Mission Accomplished; Serious Reservations about Hurtigruten
"Just returned from a six-night trip from Bergen to Kirkenes. While we did sail on the MS Polarlys I think my comments are germane to all of Hurtigruten's ships. The main purpose of our trip was to see the Northern..."Read More

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 ...

Not good

So the ship is a working ferry and it desperately needs a refurbishment. Scuffed carpet, stuffing coming out of chairs in the lounge etc. Coffee machines that don't work. The ship made roughly 20+ stops but most of them are for only 15 minutes so you cannot get off. I was able to get off in Alesund (gorgeous), Bodo (gorgeous), Trondheim (gorgeous) and Tromso (gorgeous) and Honningsvag (gorgeous). ...

Not value for money

Chose this due to fantastic marketing by Hurtigruten but the reality does not live up to the marketing. The Norwegian coast is not how it's portrayed in promotional material and the towns are not quaint fishing village types but industrial towns. Not very attractive. The food was OK and varied choices buffet style for breakfast and lunch. Set dinner served most nights, portion size small. Buffet ...

Spectacular views, OK staff, but terrible, stingy organization. Truly irritating experience booking excursions. The agents constantly referred us to the online info. However, the online information was wrong, and had been wrong since before it was published online. We recommend you verify any of your important assumptions with a human, even if you have to push them to great confirmation from ...

Great scenery, good food, indifferent and rude service.

This cruise was all about the scenery which was made even better by the near perfect weather. The food was quite good. They offer buffet breakfast and lunch. Dinner is table service with a fixed menu. They offer an a la carte service in a different dining room for an additional 500 - 800 NOK. I could never get an adequate explanation for what the value was for a different meal service. As best I ...

Obviously Under-Staffed

I chose this cruise because of the Northern Lights Astronomy Voyage theme. I am very satisfied with the lectures and viewings organized by Dr John Mason and Inger Carter and I would highly recommend their program. However, Hurtigruten really fell through on there responsibility to provide services during the voyage. The cruise ship was obviously under-staffed as confirmed by personnel that I ...

Slow Boat to another port to see the Northern lights

We wanted to see the Northern Lights and having failed to see them on a 3 day visit to Iceland our research convinced us that a cruise along the Norwegian coast may provide the best opportunity. Indeed this holiday offer guaranteed a siting or else we would get another 6 day cruise for free. We were well advised on what to bring for the trip but because Carole is Lactose intolerant we made it ...

Hurtigruten Astronomy Voyage Cruise Disappointment

Very disappointing cruise. This was my 5th cruise and I thought that I had done all of the research needed prior to booking the cruise. If you believe the brochure and the advertising you would think you are booking a high-end cruise with exciting destinations. The brochure fails to tell you that when you visit the 34 ports that you do not have the opportunity to get off the ship to visit them as ...

This was our first, and likely last, trip with Hurtigruten. Many months prior to embarkation, we had selected a cruise offered only once per year, the "classic cruise" with a Viking supplement; i.e. an expert, Gareth Williams, from the British Museum would be on board and lecturing on Viking history. While awaiting our flight from LAX to Stockholm, we received an email from our travel agent that ...

My wife and I booked this cruise with Readers Offers from the daily newspapers. We flew to Bergen to meet the ship but were told, along with all the other passengers, that the ship was delayed because of bad weather. We were accommodated in a hotel in Bergen whilst waiting for the ship. In reality, the ship was delayed from dry dock in Denmark and the maintenance staff were still working on the ...
