• Background Information
We are a retired couple who have travelled a great deal; however, we’d never done a cruise being put off by the thought of thousands of people on the same vessel. A fellow traveller recommended Hurtigruten after doing one on MS Lofoten. We liked the idea of a smaller ship without the nonsense of casinos, bars, and stage shows.
• Travel To Port of Embarkation
Better than expected. HVAC and plumbing worked perfectly. Beds were comfortable and not too soft. Lots of storage space and hangers. This space was better than many hotels. Only one tiny waste receptacle which filled up very quickly. Housekeeping was thorough and efficient, though the timing was variable and unpredictable.
