No Northern Lights but great experience. Tours all very expensive but worth it. The Captain was anonymous during the whole cruise which was dissapointing. No updates at all from her, and no reassurance during the force 10 storm in the Norwegian sea ( for 12 hours) when many passengers were very worried. My wife and i, and 18 others paid £55 each to sail into Alta in the viewing area of the Captains lounge and it was very nice. Good views, good food and good company...but alas, our Captain couldnt be bothered to come in and say hello when we was in her own suite ! No enforcement of hygene wash at the entrance to the restaurants. Many many people just ignored this so im surprised no outbreak of Norovirus. Entertainment was average but cinema showed some good films. Food was first class and service was very good. Disembarkation was a shambles. Its a shame this particular ship is leaving, i would definately liked to travel again on her..but not with this Captain.

Lovely ship but disappointing
