Just returned from a six-night trip from Bergen to Kirkenes. While we did sail on the MS Polarlys I think my comments are germane to all of Hurtigruten's ships. The main purpose of our trip was to see the Northern Lights and we did. We saw ... Read more

I am a 64-year-old, single female traveller. By day two of this cruise, I was so bored and disillusioned, I wanted to jump ship. I was quite prepared to forfeit the $9K I had paid for the cruise just to put an end to the monotony. This ... Read more

We bordered at Kirkenes and embarked at Bergen. Before driving on board the luggage was taken off the car and brought to the cabin by ship staff. It is not possible to go to the car after it has been left on the small car deck, approx 20 ... Read more

I will place emphasis on the cruise portion. With a group reservation the tickets were waiting at the pier and we quickly boarded. Our cabin number was only then provided based on the chosen category. My cabin proved to be a problem ... Read more
