Nordkapp Cruise Review by angela.grossgebauer

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2017
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

We choose this cruise due to its itinerary and it being a working ship. The experience is therefore different, there are several stops every day and it's an interesting way to get to know more about the local culture. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, visiting so many different cities and seeing the Northern Lights on the last day.

The crew was excellent, very professional and friendly.

The food was outstanding, even very thoughtful for the evening meals.

This was our first cruise and for that we have enjoyed it very much.

Our cruise was one way from Bergen to Kirkenes. This included New Year's Eve on the boat, which again was thought well through to provide entertainment and the right atmosphere on boat.

There are plenty of excursions to choose from, which we recommend that you do some of these, they are well planned and give a good insight. The Point of Interest Activities on the outside Deck are definitely worthwhile.

The only word of warning is to choose your cabin wisely. We just booked a basic Polar Outside and were on Deck 3. Although it says the MS Nordkapp has been refurbished in 2016, so it's overall in excellent and modern conditions, the same doesn't apply for Deck 3. Our cabin was still old school.

Cabin Review

Cabin Polar Outside 302

The cabin was basic, with 2 single beds on either side, a small desk with mirror, a simple wardrobe and a simple shower cell/bathroom. So overall as expected and nothing wrong with that. Just disappointed to find out that the ship has had a complete refurbishment in 2016 including the cabins, but someone the same doesn't apply for Deck 3. So out cabin still had old furniture, curtains, carpets etc .. where as everything from Deck 4 up was very modern and in simple Norwegian chic.
