This is not a cruise ship, it's a ferry

Review for Polarlys to Europe - British Isles & Western

The ship is a poor uncomfortable noisy ferry. The cabin (we picked the one with windows and partial view- no other option available) it’s really small. There is a very small closet. The tv shows nothing. The bathroom is so small that you want to shower with open door just to have some air. They clean the cabin daily and they do a good job. The common area are invaded by backpackers who ...

My land tour was cancelled at the last minute and I had to find an alternative. Hurtigruten was all I could find but it is little more than a passenger ferry and an expensive one at that! I could have bought a new car for what I paid Hurtigruten and they‘nickel and dime’ their passengers for everything from extortionate alcohol prices to expensive bus ride excursions which passengers could do ...

We chose this cruise as we were interested in Greenland and it's communities. To some degree we also wanted to see the artic wilderness and glaciers and get an appreciation for the damage that global warming is doing.to these sensitive environments. Fridtjof Nansen is an excellent ship being only a couple of years old. The size of the vessel (500 passengers) makes it a relatively intimate ...

We choose this cruise for two reasons, we thought after covid a cruise around the Uk would be the safest and also it went to many destinations we have never been too. As a wheelchair user I was not expecting to leave the ship unless we were moored at port ( just three) but no the expedition team got me on every Zodiac and landing to places like Iona , Tresco to name but a few . They were ...

4th trip with Hurtigruten and it will be the last. Lie on the brochure. If you plan to go to Svalbard to see walruses, polar bears, do not go with this company which has signed an IATO agreement which forces them to observe these animals at least 500m away so a polar bear will only be visible with good binoculars and even. Food really not good, every day, noon and evening the same ...

This cruise line should stick to ferry service ! Having recently been to Antartica on Swan Hallenic we were expecting much of the same on this Arctic Cruise. We were sadly mistaken for sure, Surly staff in general, they seemed very over worked, except for the bar staff. Nickel and diming for most everything, for example, if you were late for lunch and ate in the restaurant that was ...

Far below our expectations

Review for Nordlys to Europe - British Isles & Western

This Hurtigruten coastal cruise has been on my "bucket list" for 38 years, and now we made it from 16 June to 21 June of 2022. It has always been marketed as something extra, particularly on landscape beauty and food onboard. The landscape did not disappoint us, but everything around the food and restaurants are just worse than bad. Nordlys were lacking 3 chefs on our cruise, but that should not ...

Wanted to see Norway and the Midnight Sun so chose this trip. Being honest the ship is a little tired but to be fair we were given a credit to reflect this. Stayed in the lowest level of suite which proved to be a good choice as the lower grade cabins did look a little small. Only comment on the suite was, although there was good wardrobe space, there were no hooks to hang outdoor wear on ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This expedition cruise appealed to us as it was informal, the pricing was clear and the ship visited a wide range of locations, many never visited by other cruises. In addition there was the option to be as active and adventurous as you liked; kayaking, zodiac cruises, science activities, art and crafts, hiking and just being a tourist were all on offer. Three very good meals a day with ...
