My woman and I had an excellent cruise in summer 2017 with MS Midnatsol to Norway's fjords, so we wanted to make another cruise to see the northern lights in Norway. It was sometimes adventurous and challenging, because the weather was more stormy than in many years before. So the agenda of some days had again to be scheduled. My compliments to our tourist guide and the hotel manager who ...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Oddgard at the reception desk was especially helpful. Every time we had a question, he found an answer. We wanted to rent bikes in a town, but he suggested we rent the ship bikes. Having only a limited time ashore, renting aboard allowed us to maximize our time. He helped us extend our trip aboard the ship. When it was time for us to disembark, he had ...

Hurtigruten could be an interestingly different offer to typical cruise ships as they also provide ferry services along the Norwegian coast and you get to see some areas typical cruise ships would not visit. The itinerary is driven by the deliveries made at 34 ports during day and night - unfortunately that does not always cater well for cruising passengers. Some stops are much too short to ...

Northern Lights experience

My main purpose for the cruise was to view the Northern Lights. Unfortunately, due to the prevailing weather conditions, I was somewhat disappointed - less than what I was expecting. However, the amicability and interaction between crew and travellers, and between travellers more than compensated for this. An unanticipated side benefit was being able to connect with fellow passengers as ...

Exploration of the Norwegian Coast and ports on a working post and freight boat

I chose this cruise in order to explore the Norwegian coast, its islands, its scenery, its ports and its people. As a boating enthusiast I was also interested in the navigation of this `inside passage`, and the essential functions of this ship in linking many remote communities, transporting people and freight between them. I was not disappointed on any of these counts. The journey was ...

Great range of excursions. Concert in Arctic Cathedral in Tromso a special experience. The chance to see the sea eagles up close not to be missed. Food was excellent quality, variety, fresh and typical of the regions we were sailing through. Staff always helful. Take warm gear as it rained or was windy even though technically summer. Arctic gets 4 days of summer and we missed them. The sunny days ...

I have wanted to do this coastal voyage for many years. I took advantage of the No single supplement offer, the Wi-fi and unlimited Tea and coffee offer as I don't really drink wine or beer. The Cabin was excellent - I was able to choose which one I wanted when booking (full board booking). My only gripe was that the heating wasn't working and they were not able to fix it, however they would ...

This is a working boat so quite a different experience from your regular cruise. We loved it as it made it all the more interesting, not your usual luxury (although the rooms were very comfortable indeed) and so perhaps attracted a different type of customer (with my previous experience of a cruise ship I found there was a lot of snobbery with people dressing in gowns and pearls for dinner rather ...

We chose the Vesteralen because not being a fan of crowds and large cruise ships, her size fitted us perfectly. From the moment we checked in until our disembarkation 12 days later, we were charmed and totally satisfied with the entire experience. The crew are happy and helpful, the food was well presented, varied and delicious, and the ship was extremely comfortable. Our cabin was small, but ...
