I thought the classic round trip would give me the best opportunity to see the Northern lights. Overall the trip exceeded my expectations. The ship was very good and run in an efficient way. The staff were very hardworking, particularly the restaurant waiter service. Their language skills & friendly service were excellent. I cannot fault the choice and standard of food. Yes the excursions ...

If you are an 'occasional' cruiser and prefer the smaller ships and more personal service, this may be for you. Hurtigruten ships fit into the small ship category and we were lucky enough to benefit from the recent new fit-out of The Polarlys, our home for the round trip of 12 days.
