Unforgettable cruise on a very small and modern ship

The Hurtigruten trip with MS Spitsbergen was definitely one of the best holidays we ever had! Besides the beautiful landscape of the Norwegian coast, the size of the ship was perfect (small), the interior was ...

Expensive mistake

Went on this voyage to see the Northern Lights. NO Northern Lights. Hurtigruten advertise a free trip if you do not see them, but you have to have an inside cabin, pay through the nose for your food. A real ...
