We were looking for a celebratory cruise experience for a first time cruising older couple and the Hurtigruten north Norway expedition cruise delivered big time. We were delighted to be part of a working ferry service in an incredibly ...
Did the round cruise Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen. Weather disappointing as we left and arrived back in Bergen. Further up coast the scenery was magnificent with the snow. Ship very comfortable with good clean cabins. Plenty of room to empty ...
We chose this cruise as part of a eight-day tour of Norway. We enjoyed every minute of the cruise. The ship was well maintained and had been recently updated. Our cabin on Deck 5 was larger than expected, and the staff was very helpful. ...
We loved every minute of the Hurtigruten Northern Lights cruise and would have done the full 11 day return trip had we known how fabulous it would be.
With 2 kids aged 13 and 15 we overnighted at the Hotel Oleana in Bergen to have the ...
We took a 6 days cruise, North from Kirkenes to Bergen. We love it. Saw the "northern lights" and the fjords of Norway. We took the mini-suite and it is the only way to go. The lower cabins are tiny. For the size, it was more ...
We chose the Hurtigruten cruise line as the best way to see the Norwegian fjords. We arrived Bergen where we had 1 1/2 days prior to boarding the Nordkapp. Bergen is a delightful city. The embarkation was the quickest and most simple we ...
We have cruised on small luxury liners and large. This cruise was so much more. Every minute of the cruise offered spectacular scenery along the west coast of Norway between the barrier islands and the mainland. The ship stops in the towns ...
Having done this voyage over 40 years ago the changes were enormous. The infrastructure (roads, bridges and tunnels) have changed the passenger profile, and the ships are modern and carry far more "tourists".
This trip should ...
My husband and I, 2 English passengers, had all of our luggage stolen from a Hurtigruten ship after embarking at Bergen for the 12 day round trip. We feel we must highlight the incident and dangers to other current and future international ...
My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday chasing the Northern Lights with Hurtigruten it was superb.The weather was super 10 days of sunshine which helped to highlight the magnificent scenery we encountered throughout the ...
It's not comfortable.people need to be under no illusion. The ship is a Ferry! But I think the descriptions in brochure are very fair. We had the best outside cabin and the bunks are very narrow. The cabin is not somewhere we wanted to ...
To sum up, I've put the summary first you can also read the more in depth view after, if the mood takes you.
If you want reasonable size cabin with half decent facilities don't choose this cruise, unless you can afford the much larger ...
Cruise Review Hurtigruten Nordkapp
We sailed on the Nordkapp from May 5 -- May 10 from Kirkenes to Bergen. We were told there were 300 people on board with the ship listed as capable of holding 622. The ship is well appointed and run ...
We recently returned from a cruise on the Nordkapp, going both north and then south on the ship, beginning and ending in Bergen, Norway. It was a wonderful trip with lots of beautiful scenery. My thoughts on the cruise: next time I will ...
Good points- the ship is well maintained and the public areas are nicely done. The Observation lounge was particularly nice. The 3 course evening meals were good, though you don't get a choice.
Breakfast buffet choice was ok, but not ...
We booked our Hurtigruten cruise with our local travel agent and about 2 weeks before departure, our travel documents arrived. We booked the 12 day round trip from Bergen - Kirkenes - Bergen.
Our trip started in Oslo. We spent a day of ...
It was our HONEY-MOON, we spent a lot of money and were expecting luxury.
We were VERY dissapointed.
Firstly, we were NOT given anything complimentary for the occasion of our honeymoon, no upgrade, no wine, no toiletries, not ...

Overview... This cruise was an exceptional experience, passengers constantly had a glazed look on their faces as they viewed the spectacular scenery & wildlife. Antarctica will only ever be seen by a limited number of people & it ...
