The whole experience from beginning to end was superb. We had been with Hurtigruten up the coast of Norway and so enjoyed it we wanted to do a longer cruise.
Antarctica was our choice.
We booked a suite and this did not disappoint. The advantages of the suite were many - breakfast in the a la carte restaurant, an invitation to eat in the a la carte restaurant in the evening, free mini bar until refilled, free laundry.
An excursion ashore and a Cruise each day in a zodiac were exhilarating. The expedition staff were excellent with their knowledge and expertise and the organisation from collecting our boots to finding the right coach to leave was impeccable.
The food was superb and the staff at all levels fantastic. We were extremely lucky with the weather and experiencing Antarctica in the sun is just glorious. We would hope highly recommend Hurtigruten.
Lovely little town. Good for souvenirs and an overnight stay.
