Hurtigruten does not care about its’ customers, this much is clear. It cares only about revenues. It is an arrogant organisation with contempt for the law and those it takes money from.
Let’s be quite direct. This is hosteling at 5* prices and any commitments made by the company are freely discardable at their discretion.
So why have I come to this conclusion following a trip on “The most beautiful journey in the world”?
