I have just returned from the round trip on Finnmarken. Hurtigruten provides an excellent voyage and some stunning scenery. Much has been said about the trips so I will not add to the many reviews. BUT, Hurtigruten and probably other cruise lines MUST deal with the problem of mobile phone usage. WE witnessed people taking calls on speakerphone and coupled with their loud voices this was a massive distraction. It is time to have quiet areas so that those who are thoughtless and rude do not spoil the trip for others. We witnessed arguments almost every day with people saying don’t talk on your phone.
Trips -very varied and interesting. Well organised.
Food -buffet -pretty good and a very wide range
Restaurant on flloor 7 -VERY good. For this on board the upgrade cost is only NOK290
Hurtigruten - you do a great job but please address the matter of the phone nuisance
