The whole experience blew my mind!

I will start off by Hurtigruten make it very clear in their advertising the coastal voyage is not a cruise, so if you go with that expectation you have not done your homework properly and might be disappointed. If you want to have an authentic adventure, voyage to the Artic and back, learn and experience Norwegian culture and coastal life, see the most wonderful scenery, relax and escape the ...

Although we were sailing during the pandemic and there was more crew than guests, this meant the service and care to attention to every detail was second to none. Northern Lights were witnessed and husky dog trails were just two of the amazing experiences on this delightful ship with amazing scenery, activities and exceptional staff. Attention to detail was perfect from the restaurant staff ...

Simply Stunning Antarctica Experience

I chose Hurtigruten because I wanted an educational experience of Antarctica that was as authentic as possible. Hurtigruten features history and science lectures and activities, instead of casinos, crowds, and glitzy shows. Hurtigruten’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility was also an important contributing factor to choosing to travel with them. My cabin, even though among the ...

Antarctica was my last continent and it truly did not disappoint. I never thought I would be able to look at a group of penguins and pick them out or go boating in an ice field. The team really worked to provide the best options given the weather and changing conditions. The restaurants were great especially the Freidhiem which offered a changing menu and offered to customize without question. ...

Overpriced Northern Lights Experience

Review for Nordkapp to Europe - British Isles & Western

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We wanted to see the Northern Lights (which we did, on one night) and visit places of interest and fjords of Norway. We knew we would be on a working post-boat, not really a cruise ship and that it would be quite dark and possibly poor weather, at times. However, bearing in mind the 'cruise ship' cost we thought not enough thought had been given to passengers not wanting to pay the extortionate ...

This was an expedition cruise to Antarctica and the Falkland Islands. The trip of a lifetime! The expedition crew and landings were phenomenal, as were the lectures on board the ship. I learned and saw so much. The food was fantastic as well. The ship only has 265 passenger cabins, and we were at less than half capacity due to COVID, so the experience was even better than expected. The pool deck ...

I wanted to see the Northern Lights and seeing them was enhanced by the staff who provided a first- rate holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was delicious and served by enthusiastic staff many of them young people. The excursions were interesting and well organised with guides who provided facts about history and geography of the area Mealtimes were well organised and ...

I live in Sweden, and I was looking for a nothern lights tours. My travel agent was highly recommending Hurtigruten's voyages, and finally, after a couple of cancelations due to pandemic, I went on a sail with MS Kong Harald, from Bergen to Kirkenes and back to Bergen. I booked flights, transfers, full board, coffee/tea, wifi and 6 excursions. And everything went great! The only negative ...

Chosen for the Northern Lights, the cruise became more about the scenery and overall experience on MS Maud. The boat was less than half full due to covid restrictions which no doubt helped as we didn't have to worry about queuing for excursions and received amazing service and support from all the crew. The excursions were well described and organised and mostly we were able to join everything we ...

Hurtigruten was recommended to us by our Travel Agent on the strength of feedback from previous cutomers. We researched the company ourselves and booked two years ago, for 11/20 in order to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday that year and our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We unfortunately had to reschedule to this year due to the pandemic Nevertheless and although belated the trip turned out to be ...
