Great ship - lots of coastal scenery - Northern Lights

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Havila Capella

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Was originally booked on Polaris for January 2023 to see the Northern Lights, but ship delivery issues resulted in a rebooking on a sister ship in November 2023. We had the Lighthouse Suite which is the best cabin on board. This was a winter cruise so daylight hours range from about 8 hours in Bergen to 4 hours in Kirkenes. There was at least one stop every day that had shore excursions - ...

Heading to nowhere

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Havila Capella

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We’ve just disembarked from Havila Capella. I’d give it a wide berth if I were you. We booked an excursion for which we were charged a lot money, it turned out the excursion was only possible in Winter. Not in August. It was refunded via bank wire then charged again on my credit card. I emailed them by they’ve sort of disappeared. Food is scanty. Portions are meager ok if you are on a diet or ...

We loved Havila Castor

Review for a Norway Cruise on Havila Castor

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have sailed Hurtigruten before so we were keen to compare this new cruise line. We sailed 4 nights on the southbound voyage from Tromso to Bergen. We were struck by many things that together made this such an enjoable experience: 1. The friendliness of the crew. Many were seasoned Hurtigruten route experts, they seemed so happy and proud to this new ship. 2. The beauty of the ship - the ...

Wonderful new ship, great sights, food and crew !

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Havila Castor

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose Havila because the ship (actually the Castor, the same model and age is the listed Capella) has a capacity of only some 400 passengers, so is able to navigate the various Arctic fjords on the long northern route up from Bergen all the way to the top of Norway and back. The very high cruise critic ratings for this cruise all proved true - great scenery, Northern Lights visible even in ...

New Ship, New Company - BEAUTY & NORTHERN LIGHTS!

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Havila Capella

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We cruised aboard the “new” cruise ship traveling the Norway coast up to the Arctic Circle. This is the Capella, owned by Havila, a Norwegian company. This cruise took place the last week of Sept. – ending 12 days later. I was unable to find any reviews on Cruise Critic prior to the trip, other than a general overview of the ship’s features. Hopefully this will whet the appetite of those ...
