Complete waste of money

Review for Marella Discovery to Arctic

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Just arrived back from Midnight Sun Cruise with Discovery. This was the worst cruise we have ever been on and I have been on many all over the world. Hurricane Hectar changed our plans and we headed for a safe port. I totally understand this. What I don't understand that when the hurricane passed, we headed south instead of north. I was not alone in thinking this. Many people I spoke to would have ...

Review for Crystal Serenity to Arctic

It was not for the faint-hearted, but still within the realm of a leisurely cruise. It was not an expedition, despite Crystal trying to make it one, but it is not possible to truly combine luxury with back packing. All and all though Crystal succeeded in providing a platform for some wild shore excursions from a luxury platform. The cost was steep, but once on our way we could see why. Zodiacs ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

In 2006, I sailed on this very same vessel to Antarctica. When I heard the ship had been refurbished in 2016 and was now sailing in the Arctic, I was anxious to experience "having sailed to the ends of the Earth" on the same ship. My expectations were exceeded on this cruise! Although the weather was a little bit less than cooperative, the sights of the Norwegian Coast were stunning, and the crew ...

I am an adventurous active solo traveler who likes unusual itineraries and more remote parts of the world. I’ve cruised on at least 12 cruise lines, and the Northwest Passage Expedition Cruise on the “Crystal Serenity” was a unique and remarkable experience for my 49th cruise. The inaugural Northwest Passage Expedition Cruise sailed a distance of approximately 8,370 sea miles. It visited ...

A Memorable First

Crystal did an outstanding job on preparing and organizing this voyage - the largest ship to go through the NW Passage. The expedition leaders were wonderful and made this "first" a very special experience to remember. They made a special effort to connect with the Innuit and we found the people friendly and engaging. I'm sure they learned a lot from this voyage but there's not a lot of room for ...

Review for Norwegian Star to Arctic

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We chose Norwegian Star as it was going to northern Norway and one of our group was particularly keen to visit the North Cape. Whilst my wife and I are regular cruisers (we average 2 a year) the reminder of our group were either novices or had cruised once before. There were 6 of us in total and we joined the ship in Copenhagen, embarkation was relatively painless and despite the check in area ...

Serenade Arctic Circle

Review for Serenade of the Seas to Arctic

I gave the review a four has a compromise rating. We chose this sailing strictly for the itinerary and that truly delivered. This was our 38th cruise, 7th RCI and second on the Serenade, last one being the Inaugural TA in September 2003. Our last RCI cruise was on the Freedom in 2013. The difference between the RCI product offered in 2003 and 2013 was very evident. The difference between 2013 ...

Great Arctic circle cruise

Enjoyed the ports of call as there was great weather and scenery. We had minor rain only on one June day. Traveling above the arctic circle with having no sunset was expected, but still strange. You have to travel in winter to see the northern lights. The two most northern stops were smaller and more desolate, but the southern ports were quaint to larger cities with deep fjords and greenery ...

Review for Koningsdam to Arctic

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

The Koningsdam is a beautiful new ship. The crew is also new, therefore still needs to be fully trained. The service in dining room is quite slow requiring 2+ hours for dinner. The dining room food is good, but not excellent. The Tamarind however is excellent. There are premium dining venues that are poorly attended. There should be more included dining options. The Lido table cleaning is ...

We chose this cruise for the destination, Norway all the way to above the Arctic circle. We also wanted to experience a new ship after seven previous HAL cruises. As usual, the demographic is "mature". There were over 800 Dutch passengers due to publicity and promotion in the Netherlands. We enjoyed the cruise very much, aided by exceptional weather and smooth seas. Here are our hits and ...
