A 'must do'

Worst cruise for passengers comfort ever

We have done a lot of cruises. We were aware that the Nordkapp is a working vessel and that it was going to be a lot less comfortable than a lot of other ships that is why we booked a attic superior cabin. When we ...

Not for singles or people under 70

I thought I would see fjords and magnificent landscapes on board a ship with interesting things to do. What I got was endless rocks and low cliffs and certainly no fjords or anything interesting on the ship except ...

Amazing Way to See Norway and Northern Lights for Photographers

We chose MS Nordkapp because of the many popular reviews and the ship size. We had an outer Polar berth and were worried that we wouldn't get a good view out, but the porthole was unobstructed and allowed us to see ...

Arrange your own excursions at 1/2 to 1/3 the price and ask for low salt meals

The route is very scenic, so well worth the trip. However, much of the interest of the trip is in the places you stop and what you see. The company's "excursions" are all extras and very expensive ones at that, ...
