Here's my report on the cruise:

Just to let you know that I have just got back from my cruise to Norway on the newly re-fitted Saga Pearl II. She's a lovely small ship with only about 400 passengers on board.

Good points were:

  1. Free internet!
  2. My own double cabin!
  3. Tour escort in every port!
  4. Three lovely rear teak decks.
  5. Red sea dress code on casual nights.
  6. Drinks allowance.
  7. Excellent programme of up to 3 lectures per sea day.
  8. Free launderette.
  9. Free fruit and water in cabin.
  10. Efficient cabin stewardess.
  11. Newly re-fitted contemporary interior:
