Sail Date: Sep 2014

Just back from a cruise up the coast of Norway from Bergen to Kirkenes on the Hurtigruten Trollfjord. Had a very fine time: comfortable cabin, decent food (and the kitchen very obliging about accommodating vegetarians and semi-vegetarians), lots to do, fabulous staff, gorgeous country, beautiful scenery.

May I suggest, though, a couple of ways that this experience could be made perfect (rather than just very good):

1.The gym: there's a small but decently equipped gym on board (fine for my limited requirements, anyway) which is, however, not available for passengers' use all the time. Why not? Because of the size of the gym and the limited range of equipment there were several occasions when I wanted to use the gym within the hours designated for passengers but couldn't because it was full - with a queue of folk waiting. Can't see why it isn't available for use all the time so that early birds (5 a.m. onwards) like me, or others who like to exercise late at night, couldn't use it whenever they wanted to.

Cabin Review

Cabin outside cabin

No complaints about the cabin at all: small but compact and well-designed and very comfortable - and quiet. The bathroom, too, was a model of design and organisation, and being able to adjust the ambient temperature ourselves a real bonus. Loved the external view: it was magical to be able to lie in the bunk and watch the coastline float by.
