Great experience with outstanding staff
"They also had a good sense of humour and seem proud to talk about aspects of the trip, Scandinavian culture and everyday life in Norway, Unusually the weather was also fantastic, Choose excursions carefully as some are probably not worth the money, We did a full 11 days from Bergen all the way north and then returned to Bergen.It is important to recognise if you want a traditional cruise do not blindly go for this trip but if you really want to find out about Norway and the fjords then this needs serious consideration...."Read More

Poor service, poor ship

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Trollfjord

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. ...

Outstanding

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Trollfjord

I wanted to see the fjords and what better way than on a working ship. I was travelling with a friend on my first cruise. It was amazing. The crew were outstanding and everything went like clock work. Excellent lectures and excursions to suit everyone. These were also graded in terms of fitness and disability. A massive variety of food catering for all tastes and diets with nothing being too much ...

Fantastic opportunity to visit ports along the coast of Norway.

This cruise came highly recommended by a friend. Our itinerary was 6 nights from South to North ending in Kirkenes. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of visiting the different ports along the coast. It was very interesting to see what happened at each port, sometimes just supplies were loaded or post was delivered. At other times, passengers embarked or disembarked. We ...

We chose this cruise because it explored the fjords all the way up to the northern most points of Norway. It is not a cruise ship in the conventional sense but instead combines being a working boat and a cruise ship. Our cabin was fine with a good view on deck 6. The food was good quality and the restaurant staff were excellent. The excursion staff combined selling excursions with being ...

A fantastic cruise along the Norwegian fjords to the land of the midnight sun..

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because of Hurtigruten's reputation for providing the best and most authentic trip to the North Cape of Europe. We really liked the idea that we would be travelling on a "working boat" which was still an important link for many of the more remote communities on the Norwegian north coast. The trip was well beyond our expectations. The boat was very comfortable, with our ...

Blown Away by Crew and Vessel

I sailed from KKN to TRD with MS Trollfjord and at first thought i booked too many excursions and would not be able to enjoy the vessel. But my god I was wrong. The entire experience has left its mark on me. I cannot stop talking about it to my friends and family. The crew are willing to go above and beyond, the ship is clean and the perfect size. I believe I heard somebody say there were approx ...

Good weather, a ship half empty, and a very fine navigation program. Land excursion very costly, as beverages onboard. Wonderful French speaking guide. Wonderful Chef. These cruise is largely weather dependant, so... hope for the best. Area for improvement: expeditions more accessible, beverage as well, better transportation to/from the ship, avoid additional costs such as ...

Deep insight into Norway

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We choose this journey to see the beautiful Norwegian landscape on the traditional "Postschiff", hoping to maybe get in contact to Norwegians and gain a deeper insight into the country than on a normal cruise ship. The excellent expedition team fulfilled this wish more than perfectly. They offered lectures, answered questions, always friendly and helpfully. The cabins are not luxurious but ...

Selected because we wanted to see the Northern Lights and the cruise was available in a Black Friday sale. Overall was a excellent adventure but even with a reduced sale price it was still expensive. Northern Lights appeared but if I have small tip it is to use a good phone camera for best results. I have a decent DSLR but a lot of playing with settings. Those with expensive Apple and Samsung ...

We have always wanted to experience going with Hurtigruten along the Norwegian coast, and the scenery was amazing. We started in the beautiful town of Bergen and went all the way to Kirkenes. Embarkation and disembarkation were both very easy and well-organized, although there were some slight confusion about when and where to put the suitcases before disambarkation. The staff were all very ...
