Spectacular view of nature with hotell qualities

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Done this trip before with the same ship, which satisfied. Corona time has special challenges, and was answered. Food was served with grace and deserved a Michelin star or two. The view of the Norwegian coastline is always and once in a lifetime experience, even for one seen it several times before. And no matter the weather you get. Late in the year - from October - you got good chances for the ...

Sunny Norway on a small “working” ship.

When Norway opened to Covid-19 vaccinated tourists in July 2021, the time for the 5000 km Bergen - Kirkenes - Bergen Hurtigruten trip was just right. The reduced occupancy (just slightly over 100 people in the cabins, plus the hop on, hop off passengers) of the smallest ship in the fleet made the journey quite special. Not to mention the weather, which was really cooperating. Nine sunny days ...

Exceptional nature, ship and services not up to standards

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The first thing to be noted is that a classic Hurtigruten voyage is not a cruise. The Hurtigruten concept is based on a combination of transporting freight as well as passengers along the Norwegian coast. During the full voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes and back 34 ports are entered, some of them even twice. In most of the ports the ship only stops 15-30 minutes to load and unload freight and ...

We are a married couple of 63 and 66 years, and have long wanted this trip to see Norway from the coastal side. It was a wonderful experience. Norway showed its high mountains and deep fjords from its best side. On the ship which is not very big, we got beautiful food from Norwegian local ingredients and good service, and good information about the places we passed. No stressful ...

Disappointing

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We had chosen this cruise to be able to experience the coast of Norway and sample Norwegian specialities. The cruise delivered on the former but not the latter. Restaurant are in urgent need of training to be customer oriented, and acted like they were doing passengers a favour by being there. Although there was an effort to accommodate the food restrictions of some of the passengers in our ...

Public areas don’t have enough seats, generally overpriced

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

Even in times of corona, where the ship is maximum 60% full, the seats in the public areas are not enough. I would not want to travel on this or similar ships when 100% of its capacity can be used. Looking at the Norwegian coastline surely is beautiful but it’s also more or less the only thing you can do on board so it’s very disappointing if you can’t enjoy it properly because of not enough ...

Great Norwegian scenery

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We have always wanted to experience going with Hurtigruten along the Norwegian coast, and the scenery was amazing. We started in the beautiful town of Bergen and went all the way to Kirkenes. Embarkation and disembarkation were both very easy and well-organized, although there were some slight confusion about when and where to put the suitcases before disambarkation. The staff were all very ...

Review for Lofoten to Norwegian Fjords

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I chose this for the country (Norway) plus the adventurous aspect of the excursions. I read that this year is the ship’s last year of sailing and it was the last time to experience a different type of cruise. The ship is stylish and whilst old still offers a comfortable, low key holiday. The staff were second to none, especially as they were dealing with the ever-changing unprecedented ...

I recently did the voyage north on this Hurtigruten ship. It was my 7th cruise with Hurtigruten. Whilst the Norwegian coastline scenery was beautiful I found the ship to be very crowded with a number of special interest tour groups. It appears that Hurtigruten are now focusing on this sector of the market and unfortunately, at least on this cruise it came at the expense of individual travellers. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I went on this cruise with my brother and his wife. We had always wanted to visit Norway and thought the winter cruise with the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights would be a great idea. We were not disappointed - we did see the lights although personally I was disappointed that they appeared like grey "clouds" and it was only through a good camera lens where the exposure could be left ...
