A wonderful experience with excellent staff and services

The location of this cruise was the determining factor for me as I wanted specifically to visit Norway whilst not having to repack continually. We were a little concerned about the quality of the cruise, having read adverse reviews but it couldn't be further from the truth. The cruise was wonderful, the staff consistently gave excellent, friendly service. The food was superb, if heavy on the ...

I wanted to cruise the Norwegian coast and Hurtigruten provides a very safe experience. We were told if the weather is really bad, they ships wait it out until it's safe to proceed which is nice to hear after the Viking disaster. The cabins are small but adequate. I travelled with a friend but we chose to have separate cabins. 12 days together in one small cabin would have been ...

Excellent BUT this needs to be dealt with

I have just returned from the round trip on Finnmarken. Hurtigruten provides an excellent voyage and some stunning scenery. Much has been said about the trips so I will not add to the many reviews. BUT, Hurtigruten and probably other cruise lines MUST deal with the problem of mobile phone usage. WE witnessed people taking calls on speakerphone and coupled with their loud voices this was a massive ...

A "Must" if you want to see the Northern Lights!

This Cruise has been on our "Bucket List" for the past ten years. Earlier this month we eventually boarded the Hurtigruten, Finnmarken and was pleasantly surprised. Being under the impression that this is a "working" ship, we found the amenities being similar and equal to that of other "Commercial/Passenger Liners. Calling at most of the small towns on the Coast Line, makes this a ...

To see the Northern Lights was on our bucket list. We were not disappointed! On our third night, we received notification that the lights were visible. We threw on the warm clothing and rushed outside, only to be greeted by Nature's miracle. As we sailed up the coast of Norway, we were treated to this phenomenon every night! We were also treated to many marvelous fjords along Norway's ...

This was our first experience of a cruise proper (we had previously sailed to New York on the Queen Mary II). We went principally as a way, we hoped, of seeing the Northern Lights. We were most unfortunate in that the weather was not very good - rain and low cloud plus strong winds. However, we did see the Northern Lights on three occasions although they were a little weaker than ...

I recently went on the Hurtigrutem MS Finnmarken for an 11 night cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes and then back to Bergen, stopping at 34 ports. It was amazing, the scenery and excursions offered were fantastic. The ship while a little tired looking and not a luxury cruise liner, was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. I shared a outside basic cabin with my Mother and although we had ...

My husband chose this cruise for my birthday as I had always wanted to see the Northern Lights. Unfortunately we didn't see them but the cruise was really good. The places we visited were unique and the people were so friendly. The snow was amazing and the views from the ship really spectacular, even at 3 in the morning! We would like to do a cruise again maybe in the springtime to see the ...

Most Amazing Aurora with excellent service

Saw the most amazing aurora, it was visible on 6 of the 7 possible nights. Great food on board with a nice selection and a very nice sized cabin. All the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Although some of the stops were very short it provided a great opportunity to see Norway and sailing so close to land all the time the journey was very smooth most of the time. Would definitely go ...

This trip on the Finnmarken was a re-run of a similar cruise we had made several years ago on the M/S Lofoten. Onboard entertainment was limited mainly to port lectures but as we had travelled this way previously and also matured in age we were happy to relax with a book or watch the scenery drift by. The cabin on Deck 3 (N4) was larger than many others on the higher decks as the outside ...
