Beautiful ship, terrible communications, poor food

Review for MS Roald Amundsen to Canada & New England

The title of the trip was "History, Seafood and Nature Reserves" This was a cruise from Halifax to Boston. We heard no more than ten minutes of history daily (and some of it was wrong--we were told John Smith founded Boston....), the seafood was mostly Alaskan cod (nothing regional), and there were only three nature reserves over the week of the cruise. Communications were terrible ...

Fantastic opportunity to visit ports along the coast of Norway.

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

This cruise came highly recommended by a friend. Our itinerary was 6 nights from South to North ending in Kirkenes. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of visiting the different ports along the coast. It was very interesting to see what happened at each port, sometimes just supplies were loaded or post was delivered. At other times, passengers embarked or disembarked. We ...

We've been on five previous expedition trips including two to Antarctica and one to the Arctic. We had not traveled with Hurtigruten before and chose the MS Roald Amundsen because we liked the itinerary. Hurtigruten, a Norwegian company, gets its name from the coastal express, "Hurry Route." Hurtigruten was quick to acknowledge receipt of our payment. We heard nothing from them for weeks, when ...

Great experience with outstanding staff

We chose this cruise because it explored the fjords all the way up to the northern most points of Norway. It is not a cruise ship in the conventional sense but instead combines being a working boat and a cruise ship. Our cabin was fine with a good view on deck 6. The food was good quality and the restaurant staff were excellent. The excursion staff combined selling excursions with being ...

Following brilliant reviews pre-covid this appeared to be the cruise of a lifetime on a wonderful new ship with highly skilled expedition team members to lead. The ship is truly amazing and our cabins on deck 9 were the 'best' and our cabin stewards Jonathan and Ernest were simply wonderful. Could not fault them. The laundry service was quick and efficient. The meals in the ...

I used to be a tour leader in Scandinavia for over 20 years but i had never done a trip with Hurtigruten. I was Not disappointed . I had a fantastic time. The food was outstanding, the crew amazing and nothing (in my view) beat the beautiful Norwegian coast. Not only do you get to experience the beauty of a nation of sailors but you get to see daily life of people along the coast. The ...

This was most likely my only trip to Svalbard, and I am angry with myself for not researching this more carefully. We did the Norway coastal journey with Hurtigruten five years ago and had an amazing time, so I thought that I knew the quality we would receive. But this was very different. The greatest disappointment for me was the complete lack of information that we received about the area we ...

This is not a cruise ship, it's a ferry

Review for Polarlys to Europe - British Isles & Western

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

The ship is a poor uncomfortable noisy ferry. The cabin (we picked the one with windows and partial view- no other option available) it’s really small. There is a very small closet. The tv shows nothing. The bathroom is so small that you want to shower with open door just to have some air. They clean the cabin daily and they do a good job. The common area are invaded by backpackers who ...

A fantastic cruise along the Norwegian fjords to the land of the midnight sun..

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We chose this cruise because of Hurtigruten's reputation for providing the best and most authentic trip to the North Cape of Europe. We really liked the idea that we would be travelling on a "working boat" which was still an important link for many of the more remote communities on the Norwegian north coast. The trip was well beyond our expectations. The boat was very comfortable, with our ...

I chose this Expedition cruise as it had a great itinerary around the remote Scottish Isles. Particularly good if travelling alone as I found crew and passengers really friendly and helpful. The expedition team were great. Customer services desk staff excellent for sorting out any queries or problems. Cabin lacked space to put your clothes as no drawers and only 1 small wardrobe. Not ...
