Sail Date: Sep 2022

This coastal cruise was part of a bigger tour with Overseas Adventure Travel. We had no choice of the cabin assignments, except for window or no, twin or double bed. We were on the third deck in cabin 390. It had 2 bunk beds, and another that could be switched to a couch. Bathroom was very small. We had full board, premium internet, wine or beer with meals, and unlimited coffee and tea with our package, and every meal was excellent. The dining room staff and the manager were very friendly. We did not do any of the Hurtigruten excursions, but did attend a couple of their talks. The two we really liked were the MS Fram and the whale talks. Loved being able to walk around deck 5 to get some exercise. The scenery and ports were beautiful. The ceremony crossing the Artic Circle was fun. Going Bergen to Kirkenes you get ice down your back and a shot of liquor. We bought the troll tea offered at the bar on the 7th deck one evening...very tasty and cute commemorative metal mugs.

Cabin Review

Needs an update, especially the bathroom.
