Stay away from Hurtigrutin: Nordlys Cruise Review by NJ-Fan
Overall Member Rating
Stay away from Hurtigrutin
Destination: Baltic Sea
Food was good, not excellent. Dining room waiters and waitresses were excellent. With one exception, all cruise directors and officers on the ship were unfriendly, at times quite unprofessional and rude. Dining room always opened late with long lines waiting to get in.
Disembarkation area was always cramped. Information about what would happen to your baggage at the end of the cruise when one had to go on an excursion was nonexistent to confusing, once you pursued it. Excursions were quite expensive as well as beverages.
This is a working boat, carrying cargo and passengers between ports and therefore the cost for the cruise was outrageously high. We have taken numerous other cruises and all our previous experiences were positive. Quite disappointed that this dream cruise of mine was a total More disappointment. You can spend your money much better elsewhere even though the idea of midnight sun and northern lights are very appealing. Less
We had an outside cabin in the lowest level. It was quite adequate and comfortable.
