I had, for a long time, a desire to cruise with Hurtigruten and when they offered showcase cruises from UK I booked the first one sailing from Tilbury. The onboard experience surpassed what I had imagined. Embarking was uncomplicated and fairly speedy, considering everyone had to be tested for the Covid 19 virus before boarding the ship. I favoured the idea of checking in on the allocated deck of your cabin. We were given Safety instructions were carried out under cover, and seated - much better than standing out on deck........... uncomfortable and freezing! I have been on many cruises but I found this one less hassle than the others. When using the lifts you could not fail to be impressed with the view. That's all I'll say because I don't want to spoil your surprise. The ship is very modern and tastefully decorated with lots of space. No crowding like sardines. Although there are three dining rooms I chose to eat in the same one as I liked the layout. Everything is so relaxed but orderly - there's no queueing at the buffet at breakfast or lunchtime. Evening meals were generally waiter service. Each one of the staff and crew were cheerful and polite. Read Less

I wanted to see Hurtigruten's new Hybrid cruise ship and experience the expedition cruise concept. This is a great way to travel for the environmentally conscious cruise customer. Check in, embarking and disembarking was always smooth. This is a small ship by cruise standards with 500 passengers but that makes for a much better experience. The ship and quality of the onboard accommodation is excellent as are the facilities, food and beverages. Every cabin has a sea view which is welcome on an expedition cruise ship. The staff are very helpful and informative and the excursions we're well organised and very interesting. The Explorer lounge where you can learn about the locations you are travelling to and the flora and fauna of the expedition destination is an excellent concept and is a key attraction for those seeking to learn more about the environment and eco systems visited. I would highly recommend a Hurtigruten cruise. Read Less
