We chose this cruise to visit Antarctica and to travel on the latest hybrid ship. This was a very special experience. The ship, the whole crew, the expeditions and activities, the food all met and surpassed our expectations. I was travelling with my sister, both of us of pensionable age and we had a wonderful time. We learned a great deal from the lectures and enjoyed the shore excursions enormously. We were very impressed by the ship's hybrid technology, desalination of water supply and waste disposable. We believe that this should be the future of cruise ships.

Antarctica is a very beautiful and precious place and we were given every opportunity to experience this part of the world in as eco-friendly way as possible. Our outer clothes were vacuumed, special boots were provided and washed after each expedition. The expedition team were very careful to protect the animals and to abide by all the regulations which govern Antarctica. I fully recommend both M V Roald Amundsen and Hurtigruten for people wanting to experience luxurious, informative and eco-friendly cruising, without "entertainment" and dressing up, in beautiful and special parts of the world.

Cabin Review

A beautifully appointed cabin with 2 comfortable beds (or made as double), 2 adjustable armchairs with footstool, a desk and chair. The shower room is very well designed with excellent space for 2 passengers' personal equipment and underfloor heating. There is excellent storage for clothing. Tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryer and bathrobes. The balcony has a cabin width sliding glass door, 2 chairs and a coffee table.
