Fabulous expedition cruise

This cruise was absolutely fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The expeditions were super well organised and extremely interesting. The expedition crew were so knowledgeable, informative, funny and inspiring! Best science lessons I have ever experienced! Field trips are so exciting - for any age! The underwater drone was fascinating especially when looking at shipwrecks and the sea ...

Having travelling with Hurtigruten previously and had an excellent experience, we chose them for the Northern Lights trip. The trip was excellent with different excursions and a a superb expedition team making the whole trip informative, inspiring and interesting. During the visit we managed to see the Northern Lights as well as stunning scenery, whales and other wildlife and go on ...

Great way to experience coastal Norway

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

Hurtigruten’s “Expedition” series cruises are half-way between a traditional cruise and an adventure expedition. The food is top class, plentiful and well managed but the choice of restaurants, bars and dining experiences is limited. The on-board entertainment centres around lectures, craft activities etc and there are no “shows” or anything of the like. There is no casino. The focus is on ...

We chose the ultimate winter expedition for the number of days and stops in the cruise up the Norwegian coast, and also for the Northern Lights promise. The ship is perfect for visiting the fjords annd sails through some epic scenery that larger cruise ships could not access. The ship is maintained in excellent and very clean condition it’s smaller size also made for a more relaxing and friendly ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We were sent a link by Hurtigruten to fill in this review. We purchased this cruise after watching a channel 5 documentary on Hurtigruten Norwegian Cruise. What we got is NOT what we watched on TV or the itinerary we booked as per the photos on this review. Hurtigruten are not an easy company at all to contact or deal with so be aware of this fact please. Once on board Maud it becomes very ...

We chose Hurtigruten because we'd never go on a " traditional" cruise. Huge ships, thousands of people, casinos, theatres, dancing, loud music, bingo, posh clothes for dinner is just not us. We do like walking, exploring new places, the natural world, photography. I'm also not keen on flying, so when we found that Hurtigruten now has MS Maud based in Dover, running trips around western ...

“Expedition” cruise from Dover to Svalbard

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

If anyone is thinking of booking the same trip I thought I’d set out our views, just in case it helps someone decide whether to take it or not. I know some people loved it but I also know my views were shared by some other passengers on the trip. I will explain the “expedition” later, but following 2 covid cancelled MS Spitzbergen trips (Svalbard and Iceland) we booked the September 2022 ...

A Fantastic Expedition, not a Cruise

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Maud

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was a three week Expedition Voyage into the Arctic and Svalbard. We were most certainly not on a cruise being 'entertained'. It was a voyage of discovery, where every day we learnt something new. The itinerary changed on an almost daily basis, due to the weather, and other external factors. But the expedition team coped well with the frequent need to re-plan landings. Some days we ...

I chose this Expedition cruise as it had a great itinerary around the remote Scottish Isles. Particularly good if travelling alone as I found crew and passengers really friendly and helpful. The expedition team were great. Customer services desk staff excellent for sorting out any queries or problems. Cabin lacked space to put your clothes as no drawers and only 1 small wardrobe. Not ...
