Northern Lights

Nordkapp Cruise Review by Curlytop28

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: Europe

We mainly went to see the Northern Lights. We saw them on a number of occasions, which was great, but they were slightly underwhelming. They were mainly white light / only showing green on very slow exposure photographs.

The ship was comfortable, the crew and food were excellent. Drinks were expensive. £15 for a glass of wine, £10 for less than a pint of beer.

The excursion in Tromsø was amazing, packed a lot in and was great value for money, but on a lovely lakeside walk in Hammerfest we were charged 379 kronor / £33 each for a tiny cardboard cup of tea and a small piece of dried reindeer meat.

The food was excellent but we would have appreciated a choice on the evenings when it was not a buffet dinner.

The dining staff were very friendly and helpful, as were the expedition staff. I thoroughly enjoyed all the ‘Get to know Norway’ talks.
