Super short cruise on one of Hurtigruten's classic ships

I only had time for the 'half cruise' but enjoyed every minute. Nordlys is showing her age a little with some frayed carpets and furnishings in public areas but is shiny, clean and comfortable. She will be refitted ...

An exciting insight to coastal Norway
