Public areas don’t have enough seats, generally overpriced

|

Even in times of corona, where the ship is maximum 60% full, the seats in the public areas are not enough. I would not want to travel on this or similar ships when 100% of its capacity can be used. Looking at the ...

Great Norwegian scenery

We have always wanted to experience going with Hurtigruten along the Norwegian coast, and the scenery was amazing. We started in the beautiful town of Bergen and went all the way to Kirkenes. Embarkation and ...

Expensive ferry boat, not a cruise

I don’t think I’ll ever do the Hurtigruten again. First it was very expensive, over 5000 kr per person for a 36 hour trip from Bergen to Trondheim going through Geiranger. We ordered the Arctic Superior room ...

Great cruise - highly recommended

I went on this cruise with my brother and his wife. We had always wanted to visit Norway and thought the winter cruise with the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights would be a great idea. We were not ...

A 'must do'

This cruise was chosen because our previous cruises to Norway with P&O had not gone as far north. Booking direct with Hurtigruten meant that we were covered by their travel arrangements eg charter flight to ...

Amazing Experience

I'd wanted to see the Northern Lights and go on a cruise for years. I'd looked at Hurtigruten along with other companies. The Hurtigruten seemed expensive but offered fewer 'on board' activities (musicals, casino, ...

An exciting and entertaining experience.

This cruise was initially offered to us by another company but we ultimately decided we would be getting a better experience and better value for money. Embarkation and disembarkation went well. The ship was ...

A mess from the start

This was my 3rd Hurtigruten Cruise in 3 years and I loved the Nordkapp and Fram. The Nordlys was a huge disappointment in almost all categories. The cabins are small, but that is expected. Worse yet, my cabin had a ...

We loved the variety of the ports on this cruise. Bergen was a cute little town and quite a contrast to St. Petersburg. The small ports are easy to navigate directly from the ship. We enjoyed doing a little ...
