Service in restaurant: Could be poor. Twice I sat down by a window. The table was empty. I cleared the crumbs as there was no one around. Great views of the scenery and that is why I came on the cruise. I ...

Not value for money

Chose this due to fantastic marketing by Hurtigruten but the reality does not live up to the marketing. The Norwegian coast is not how it's portrayed in promotional material and the towns are not quaint fishing ...

Great trip

Always wanted to do this trip. Slightly disappointed with the ship and cabin as used to cruise ships. Wasn't expecting that level of luxury obviously but still disappointed. Cabin spartan and very small. Ridiculous ...

One more off the bucket list

I was going to start my review with the comment, "I read somewhere that $20 Billion of Internet business was lost due to bad, slow, incomprehensible websites, and I was sure that Hurtigruten was included" ...

Classic round trip (not just fjords)

Wanted something different for my 60th and a journey but with ease. This did it in spades. Not a typical cruise as working boat but still good food, good lectures/info, fun expedition team to help and point ...

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G - GET IT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST

Some highlights, some disappointments. I'd do it differently next time.

I did the Northbound Voyage from Bergen all the way to Kirkenes with my mom in Fall 2017. This was my first cruise experience. I'll start with the good parts. Good Thing #1 -- The boat's facilities (ours was ...

Great scenery but beware of the Hurtigruten money pump!

This is a unique cruise, if must be said; its strengths lie in the scenery, the food and the ability of the small ships to get into small harbours. But beware: the value for money is NOT good. I know this is ...
