Ship Facts: Nordnorge Review (by Cruise Critic!)
aurora borealis
Our first cruise, I had always wanted to go on a Northern Lights cruise (hubbie not so enamoured as likes the warmth.) Booked on line, not daunted by the fact that hadn't heard of the booking company. Fully expected a "cruise",i.e. travelling in style, calling in at places of interest, booking on the boat etc. Bit let down on several counts, i.e. not informed that the ship was a ferry/cargo boat and that it would be calling in at thirty or so ports to pick up both passengers &/or cargo. Rather basic cabins (not having taken a cruise before we obviously didn't know what to expect!) Cramped conditions but, hey ho, one doesn't spend a lot of time in the cabin. We did both suffer from minor skin irritations ? bugs (ugh) and had to buy anti-histamine cream. On boarding ship with suitcases, no assistance available to lug these up rather narrow metal stairs (due to height of quayside) therefore wouldn't advise anyone with even slight disability to consider this. Wise to ask about this before booking! & to mention any infirmity.

Food ok but could be repetitive and be prepared for the fact the fish is mainly on the menu. No choice of menu for dinner which was disappointing!

We did have a shock on discovering price of drink & meals out.. beware!

Plus points - very clean ship (apart from suspect bugs in cabin!) charming staff and a brilliant Hurtigruten tour manager who worked long hours and was a mine of information.
