Hurtigruten's Roald Amundsen to Antarctica

Review for a Antarctica Cruise on Roald Amundsen

From the moment we embarked on the ship, until (sadly) leaving it, we had the most amazing and wonderful experience. This ship is exceptional - full height continuous windows in the dining and all public areas - the views were magnificent. Sitting near a window at breakfast time and being able to watch humpback whales play in the water one way and seeing penguins doing their dip and weave dash ...

Our cruise only had about 300 passengers. The entire crew was fantastic! The expedition crew ensured we had as many outings as possible, and our several days we had landings and zodiac cruises. We had terrific weather up until the last landing. They issue boots and you get a complimentary jacket. Hiking poles in different heights are also provided. Food was delicious in the Aune restaurant and ...

We wanted a different experience and we got it ! Vessel completely fulfilled our expectations, from the accommodation, food and safety on board to the pre and post cruise arrangements. Hurtigruten did well in organising our flights and hotel accommodation in Buenos Aires before and after the Cruise. Nothing much to say about Antartica, this is a whole new and different planet, nature ...

Antarctica is a must, but Hurtigruten was a bust

My Mum and I choose this cruise to celebrate her 60th Birthday. We choose Hurtigruten because of their long experience in polar sailing and because of their science program. Antarctica itself was a magical experience but we left regretting our choice of cruise line. Hurtigruten markets itself as luxury for a reasonable price, but make no mistake- they are a budget cruise line with a budget product ...

About us: couple in mid 60's well travelled not always on cruise ships. We have no loyalty to any cruise line and our sole driver is destination, mainly wildlife and scenery. Since visiting a travel show around 4 years ago Antarctica was on our bucket list. Eventually chose Hurtigruten and Roald Amundsen as we thought the price was reasonable and it included the Falklands. Booked as a package ...

We have just completed the 22 day Antarctic tour. What a remarkable experience!Antarctica is like another planet . South Georgia is like a David Attenborough feature. The ship is magnificently designed and styled. The 155 guests were royally cared for by a warm and attentive crew. Landings, snowshoeing , kayaking and zodiac cruises were frequent and supported by 15 expedition leaders who provided ...

A nice ship, an interesting area but massively over-promised on wild-life sightings

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Having been on three previous Hurtigruten cruises we know that the ship size (small), the provision of interesting lectures instead of Abba tribute bands or similar and the unusual itineraries would suit our interests. After flying to Vancouver for one night the plan was then to be flown to Nome in Alaska and cruise down the Bering Sea and then along the Aleutian Islands and the Inside Passage ...

We have travelled with Hurtigruten before (MS Spitsbergen Norwegian coast) but this was sooo much better. We boarded in Reykjavik and it was a little chaotic - a free for all. We were in an Expedition Suite (ME class) which was lovely. Bed was very comfortable, as were the chairs. There was a minibar fridge which was stocked with soft drinks and beers, 4 bottles of wine and jars of nuts. These ...

Amazing Scenery, Wonderful Staff, but a few opps!

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

I've been to over 130 countries and this was a huge 'bucket list' destination for me. Sailing in the Arctic was one of the most beautiful sights of my life. The ship has been nicely refurbished. The staff was wonderful, especially the expedition team. They were very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. was a repositioning voyage so we had more staff than guests. Some disappointments: no working hot ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I chose this cruise after researching small ship cruising that offered opportunities to visit small less visited towns and the areas that the big ships don’t have access to. The cruise has a big emphasis on science with an expedition team led by enthusiastic knowledgeable crew who give passengers the ability and encouragement to submit data, photographs, sightings etc to websites tracking the ...
