Traveled with children

This is the fourth cruise we have been on, with various lines and destinations.

Departed Liverpool, seemlessly, and cruised to Dublin, then on to the Shetlands and then to the Norwegian Fjords.

It does amaze me how nit-picking some people are. This was a great value cruise - we weren't paying Cunard prices, and we were taking our two kids.

Port Reviews


Lovely city, we used the Green Tour Bus.

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

We used an island coach tour company.

Beautiful islands, great tour.


Book the fernicular railway yourself - two minutes walk from the ship and half the price.


Gorgeous and super tour - the Briksall Glacier trip in the troll cars is expensive but worth it.


Stunning trip - a must do.


Lovely and a super coach tour.


Oil Museum absolutely brilliant for everyone - and the film at the start is fantastic and not what we expected.
