Reviewed By: on
Excellent cruise.The staff work hard to please all types of people and most of the time they succeed.
We only had one problem and that was the tour to chase the Northern lights but the 'do it yourself 'dog sledging was brilliant!!
Good food,great scenery and very good entertainment.
Cabin with bath.

Times cruised before: 10+
Sailed: February, 2012
Age: 56-65
Cabin: Inside
Occasion: Birthday

Quality of Food
Four Seasons restaurant/Secret Garden. Lunch was salad and fruit in Secret Garden. Dinner in Four Seasons was chicken,salad and fruit.

The best shows were performed by the dancers and singers from the ship. The crew show was very enjoyable. We also liked the music being played whilst queing for dinner.

Shore Excursions
The best was 'Do it yourself' dog sledging. The Northern Lights chase was the worst.

The cabin stewardess was great even when I required a mattress topper it was not a problem.She really looked after us very well.

Children's Facilities

Onboard Activities
I enjoyed all the sporting activities and there was plenty to do everyday. I also enjoyed the line dancing but it would have been nice to have a Western evening to practice our line dancing.

The cabin was better than expected and it was nice to use the bath when the hot tubs were closed.

Why did you have to queue fro dinner? Surely you were allocated a table.

I too was on this cruise and there was a string trio playing in the area near the entrance of the restuarant of course every body was allocated a table but having completed many cruises on different cruise ships I have yet to be on one when a queue doesnt start five or ten minutes before a meal starts after all some of these people have not eaten for three hours.
