Overall Member Rating
Hurtigheten. From North to south
Destination: Baltic Sea
The Finnmarken is a newer ship and we had 3rd deck cabin. It had two single beds which folded down from the wall. There was ampel storage plus the ship had clothes washers and dryper. Them supplied the soap and softener.
Food was average. Plentiful breakfast and lunch bufferts, and sit down finner with no menu choice. Dinner alternated between fish and meat. I understood you cloud request a vegetarian finner at noon . Some of the passagers who were on for the entire 13 day trip complained about lack of variety. Drink prices like every thing in Norway was incredibly expensive. When we drove thru Finland we stocked up on beer, soft drinks and snacks. There was.a small refrigerator in the room. There were about 400 passengers More on board. About 10% were English speakers, and the rest from Europe. The ship staff spoke English and announcements were in Norwegian, English and French.
The best part of the trip was the scenry. We took the Sea Eagles excursion and it was great. In looking at the timetable, we knew port times would be short. My biggest regret was not having more time in cities like Tromso. Less
