We chose the cruise because of the promised itinerary.

We were on the same cruise as Grizzly56 who has submitted a review already so I will ask you read his review and I will avoid duplication here.

We booked through ROL Cruise Ltd on 24th July 2018 and had decided to book a suite and a suite number was duly allocated. This same suite number remained the same all through our correspondence with the agent and appeared on our final cruise tickets. We were dismayed, when we arrived on board the ship to check in, to find that we had not been allocated the suite number we had been expecting for 11 months and instead were given a suite one deck below where we should have been and almost at the stern of the ship rather than midships.

Cabin Review

Cabin was excellent and the cabin steward was very efficient and helpful despite his very very heavy workload. In cabin audio/visual equipment operated erratically during the cruise. We found the absence of a bridge cam a bit of a nuisance. No in cabin instructions for the AV equipment. Hurtigruten's idea of "latest film releases" is at odds with our definition.
