Day 1: A Day at Sea
For our one week Scandinavian cruise, we travelled with Princess Cruises and our ship, The Sky Princess, had plenty to keep us occupied during a day at sea en-route to our first stop in Norway. The ship had multiple pools (including those for adults only), shops, a spa and salon, a casino, multiple bars, a theatre, a gelato bar, as well as pool-side entertainment. Not forgetting the tennis courts, basketball court, mini golf, gym and running track.
Worst case, you can always check out one of the multiple restaurants and eateries dotted around the ship. I expected the food to be pretty good on a cruise, though I was not prepared for the actual level of quality. Some of the food I had on the ship was up there with the best I'd ever eaten. Food options range from your usual comfort foods and vast buffets to five star dining experiences curated by Michelin star chefs. Better yet, you could set yourself by the pool and use their onboard app to order most of their food options directly to your sun-bed or cabin.
I also got my nails did to kill an hour. A real hardship.
