The food in Kopar was wonderful and took the stress out of finding somewhere to eat on our first day of arrival. The staff on the boat were really knowledgeable and very excitable when the lights appeared, which incidentally appeared at sunset. We were very lucky and saw a beautiful display.
The Kopar restaurant is very nice and the food was lovely. The table was booked automatically two and a half hours before the boat departure, however, I would recommend changing it to about three hours since we had to rush with our desserts. Unfortunately, after getting to the boat it turned out that the cruise had been canceled due to cloudy weather and we were booked for the next day. It would have been nice if they let us know a little earlier. The following evening the sky was cloudless and we manged to see a nice display of northern lights even though we've been told that it may be too late for it this time of year. The thermal overalls provided on the boat kept us nice and warm during the cruise.
The food in the Kopar restaurant was fabulous a lovely 9 course taster menu but we didn and #39;t see the northern lights when we went out on the ship. It and #39;s pot luck really
The tour was fine, a boat ride out to try and see the lights which didn't cooperate. However, the woman tour guide had a rather strident voice which was a bit abrasive coming over the speaker system. The coveralls were a welcome addition to keep warm on the frigid night.
