I planned his travel with this old, but excellent Lady and her friendly and competent crew along Norway's coasts and the cities, to see the Northern Light an have fantastic meals an dinners, to meet new freinds on board. For deseased people this ship isn't a good idea: no lifts and many stairs! The whole crew incl. the captain and the officers are friendly an help to made all my wishes becomes true - and the weather was with us too! I planned my excursion by myself, but there are enough to book on board too. Maybe they could be less expensive sometimes for passengers with less money. The dining was excellent with a wide chooce meals and allways excellent and enough. There are many ports on the long coast of Norway we landed, but by all bigger cities we have a lot of time to explore the cities by ourselfes or with booked excursions. Thank you Hurtigruten!
