Rock excursion. Waste of time and money. Wish we would have strolled around town or visited museum s on our own.

Tilbury (London), England Did not visit port

Transferred to airport only.

Easy but they had us standing outside in the cold for a long time waiting in the cold for the luggage.
