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

A friend had the Northern Lights on her Bucket List and I gladly accepted the offer to join her on this cruise. It all started out great until our first night at sea. The ocean wasn’t that rough, but the ship was rolling and rocking a bit. This was when we discovered our cabin, #6054 had a serious noise problem. It sounded like Thor was banging his hammer on a huge metal pipe under our cabin’s ...

Service in restaurant: Could be poor. Twice I sat down by a window. The table was empty. I cleared the crumbs as there was no one around. Great views of the scenery and that is why I came on the cruise. I got told off b two waiters that the table was not accessible because had not been cleared. This was not service to me. Cooked food did not look appetizing to me, not hot. I ...

We chose this cruise for the Northern Lights but mother nature chose not to participate, which is nobodies fault & a chance you take. The disappointing part was the cost of excursions & drinks. We only did 1 excusion as our other was cancelled.Check if your package includes tea & coffee, as a lot didnt have this.Not to mention the hours sitting onboard spent playing cards or reading, as nothing ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
