Sail Date: Nov 2018

Went on an excursion to Boda and Saltstruam. It was in a bus, it was dark, we saw nothing but lights in houses and shops and factories. The rapids at Saltstuam did not happen Rushed back to bus back to ship. Worthless. Think twice before embarking on these very expensive excursions from a Hurtigruten ship. While I’m at it everything you buy on this cruise is so expensive you need to take out a mortgage to buy anything. Not even a biscuit is free. The buffet is terrible. The Germans push you out of the way to grab the food. They do not use the utensils provided. They are quite rude and loud. The buffet is not the most hygienic way to serve food because not everyone has the decency to respect hygiene and cleanliness near food.. Breakfast hot food is awful. If you are vegan forget 3ver having a hot breakfast. Eggs are served with bacon laying on top of them. I saw people picking up more bits of bacon that had fallen off the eggs. Very poor.
