A Good Trip, but Not the Best Ever
"I’m still trying to figure out what I think about Hurtigruten. We just finished 10 days from Bergen to Kirkenes and back to Trondheim...an almost round trip...hunting the northern lights on SS Finnmarken. I’ll..."Read More

We had always wanted to do the Norwegian coast and my parents took the journey probably 40 years ago and loved it. Our Swedish friends, who we travel with, suggested we take this trip and we jumped at the chance. We understood this is not a cruise but a trip on a supply ship. We had taken the same type of trip before on the St. Lawrence so we fully understood the difference between cruise and ...

Came on board to accompany a friend and to see the beautiful landscape of Norway. Get ready for many non smiling passengers. The staff can be found doing multiple job assignments. Your room can be attended to by the wait staff. I was happy that our server was attentive to special dietary restrictions. Most speak English fairly well and one guide spoke 6 languages. He seemed like the most ...

I chose this cruise because it was the only one I could find that went all the way up the coast of Norway, through the fjords. Highlights: Bergen (Embarkation Port); Geiranger with Trollstigen Pass Excursion; Calm water in the fjords; Crossing the Arctic Circle; Visiting the North Cape (one of the northernmost point son the European continent); Great hiking trails in every port. The 5:00pm ...

Spectacular views but some tough moments to overlook

We chose Hurtigruten's Norwegian Fjord Cruise North for our 25th wedding anniversary. We traveled as a family of 4 and researched fjord offerings fairly extensively among various cruise lines. We chose Hurtigruten because we generally are not a cruise family and do not prefer the glam and shows of most cruise lines as your are herded from one end of the vessel to the other. Hurtigruten's ...

Embarkation easy and trouble free,food very good breakfast and lunch buffet main meal in the evening served by waiting staff. Cabin size small but adequate no tv no radio in our cabin cleaning not great and bedding never changed I eventually had to ask at reception for new bedding 9 days into cruise and to have the cabin hoovered. The ship layout was good and there are plenty of trips if you are ...

I went with a friend to see the northern lights. Transfers were smooth. The cabin ( a mini suite) was just adequate. I would have hated being in one of the smaller cabins. Cleanliness was just ok. Norovirus was rife on the ship and I felt the cleaning of the public places (eg hand rails, chairs) left a lot to be desired. Pool and Jacuzzi closed because of Norovirus The music on deck 8 ...

I choose the cruise after watched Hurtigruten advertisement about the trip. Yes we have quite high expectation about the trip. The best about this trip that we are able to see a very beautiful aurora somewhere after Tromsø and still able to get some beautiful view of Norway. Before voyage I received all the information I needed and the booking of the trip worked well too. I'm not ...

In October I was on the round trip Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen Hurtigruten cruise on the MS POLARLYS. Some observations about booking via Hurtigruten US. They are just a booking agent for Hurtigruten Norway and they don’t really know the details! Some examples, we booked one of the few Arctic Superior rooms with two lower twin beds. We had seen the cabin plan on the website but it wasn’t the ...

I did the Northbound Voyage from Bergen all the way to Kirkenes with my mom in Fall 2017. This was my first cruise experience. I'll start with the good parts. Good Thing #1 -- The boat's facilities (ours was the MS Nordnorge) were pretty nice. Recently renovated, everything was clean and in good working shape. I most enjoyed the two jacuzzis and the lounges on the top deck. Our cabin was ...

We chose Hurtigruten because we wanted to see Norway's coast & spectacular scenery in detail as one part of our Norwegian holiday. We chose the Nordlys because it fit with our schedule but also because it was an "expedition" ship with more active-oriented excursions available. The scenery itself was 4-5 stars while the ship and onboard experience was 2-3. The best part of the journey was ...
