This is one of the smaller Neptune Suites, but it has a huge balcony. In sum, a great cabin for two.

Ports of call

Oslo, Norway

We took the Oslo Highlights tour off Trip Advisor. Excellent choice, great guide, better price than the ship excursion.

Kristiansand, Norway

Stavanger, Norway

We took public transportation to the Pulpit Rock hike. It was a great day and we saved a ton. The ferry/bus cost us $35 each and gave us an extra 45 mins in the park before the crowds arrived.

Flaam, Norway

We booked a kayak tour that included the Old Kings Path. Find them on Trip Advisor. Our guides were great and they were very professional.

Bergen, Norway

Walk to the Funicular and then enjoy the trails above the city.

Lerwick, Shetland Islands, Scotland

We rented a car from Star. This worked out ok. Roads on Lerwick are good. Drive to Sumburg Head. Very cool.

Portree, Isle Of Skye, Scotland

5 out of 5
We rented a car here. I might suggest a tour, though. The roads are single lane, two way, and difficult to navigate. Check out Trip Advisor for better ideas.

Invergordon (Inverness & Loch Ness), Scotland

5 out of 5
We booked a WOW Scotland tour. Gordon was an extraordinary guide. I would highly recommend this company. They schedule the tour .... with a great lunch .... to coincide with the cruise schedule.

South Queensferry (Edinburgh), Scotland

5 out of 5
Take the train into Edinburgh. Then walk to what you might like to visit. Otherwise, hail a cab. We had Hop On Hop Off bus tickets, but they don't run nearly enough busses for their customers.

Newcastle Upon Tyne, England

5 out of 5
Take the free shuttle from the port into town where you can then take the train into the city. It's a very nice city. Visit St. Nicholas' cathedral and the castle. Meander about the city and enjoy the architecture.
