This cruise was initially offered to us by another company but we ultimately decided we would be getting a better experience and better value for money.
Embarkation and disembarkation went well.
The ship was ample for our requirements although the cabin was adequate the shower area was small.
But all in all the staff and crew helped make our experience excellent.
Our Trip in the ...
This cruise and everything about our time in Norway was above and beyond all our expectations
We had early unseasonal cold weather with snow which was wonderful for us as we come from a hot & sunny climate & never see snow and it turned everything into a fairyland.
We chose Hurtigruten as we wanted to see as much of Norwegian life as possible and being on a "Ferry' stopping a little ports ...
We arrived 2 days before the departure at Bergen to visit ourself the city from Paris (2 days are too long for visiting Bergen).
The cruise was very confortable : Polar interior cabin was small but very cosy. Every meal was so good. We ate many local product : fishes, berrys, brown cheese, ... And sometimes we ate french pasteries on breakfast.
All cruise's team was at our service for ...
We had always wanted to do the Norwegian coast and my parents took the journey probably 40 years ago and loved it. Our Swedish friends, who we travel with, suggested we take this trip and we jumped at the chance. We understood this is not a cruise but a trip on a supply ship. We had taken the same type of trip before on the St. Lawrence so we fully understood the difference between cruise and ...
I wanted to explore the coast and fjords of Norway. This cruise accomplishes this to the highest degree. This is both a working ship and smaller ship cruise with 500 passengers on average. The ship's course both north and south avoids open ocean travel and follows the fjords and sounds through an intricate complicated shoreline; a coast that was not accurately mapped until the 20th Century.
We had always wanted to travel on the Hurtigruten, and so we booked with the Richard With because it had recently undergone a re-fit.
Getting to the ship was so simple. We left from Cardiff airport to Bergen where the coaches we waiting to take us to the ship. Unfortunately there were only two people on reception when we arrived at check-in and so we had a long time standing in queue before ...
We have recently returned from the Hurtigruten Norwegian Classic round trip, on board MS Richard With, 21st February – 4th March, including flights from UK (Manchester).
To summarise – this was a fantastic trip, the experience of a lifetime.
However it was not perfect – but the few negatives were massively outweighed by the positives.
The charter flights (from Manchester) and the transfer ...
We went on recommendation from a friend.
The cruise is designed for the older person and not really suited for families, certainly not for teenagers.
The ship is smaller than a traditional cruise ship but this leads to a more personal and friendly atmosphere aboard the ship.
There is no traditional entertainment, however the lectures and gatherings are brilliant, entertaining and ...
We aren't cruise holidaymakers and this wasn't a traditional cruise as the ship is more like a ferry than a cruise ship, which was fine for us. We wanted to have a voyage along the Norwegian coast and get the best chance to see the Northern Lights. The ship travels via 34 different small ports and acts as a means of transport for locals and freight as well as holidaymakers which added to our ...
