Simply Stunning Antarctica Experience

I chose Hurtigruten because I wanted an educational experience of Antarctica that was as authentic as possible. Hurtigruten features history and science lectures and activities, instead of casinos, crowds, and glitzy shows. Hurtigruten’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility was also an important contributing factor to choosing to travel with them. My cabin, even though among the ...

Antarctica was my last continent and it truly did not disappoint. I never thought I would be able to look at a group of penguins and pick them out or go boating in an ice field. The team really worked to provide the best options given the weather and changing conditions. The restaurants were great especially the Freidhiem which offered a changing menu and offered to customize without question. ...

This was an expedition cruise to Antarctica and the Falkland Islands. The trip of a lifetime! The expedition crew and landings were phenomenal, as were the lectures on board the ship. I learned and saw so much. The food was fantastic as well. The ship only has 265 passenger cabins, and we were at less than half capacity due to COVID, so the experience was even better than expected. The pool deck ...

We chose to do this cruise because we got a good offer through Chimu and it was a place we had always wanted to see. The ship is very comfortable and spacious. Our cabin on deck 5 was excellent. The bed was wonderful and we also had a lounge near the window. The storage was good and there were shelves and charging points in many locations. The bathroom was a decent size with a shower with a proper ...

It is with some trepidation that my departure date for the Roald Amundsen cruise to Antarctica, Chilean Fjords and the Falklands approached (Feb.2020). This was due to some pretty horrendous reviews (see Cruise Critic) that the ship received in its maiden voyages particularly to Greenland, Canada and the Northwest Passage. My fears were only alleviated when much improved reviews began to come out ...

Beautiful ship, hybrid, professional team, lots to explore and see. Breath taking views of glaciers and icebergs, penguins, seals, birds, whales. We traveled through the Drake Passage which was the Drake Lake going in and the Drake Shake coming out but we expected that and were ready for it. The crew did an amazing job in all areas. From room cleaning to restaurants to lectures to spa to ...

We recently returned from an Antarctic cruise on Roald Amundsen and I wanted to pass on our impressions on the company, the ship and the cruise. Most people have likely never heard of Hurtigruten unless they have taken a ferry in Norway. The company is best known for operating the ferries that travel up and down the coast of Norway but they also have several cruise ships and do cruises in ...

I always want to go beyond the limits... and this voyage took me further south than 70° latitude, right down to the Antarctic ice fields. An unforgettable experience. Like the entire trip, with quite a few landings on our way up along the Antarctic peninsula to finally reach the Falkland islands before getting back to Punta Arenas. It was quite impressive to see all the different wildlife ...

Initially this cruise offered, Chilean fjords, Cape Horn, Falkland Islands, and various disembarkation points down the Antarctic peninsula. What we got was all the above plus crossing the circle and seeing the pack ice at 70 deg Sth with associated landings and a chance for a solar plunge below the Antarctic circle. I found all ship amenities great with all meals of a very high standard. One of ...

This trip far exceeded our expectations. The new ship was excellent, the crew were very friendly and helpful and the Expedition team were knowledgeable and approachable. We had a comfortable and spacious cabin on deck 5 with a large window. There was a good choice of food in the restaurant and either buffet dinners or fixed seating depending on the daily schedule. The trip is all about what ...
