Balmoral, Northern Europe


The cruise itself was very good but the lack of insistence of applying hand cleanser when entering the Palms buffet was rather annoying. It was not surprising that Covid was all over the ship. So many people had Covid that they ran out of isolation cabins. We were lucky and did not catch it. The lack of insulation between cabins was annoying. You could hear every conversation, cough etc. We did see a lot of sea wild life Whales and Dolphins and we had some good talks from the onboard wildlife team.
The food as usual was very good and we had very attentive waiters who were very friendly. They made a good experience for my husbands 65th Birthday. The whole team sang to him, gave him a cake and shook his hand. The room stewardess left towels in the shape of an elephant on the bed. The tours were over priced and if you can organise things yourself you can save yourselves some money. Overall we had a very enjoyable experience.
