Nordlys Cruise Review by Jay-J123
- Sail Date: January 2018
- Destination: Arctic
The dining was very informal, buffet breakfast and lunch offering a variety of foods for every taste and dinner was a set 3 course menu, well thought out using their local produce
The Expedition Team was a definite bonus - very interesting talks and lectures and up to date information delivered via the ships tannoy.
You must remember it is a vital ferry service to the coastal communities and has a schedule to keep but the crew and staff worked very hard to offer a great service to its ‘cruising’ passengers
You visit 34 ports both day and night and some with just a 15 minute turnaround but the times you can go adhere there a a number of trips and excursions on offer and we thoroughly enjoyed the ones we did. The fishing villages trip at Kikenes, snowmobiling and the Vesteralen excursion were 3 of our favourites.
Actually seeing the Northern Lights is the icing on the cake - it is not guaranteed BUT there is an extremely good chance they will show during this cruise at some time - you must be patient!! Overall, an excellent time aboard and ashore

A small group from the ship visited 2 small fishing villages by bus. An excellent tour guide kept us informed and meeting the locals was a really interesting.
