7-Nights Viking Sagas

A short trip to Norway, (a favourite destination for us), to try out a verandah cabin.   As it is only 7 days, it will not be too expensive, and we can manage, even if it turns out the wind whistles through the doors*.   Our only problem is that HAL do not have the same "no smoking on balconies" policy that Princess has.   Princess only had a sailing from Southampton on the Crown Princess, which is a bit big for us, otherwise we would have gone with them.   We just hope we don't get cigar smoke blowing in from next door.

* I had seen this as a criticism of balcony cabins on Cruise Critics.   We discovered later on the Ocean Princess that if you just slide the door closed, it does whistle when the wind gets up.   However if you read the instructions, and use the handle to lock the door, it shuts tight and does not whistle.
