Sail Date: Dec 2017

What an amazing journey! So different from a 'big ship' experience - you get really up-close-and-personal to the Norwegian coast with Hurtigruten, visiting so many ports of call, and expertly navigating the myriad of islands and fjords of the coast - amazingly close, almost reaching out to touch some of the cliffs or to shake the hands of locals.

Could not fault the food, service and staff on board - so refreshing to see Norwegian staff, as the talk about their home country with such pride.

Enjoyed learning about the Northern Lights - and Hurtigruten have their Northern Lights Promise of a free voyage if the Lights do not appear (some small print does apply) - but we were treated to an spine-tingling event on several nights. Asking the Expedition team how they rated the Lights we saw, they said "about a 6 or 7 out of 10" - so I can't wait to go back and see what a 10/10 experience would be!!!

Cabin Review

Cabin Arctic Superior

Pretty good actually, although we spent little time in the cabin - you are properly missing the point of Hurtigruten if you spend time in your cabin
