Fabulous expedition cruise

Review for Maud to Arctic

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 ...

This is a must do. The combination of landscape, safety, very good and healthy nutrition, calmness and a very interesting expedition and board programs is incredible.The excursions were great. Onboard passing a magnificent landscape and being always the number one customer is incredibly good. You see the fabulous coast line of Norway and pass the polar circle and Nordkapp. The menus and buffets on ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I have always wanted to explore more of Canada, especially the arctic regions. And Labrador has always fascinated me. This exploration of Greenland, Labrador (especially the Torngat Mountains) and Newfoundland was fantastic. Adventure Canada brings together a wonderful assortment of folks to add color to the trip, from storytellers to archeologists to naturalists. The zodiac rides brought us from ...

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

Review for Maud to Arctic

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 Maud to Arctic

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 ...

Expectations met

Review for Greg Mortimer (Aurora Expeditions) to Arctic

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise had the combination we wanted: small ship, remote travel, emphasis on wildlife viewing as well as ridge and beach walks/hikes, comfort, and well-traveled expedition guides. Following the trail of explorers searching for the Northwest Passage, we learned about the Franklin expedition and the many search expeditions that followed. Our days were filled with opportunities to go ashore ...

Review for Spitsbergen to Arctic

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was most likely my only trip to Svalbard, and I am angry with myself for not researching this more carefully. We did the Norway coastal journey with Hurtigruten five years ago and had an amazing time, so I thought that I knew the quality we would receive. But this was very different. The greatest disappointment for me was the complete lack of information that we received about the area we ...

Incredible ship from top to bottom. I have done Silversea and Regent and this is ABSOLUTELY my favorite and the most comfortable ship I have ever been on. Entertainment mostly consisted of lectures and they had an absolutely fabulous crew of lecturers. In addition, there was a couple who did opera who were superb and the best violinist I have evere seen play. The food was, by far, the best I ...
