1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Oslo, Norway’s coastal landscape, sea eagle safari.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The ferry trip is great but make sure you allow enough money to book lots of excursions - these are terrific and add greatly to the experience.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, local people were employed as onshore guides and I understand that the ship company has reduced its environmental impact by using an improved type of fuel in their ships. For someone who would never go on a cruise or in a large cruise boat, this was perfect - a functioning ferry service with an excellent experience for passengers.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. Really enjoyed it. The Expedition Team on board were fantastic: professional, multi-lingual, multi-talented, very efficient and fun. There were also some interesting talks delivered in a light-hearted way. I was very glad not to have joined a conventional “cruise”. My cabin was very comfortable and the food was very good indeed.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were a number of impressive sights , and it’s difficult to identify one as most memorable but sailing into Troll Fjord was incredible. I also should say some of the on board presentations by expedition leaders were as rewarding as the sights.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You need to understand your ship is a confined environment populated by, in our case, with 450 travelers and could be thousands so you need to be comfortable with lines and crowds.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not necessarily but I’m sure there were things done routinely and equipment in place that supported these issues.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The typical wet fall weather had an impact on the overall experience but the voyage was a great experience. The crew, especially the expedition leaders,needing interaction with passengers couldn’t have been more personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. The ship itself was all one could hope for and our accommodations were outstanding, more than I expected. And the food, especially the breakfast and lunch buffets, was excellent. Overall, a cruise of the highest quality. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a quality cruise.
