Reviews for Iceland circumnavigation cruise


review 7 Jun 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Zodiak trips which get close to seabird colonies and the rib boat whale watching trip.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

We were advised to print and bring all travel docs including a lengthy full colour guide with details of ship facilities. I didn't take this seriously expecting such information to be available on board - I was wrong!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, to some extent. The cruise operator is a local company employing some Icelanders as tour guides and admin, the crew and hospitality were almost entirely international many of whom will be sending remittances to developing countries. The ship will have used a lot of fuel, my inquiry about refuse disposal was not answered, but as we were in port each day I imagine it went into Iceland's usual system. No specific reference was made to conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A wonderful trip overall. There were a few annoying glitches, probably because it was the first of the season, which staff and crew did their best to overcome.
