Richard With - Hurtigruten

Pros

Outstanding food, superb service, bucket-list excursions and a number of suites which offer a luxury experience

Cons

Lower inside cabins are cramped and noisy; no late-night entertainment at all; sauna too small for everyone trying to cram inside

Bottom Line

You'll love MS Richard With if you like great food, cozy cabins, an extensive range of incredible shore excursions and an intimate vibe
