Would you mind telling me which ship you will be on? We are considering a cruise which includes Iceland. I am not sure which board I would find this on either. Yours is the first post I've seen that mentions Iceland. Hope someone else finds your post and can help.

We took a ship's tour that included a stop at "Santa's Workshop" or something. The place was well away from town. My six year old daughter declared it a rip off. Santa was not there.
Fellow cruisers were lining up to buy stuff, but we are not shoppers and do not like shopping opportunities on tours. I like to watch the tour guide get her kickback at the end of the stop.
