Perfect itinerary

|

We chose this cruise based on the itinerary. We have cruised with Regent, Silver Sea, and Oceana previously so we were a bit skeptical of Viking. The cruise exceeded our expectations. There are some extra touches ...

Viking British Isle Explorer - for the Learning Traveler

After 26 cruises this was our first on Viking; surely, not our last. I'll get over our one gripe first and move on to the positives. On the evening sail from Bergen, we visited the ship's apparel shop in search ...

Viking Ocean British Isles Explorer

Cruising the Intricate Coast and Fjords of Norway

I wanted to explore the coast and fjords of Norway. This cruise accomplishes this to the highest degree. This is both a working ship and smaller ship cruise with 500 passengers on average. The ship's course both ...

Another fine Viking Vacation experience

We had taken a "Baltic cruise" in 2008 (on Princess cruise line) but wanted an opportunity to enjoy Norway prior to repeating a visit to the northern capitals. We are not disappointed at all, partly due to the ...

Blessed with warm sunny days, fabulous views of the mountains

Service in restaurant: Could be poor. Twice I sat down by a window. The table was empty. I cleared the crumbs as there was no one around. Great views of the scenery and that is why I came on the cruise. I ...

Neither here nor there

Hurtigruten could be an interestingly different offer to typical cruise ships as they also provide ferry services along the Norwegian coast and you get to see some areas typical cruise ships would not visit. The ...

Old, dingy cruise ship with smallest cabins, horrible food and service

We were booked on this ship by our Fjord Tours’ “Norway in the Nutshell “ package. So we didn’t really have a choice on the ship or more importantly, the cabin types and size. We were a family of 4 and ...

Awful value for money

We were travelling from Alesund to Bergen. It cost 337 Gbp for my girlfriend and I, so very expensive and our hopes were high. There was very little information before the trip, then no one to meet us at the ...

Superbly beautiful vessel, great itinerary, and even greater staff and crew.

My wife and I have fairly limited experience with cruise vacations (3 or 4 previous cruises). Our last big vacation was a cycling vacation in France two years ago. We have tended to look for moderately active ...

Ferry trip disguised as a cruise

As a ferry Hurtigruten does an excellent job making on scheduled stops to ports up and down the Norway coast. However, as a cruise ship it disappoints. I booked an 11-day CRUISE on Hurtigruten Nordlys in April. ...
