The Northern Lights danced all over the sky.
"We booked this voyage hoping to see The Northern Lights and we did. 4 nights out of 6 the Aurora was there in all her glory. 12 sightings in all. That's what I call success! We've cruised on 'cruise ships';..."Read More

Expensive excursions (could be ...

My husband and I took the 12 days Norwegian Coastal Voyage hoping to see the Northern Lights. I love the ship—it is just the right size, small but still comfortable. Our cabin 621, even with an obstructed view, was wonderful. You could actually see a little land, sea and sky. The bed was firm with a wonderful down comforter. A lot of storage space, including under the bed. The bathroom was ...

Excellent cruise, but you’ll have to remember this is not at traditional cruise but a coastal line on the norwegian coast from Bergen to Kirkenes and back again with several port calls each day. So in addition to cruise guests doing the whole or parts of the roundtrip, there will be guests sailing form one port to another and shipping goods in and out in the different ports. MS Spitsbergen is ...

This cruise was exactly as advertised! It's a working ship and has been in the business of transporting goods and people up and down the Norwegian coast for 125 years. There are many stops and you can get off a quite a few of them, if you like. We did some excursions through the ship and some on our own. All were excellent - even if there wasn't enough snow to do a few of them. (Mother Nature ...

This ship is amazing, extremely friendly and well laid out. (we were on deck 6). Food is out of this world and the views last the whole of the voyage. I don't think this will ever be bettered. We had blue skies, snow, amazing clouds, northern lights (3 times). The excursions are expensive but i didn't hear anyone complain. We did the huskies in the north, Kirkenes, which was great in blue ...

We boarded MS Spitsbergen in Bergen. We arrived In Bergen just after 2pm and the Hurtigruten bus picked us up at 3pm to take us to the ship. The staff at the check in counter was extremely friendly and the safety talk beforehand was also informative. Seeing the ship we were blown away. embarking was smooth and effortless. we did not get off again to explore Bergen as we were fascinated with the ...
