Amazing cruise of British Isles

Review for Maud to Baltic Sea

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We had done a fantastic Norwegian Coastal Cruise/ Northern Lights with Hurtigruten 5 years ago. We so admired the focus on science, shore experiences and excellent food. The British Isles cruise offered even more off-boat excursions and the varied talents of the expedition guides made for a lifetime of memories. The offerings gave very active guests plenty of stimulation while also offering ...

An expedition, not a cruise, with many scientific experts on board to help, talk and lecture, with their own areas of expertise. Particularly good if you were interested in bird and sea wildlife and the geology of our country / islands. We were travelling to some remot'ish islands and taking into account all safety issues they managed to get us to land at all the destinations. All bar about ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Very nice ship with an outstanding crew. Our trip was enjoyable but lacked much of what Crystal promoted about this new expedition ship. There were no helicopters, no submersible, underwater cameras were not in use and they were only experimenting with the gimbal camera. Almost all that the ship offered in terms of stops could have been completed on their larger ships at a much lower cost. Our ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

Great WiFi and easy to get on and off the boat, great butter and cheese...other than that is was like being on a geriatric prison boat. Same food everyday Extremely minimal service Small Dark rooms with the toilet separate from the sink. No bars to sit at No comfortable seating Morose staff Not enough staff 2 hours to eat each meal and then nothing else... Very little to ...

Negative was the english lectures which were poor and limited. As this is a french ship, there was separate lectures for the french-speaking. All announcements were in dual languages. French passengers were friendly but we did not socialize together because of our large group. Staff was friendly. I would go again on this cruise line just because of the food. The pastry chef was outstanding. The ...

Ponant cruise lines chartered the Le Dumont D'Urville to Thomas P Gohagan & Co. who then marketed the Baltic Sea cruise primarily through college/university alumni offices, Smithsonian Journeys, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Philadelphia Council on World Affairs, etc. So the cruise passengers were members of the various alumni groups and marketing organizations and each of the ...

Review for Le Laperouse to Baltic Sea

In August, 2018, we first cruised along the coast of Croatia on Le Lyrial. It was fabulous-great weather, beautiful scenery with clear bright skies and turquoise waters. Our choice to do the Laperouse cruise was in part due to coordinating it with the end of the Croatian cruise on Le Lyrial. We had a wonderful week in between the two cruises in Portugal before embarking on Le Laperouse. The ...

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

We have cruised over 50 times and were looking for different ports. This one was called Across the Baltic to Scandinavia. The National Geographic and Lindblad experts were excellent. Each day had a choice of two or three tours, all included, and sometimes in both morning and afternoon. Before we went, we saw a discussion on whether wine would be included with dinner. It is and they are ...

Review for Nordnorge to Baltic Sea

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I had been meaning to travel with Hurtigruten for some time and wanted to visit Norway in winter, having been in summer several times. Being on the Nordnorge felt like being part of a small community. The staff were really friendly and the food excellent. I don't eat meat and was offered fish or vegetarian options. The staff seemed genuinely interested to hear if I liked the choice. The buffet at ...

Beautiful Scenery, Natural Beauty, Disappointing Hurtigruten Cruise

Review for Richard With to Baltic Sea

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We booked our cruise in New York City with a Hurtigruten Representative on the Richard With. We were not told about several things in advance as follows: Wine Package Water package Free single supplement. Lack of entertainment of any kind on board. (In fact we were told that there was live music in the lounge.) As soon as you step on board the ship you are given a hard sell about the ...
