This cruise was recommended by German friends we met in China! The embarkation went as planned. We were greeted by very cheerful staff and conducted to our cabin. A self tour around the ship made us feel very comfortable. The initial safety drill and following daily information briefings kept us very well informed of the days' activities. We enjoyed watching the activity on the dock whenever the ship arrived in port. The days when an excursion was available were very well organised. The excursions available catered for a range of abilities and interests. The local guides on those we took were always helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. At first we thought our later evening dining time would be difficult but we soon became accustomed to the time and it was pleasantly enjoyable. Being from Australia where snow is not common, we were overjoyed to have one snowing day - in Alesund. We had come prepared for cold so that was no problem, especially as the ship was toasty warm. Our highlights were to see the North Cape in brilliant sunshine, blue sky and sparkling snow and then to stand out on deck at night, marvelling at the spectacle of the Northern Lights.

Fabulous Norway with Hurtigruten.
