Nordlys Cruise Review by peterstaff

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: Norwegian Fjords

The travel timings were precise and everything went smoothly.

However all the meals in the restaurant were lukewarm and often ran out without being replenished. The restaurant service was slow and the prices for the wine, beer etc were overpriced. The cheapest bottle of house wine was NOK 500. We priced in local supermarkets at NOK 124. Considering that Hurtigruten would purchase this at a wholesale not retail price - is an extortionate mark up.

We found the excursions very expensive and the content rather staid and due to the ship's fast turnaround time extremely rushed. Most people we spoke to either walked or took a taxi towards the end of the trip as soon as they realised the poor value for money.

However there is no getting away from the fact that the Norwegian scenery is spectacular and therefore despite our negative comments we are glad that we went.
