This sailing has on our bucket list for a number of years and we booked it before Covid. Despite the wait it certainly did not disappoint! The friendliness of the crew, the spacious cabin, the saunas and jacuzzis and other facilities, the extensive menu and delicious food, the excellent excursions, informative lectures and the limit on passenger numbers were absolutely perfect.
The ship was spotlessly clean taking into account it was technically a working boat stopping at 34 ports - not a cruise ship. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the sailing and could not fault anything! The sheer delight of sailing 5h3 Norwegian coast and traveling up fjords is a memorable experience. The thrill of going husky sledging in Kirkenes and the excitement of witnessing the spectacular Northern Lights was a privilege and one we’ll never forget. The friendliness and professionalism of the crew made the us feel very special and we’d certainly wholeheartedly recommend Hurtigruten to everyone.
