Service in a time of dufficulties

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Lofoten

florencesm
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I chose this for the country (Norway) plus the adventurous aspect of the excursions. I read that this year is the ship’s last year of sailing and it was the last time to experience a different type of cruise. The ship is stylish and whilst old still offers a comfortable, low key holiday. The staff were second to none, especially as they were dealing with the ever-changing unprecedented ...

Eventful, adventurous, atmospheric sea voyage through the Norwegian archipelago

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Lofoten

Hurtighurtig
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Already the third winter trip with one of the old, small, listed ship of the Hurtigrute. The mood on the Norwegian coast is particularly romantic at this time: every day is like Christmas day. However, violent storms and hurricanes must be expected in winter. The MS Lofoten has no stabilizers, so the ship can have violent movement. But it is very safe! Living together on board is very ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I planned his travel with this old, but excellent Lady and her friendly and competent crew along Norway's coasts and the cities, to see the Northern Light an have fantastic meals an dinners, to meet new freinds on board. For deseased people this ship isn't a good idea: no lifts and many stairs! The whole crew incl. the captain and the officers are friendly an help to made all my wishes becomes ...

Wonderful days on a wonderful ship.

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Lofoten

Sofafrosch
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The Ship is wonderful. The cabins are small but enough. The dining was extremely good. I can't say something about the excursions, because i was on tour with a broken arm and it was to dangerous for me to make excursions. So I was only on the ship. The excursions were to expensive for my opinion because they are short. The service was really good. I think I will do this tour again next year. The ...

Backpacker experience at premium price

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Lofoten

ngataringa
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Classic ship on iconic route - what could be better? A lot, as it turns out: The route does not offer much fjord experience, mostly you trundle coast-wise behind the outlying islands. Most places the time in port is too short for sightseeing. Once in open seas, this little ships rocks. And rolls. Keep your seasickness pills handy. The company has a museum at its place of origin. Don't expect to ...

Classic Voyage Bergen-Bergen

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Lofoten

Kevgy
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

The MS Lofoten crew were brilliantly friendly and helpful and several passengers were so fond of the ship and crew that they were on a repeat voyage. Unfortunately, I was not to become so endeared to the ship. MS Lofoten is a 55 year old Ferry. It was designed as a Ferry. It was built as a Ferry. It is operated as a Ferry. Many people (and cargo) use it as a Ferry. It is not a “cruise” ship. ...

Voyage of a lifetime

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Lofoten

MikeS19
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We went to enjoy a voyage on the grand old lady (MS Lofoten) of the Hurtigruten again. The combination of the ship, crew, food, fellow passengers, weather, scenery, excursions, and overall ambience would have been great even without five mind-wowing nights with Northern Lights displays. The breakfast and lunch buffets were both full of different varieties of fish - at least seven different ...

Lovely Old Fashioned Cruise

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Lofoten

TrevorFoxy
2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

The MS Lofoten is now 50 years old and maintains a small hotel feel, with none of the trappings of a large cruise ship. The passengers are a mix of singles and couples doing either the northbound trip, southbound trip and circular trip from Bergen to Kirkenes to Bergen. Staff on board are very friendly and the food is amazing. However if you are not adventurous with your food then try a ...

Hurtigruten disappointment

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Lofoten

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My partner and I went on a Northern Lights Cruise with Hurtigruten along the coast of Norway. We had been planning this for some time and were really looking forward to it. Norway is a beautiful country but the 'cruise' was very disappointing. If you are planning to go with Hurtigruten to Norway make sure you know what you are booking. There were so few passengers on our trip that the ...

A great old ship

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Lofoten

pgoestravelling
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

The MS Lofoten is a lovely old ship (48 years old). The key word here is "old" -- it creaks and rattles a bit, it is faded in parts, it has no stabilisers, it has "no" many things and that is why people choose it. The crew work hard at maintaining it. We found them cleaning the outside windows at 11 pm when we were in one port, and the cleaner on board seemed to be polishing the brass and sweeping ...
