We haven't done a cruise before but have always wanted to do a "Small Ship" cruise as the thought of a 1,000+ ship fills us with horror! My father did this cruise 3 years ago & he is so fussy , so when he recommended it we knew it was a safe choice. The whole experience from booking to finish was professional & smooth. We stayed in Bergen for a couple of days before embarking, this was also organised for us by Hurtigruten, I would say to anyone considering this cruise to do the same. It added value to the whole holiday. Our cabin was an "Arctic Superior" & was exactly the right size, with a large comfortable bed, porthole ( a must) & ingenious storage. It was cleaned daily by a lovely lady called Gina. The restaurant with it's friendly staff & excellent choice of food daily was a delight to visit. Be warned... you may put on weight ! The staff were a constant delight & we were very sad to leave them. Christine, Gustav, Mathais, Pernilla & Tom were extra special going the added mile to make sure our dining was great. We went Dog Sledding & did a night trip on a Snowmobile over the mountains, both were expensive, but a once in a lifetime experience. Probably the only downside was the price of alcohol, but Norway is dear so we did expect this. However... our livers thanked us !

Thoroughly recommend this Cruise & Hurtigruten
