Hurtigruten Vesteralen Cruise Reviews for Senior Cruises to Europe

-- / 5.0

Vesteralen III in Trollenfjord - photo taken from the eagle safari small boat.
Impressive Steilneset monument in Vardø - at this short stop a decision has to be made what to see. The fortress or this modern architecture. For me the “witches monument” was the choice and I even managed to have glimpse of the fortress on the way.
Each visited port has something to offer - this time Molde.
Nordkapp at noontime on a sunny day with almost no people - that’s the situation after the C19 pandemic.

I need glutenfree meal and everythings was ok, very delicius and I got my special food. The cabin is enough for such a trip. The beds are very good, we slept wonderfull. The all view of the ship is excellent. The crew is very friendly and competent. We got all information about everything and we like the crew very much. We specially chose a small and family ship. And our mind was super. We ...

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 ...

We chose to do a Hurtigruten trip as a once in a lifetime experience to see the Northern lights and to experience the beauty of the coastline from the comfort of the ship. B Unfortunately the first cabin we were allocated was the worst accommodation I have ever experienced, too small for two people ( to be frank only just acceptable for one) barely room to move past each other, storage space ...

I wanted to go on a small manageable ship which this was. The standard of food, cabins, cleaning and detailed information, was excellent. I booked lots of excursions and enjoyed them, but in hindsight would have toured the towns without a guide, except for Trondheim, where the guide was useful. I would have liked more time when we docked to have seen museums, but this was not always ...

Solo Trip

I bought trip by phone, from Australia to UK, as no local office, so had to pay in £, thus more conversion fees. I had seen an ad online about reduced fare for solo travel from Kirkenes to Bergen. Each ship is different, and I realised I was on an old one. A newer one has far more facilities. I got the cheapest cabin, without porthole, which was fine. It can be very noisy at night due to ship ...
