Norwegian cruise with Hurtigruten - Hunting the light

Sail Date: February 2010
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Bergen
Hi there,

We have just returned from a cruise on the MS Trollfjord from Bergen to Bergen. We were first time cruisers and our party consisted of 3 people one of which was in a wheelchair. The cruise was fantastic and the staff helpful. Unfortunately my parents could not get off at many ports due to the extreme weather conditions (snow). Alot of areas had not been cleared hence being unable to get the wheelchair around.

The excursions were fantastic and everything ran smoothly so we have not complaints at all. We were advised before hand that it was very expensive so prepared for the worst, not as drastic as we thought.

The cruise had several nice touches i.e passing the arctic circle was a celebration so there were drinks and a gift, passing a specific Fjord you could purchase a beautiful gift mug etc

The cruise was extemely enjoyable and the hilight certainly being the Northern lights - which we were lucky enough to see.

I took More pictures of everything and they were stunning, unfortunately, i managed to delete half of them and have no idea how so i was devastated when i tried to download them.

If anyone has any photos of the Northerncape, snow hotel, huskies, Trondheim cathedral and Allesund, i would quite happily buy copies of them.

Many thanks and happy cruising if you decide to go ahead.

Cabin review:

i thought the cabin was lovely, perfect size. The only downside is it was on Deck 4 so all the loading and unloading of the boat could be heard through the night.
