  1. my wife and i were on the inaugural cruise
    apart from the initial problems and curtailment
    of the cruise
    the ship is wonderful and the cabins extremely spacious
    and we were treated so well by saga and the entire cost was refunded. we have alreadfy booked again as this will be one of the finest ships afloat5

    My wife and I were on the cruise to the North Cape and ports between in June,and again the ship broke down and we did not reach the North Cape or most of the ports of call on the itinerary published, and had to suffer four nights awaiting a repair man with spare parts to repair the equipment, that was after the ships engineer blew the fuses and had to search locally for replacements.(Read Cruise Critic June) Unfortunately we did not receive the entire cost refund or a percentage off the next cruise, No we were offered 40% refund, meaning we were expected to pay 60% for the pleasure of waiting for the cruise we never had, and we understand the engines failed again recently.So cannot agree with your comment, as we are still waiting for our full settlement.
