I'm writing the review that I would have wanted to see myself. Will state upfront I did this cruise to celebrate my 29th birthday across 12 days. If you are "young" and think it would be awkward to go on this cruise, GO! Don't let thoughts about awkwardness make you hesitate and don't think abut that too much. I am someone who had some terrible experiences on land tours and I'm trying cruises, ...

When reading the Hurtigruten publicity for the refitted Trollfjord you would expect to find an exquisite small cruise ship, what you get is an overcrowded cheaply converted coastal ferry. The standard cabins are small with low cost fittings. Our bathroom cabinet didn’t close and the shower fitting fell to bits. The bed was uncomfortable. Dinning was not the highlight one would hope for. ...

We sailed on the Nordlys from Bergen to Kirkenes northbound for 6 nights. We had booked an outside cabin midships Deck 6 with a slightly obstructed view by life rafts so that we didn't have anyone walking past as you would on Deck 5. A couple of days before sailing we were contacted by the Ships Tour guides and offered a suite as an upgrade for a much reduced rate - which we decided to take up. ...

we chose to travel on Hurtigruten Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen because many years ago my in laws did the same trip and said it was the best trip they had ever done, and if we ever found ourselves in Norway we should do it too! Well, we found ourselves in Norway.... Firstly it is not a cruise in any sense, but a working ferry. Do your research before you book. Our cabin was fine - but basic - the ...

We just sailed our 3rd cruise. This was more up our street so to speak as it was in the High Arctic. MS Nordstjernen was a lovely old ship. We had a cabin towards the aft of the ship no window but private bathroom, wardrobe and plenty of space to what we were expecting. This trip was about the surroundings of where you were sailing and not about Comfort of large entertainment complexes ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was a "bucket list" item, to see the coastal scenery of Norway. Every day had an almost endless abundance of raw natural beauty, with many jaw dropping moments, whether it was the midnight sun bursting from behind cloudy/moody mountains, majestic views of hundreds of miles of partially snow-clad mountains and fjords, or Orca gently gliding through a bay. The food exceeded all ...

We wanted to see the Norwegian Coastline during the winter season and also the Northern lights.. This cruise didn't disappoint us. We took the Richard With from Bergen to Kirkenes. It was a stunning trip Mountains covered in ice, villages dotted along the coastline half submerged in ice. Constant snow falling. It was so magical. We had a Mini suite with a full window. we could lie in bed ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

Just completed the 7-day Northbound journey from Bergen to Kirkenses (sort of…more on that later). We did this trip in winter in the hopes of seeing the Aurora Borealis. This trip exceeded our expectations in every way. First, our expectations: It’s a working supply ship, so…rustic, probably dated, not necessarily the most comfortable ship, possibly loud during loading/unloading, boring (very ...

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 ...
