“Wonderful ship, high quality cabins and very service orientated staff. This was a great cruise through Iceland, Greenland and Denmark. This was my first cruise and certainly not the last. Very relaxing and yet you see so much. Have booked another cruise tour already!”
“Scanadinavia was everything I expected and then some. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Scanadinavia. Our tour guide did an amazing job and the itinerary was neither too busy nor too sloppy. Looking forward to join the next trip.”
“The tour was falsely advertised online. My travel agent called in to confirm the details and we were provided false information on the phone again. We were told that rooms were for 2-4 people max ( I received a paper copy of that confirmation from topdeck) but upon arriving on the trip we were all surprised to see that the rooms had 10 people, and 1 bathroom. The tour guide was terrible. She was disorganized, unknowledgeable, and unprepared. The itinerary listed that we would receive free city tours and that we had a number of optional activities that we could do. All items listed on the optional activity itinerary were cancelled or closed... We only found out upon arriving to the place. We didn't even get any of the promised city tours. All in all, I'm not really sure what I paid for. We were forced to plan our own outings, organize our own sightseeing and find our way around on our own. I would not recommend this tour!”
