My wife and I have just returned from our third cruise with Hurtigruten. This has been our third cruise on a different ship. All three trips have been great experiences and I can honestly say I cant find anything to criticise. We found ... Read more

My family including our 17 year old son sailed from Kirkenes to Bergen in August. The ship was the size we expected - a smaller passenger ship, billed a "coastal steamer". Our son had his own cabin which gave all of us plenty of ... Read more

This was our first cruise and I was aware that some stops would be short, however if time is lost through bad weather or technical problems then stops are curtailed and sometimes you are not allowed to get off the boat at all. Apparently ... Read more

Our trip from the U.S. middlewest started off abysmally with two flight cancellations, by American and Scandinavian airlines. It took two days for us to finally reach Bergen, and consequently we missed the Norway in a Nutshell tour ... Read more

We had just returned from a cruise on P & O's Oriana in search of the Northern Lights. This trip had been less than successful not least because when we did see the lights for a brief 15 minutes in Alta, I could not capture the event ... Read more

We travelled on Richard With and had a wonderful time Hunting the Light. We had five nights of sightings and have some super photographs that we are well satisfied with. The passage to Kirkenes and back is not a cruise - it is a journey ... Read more

We had a fantastic trip and loved every moment. Sure it's not an ocean cruise ship, more like a ferry in terms of accommodation, but we knew this before we left and it was all part of the adventure. We knew the cruise was called "Hunting ... Read more

We've just returned from a Christmas and New year cruise - 21st Dec 2013 to 2nd Jan 2014. To say that joining the ship was a shambles would be an understatement. We arrived at Bergen airport - no signs to where to pick up the bus! ... Read more

Last December we went with Hurtigruten on a Norwegian cruise to see the Northern Lights. We had recently been to Norway with Saga, so it was interesting to make comparisons. We booked directly with Hurtigruten in the UK, whereas other ... Read more

We are on the Richard With now and we are stopped in Bodon for 24 hours. This stop is for Christmas but it is a bit boring. There are some good points and bad points about this cruise. We have cruised a lot and this ship is quite ... Read more

For background we came acrosss the Atlantic by the Queen Mary one of the most luxurious ships afloat so a comparison to that ship is difficult. From all the literature, I was expecting quite a bit older working ship but it does jhold ... Read more

As we are getting married in the Caribbean in November, we decided we would try a small cruise with our twin 3 year olds. It was their first flight and cruise, and our first cruise. Having read the reviews beforehand we knew what to ... Read more

The travel arrangements were fine and as travellers who usually book everything independently, it was good to discover that Hurtigruten seem to have everything down to a fine art. They also give you plenty of information before you leave ... Read more

A cruise with Hurtigruten is really a glorified ferry. The public areas a nice, clean and comfortable although the main bar on Deck 4 was closed for the whole trip. The cabin was nice and plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space meant we ... Read more

My husband & I, lured by promises of the Northern Lights, booked the northbound Hurtigruten cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes departing 23rd December 2011. We also booked an excursion to the North Cape. We arrived at Bergen Airport where we ... Read more

Our first cruise. We chose October to suit our budget, but probably not the best time of year. Its the stormy season - and did we know it at times. The frequent passages in the open sea were challenging - passengers could hardly stand up ... Read more

My husband, 2 yr old son and I just returned from a 12-day Norway voyage on Hurtigruten's Richard With. Cabins - We splurged and booked a mini-suite so we'd have more room with our son, and this gave us more than enough room to move ... Read more

We booked this cruise in the heat of August, and as the date approached and we experienced record cold and snow in the Washington, DC, area, we asked ourselves, "Are we crazy?" We flew to Bergen on February 27th, and stayed in a hotel ... Read more

I just got back from a January cruise on the Sir Richard With with my partner. Winter is a fantastic time of year if you enjoy the snow because the views are breathtaking and there are no crowds at all! The ship was only at about 1/6 of ... Read more

Hurtigruten is an excellent informal cruise experience on a working ship plying the ports north of Bergen to almost Russia. Most of the journey is sheltered from rough sea by a line of islands. The weather is unpredictable and we were ... Read more

My mother and I did the Northbound trip from Bergen to Kirkenes with Hurtigruten in the second week of May. We had a great time overall, and I would definitely recommend it to others. That said, if you're looking for a cruise ship with ... Read more
