Travel to departure city was smooth, well organized and leave time to visit Oslo on the way. After arrival a day in Bergen was possible and joyful. Travel back was also smooth (as far as Hurtigruten is concerned) They are not repsonsible for delayed and overcrowded german trains.
The ship is modern and comfortable, cabins are clean and well arranged.
Meals are very good (copious buffets for all meals with a great choice) with excellent service, drinks somewhat expensive as everywhere in Norway.
Long bus trip and disappointing breakfast (compared to the offerings on board)
Stay at North cape was a bit short, could have been longer, since we arrived back to the ship one hour before departure.
