We really wanted to go to the Fjords and decided cruising was the best way to do it. I am prone to travel sickness but thought it would be lovely and calm in the Fjords. That was true but I overlooked the North Sea crossing!
Suffice to say it was my first experience of Force 9! However sailing down to the likes of Geiranger and Flam was absolutely amazing and I survived the rough seas without it putting me off cruising.
We were overwhelmed by the whole concept of a floating hotel, new destinations each day, comfortable accommodation, good food and were totally surprised by the superb entertainment (as others have mentioned, on Thomson).
We've never looked back and travelled on a variety of cruise line since to places I never imagined I would see - granted sometimes only for a day but what a joy to be able to experience so much. I'm still excited when we book another cruise - love the research, planning and revisiting old favourites as well as discovering something new. So lucky to be able to do it.
