Additional details

Sail Date: Dec 2019

Already the third winter trip with one of the old, small, listed ship of the Hurtigrute. The mood on the Norwegian coast is particularly romantic at this time: every day is like Christmas day.

However, violent storms and hurricanes must be expected in winter. The MS Lofoten has no stabilizers, so the ship can have violent movement. But it is very safe!

Living together on board is very familiar. The staff was always friendly and courteous even in heavy weather.

Cabin Review

Spacious cabin for this ship. Setup simple but sufficient. Very clean.
