Review for MS Roald Amundsen to Antarctica

I had heard good reviews of Hurtigruten from friends. I felt safe in their hands as they have so much experience of cold, icy countries. When the offer of a reduction on MS Roald Amundsen for it’s first year I took the opportunity and have no regrets. A fantastic ship, a fantastic cruise, lively and knowledgeable expedition crew. I paid extra to camp out. An experience I will never forget. ...

Great cruise for a bargain price on sale.

I have researching Antarctica expedition cruises for a while. Let me start off by saying I got a bargain price for this cruise...it must have gone on sale for a week when I nabbed it. I might have been a little disappointed had I paid close to full price. Embarkation was quite disorganized. Busloads of people were brought to the ship at once and IF you knew your cabin number, you could ...

The Roald Amundsen hybrid ship is the newest in the Hurtigruten group and we were so lucky to have had the opportunity to travel to Antartica onboard. The rooms, restaurants, quality of the food, housekeeping, bars are all outstanding. It is however, the wonderful friendliness and professionalism of all staff that makes this trip so special. There are lectures in the science rooms, land and sea ...

Lifetime ambition to visit Antarctica . The shore excursions were exceptionally well organised. Pre Planning and getting ashore to many Islands were run with military precision. Walking on ice , ice cruising round ice bergs and other activities were remarkably good. The suite decor was well presented and the Wellington boots were easy to dry as hot air pipes located in cloak cupboards ...

We were not sure what to think about the Roald Amundsen after reading the reviews posted that we read before our cruise. We were concerned about the expeditions, our cabin and the dining experience/food. We are happy to report that we have very little that we could mention as being even slightly negative about our experience on this 17 day adventure. From the time we arrived in Santiago to spend ...

My wife and I typically don't leave reviews on review sites (particularly negative reviews) but we felt obligated to share with anyone considering Australis Cruises so you can best plan your trip. WARNING! :) If you are under 35 this is not the cruise for you and the way to spend your time in Patagonia/Tierra del Fuego! Other resorts (like Remota or Explora) would be a MUCH better option. ...

Journey to the end/beginning of the world. Beautiful, luxurious ship with well-fitted cabins, including comfortable beds. We expected something more rustic, but this was indeed a luxury cruise vessel. Extremely attractive, inviting bar and lounge areas. Coolers with filtered water on every deck, which could be used to fill stylish water flasks, given to each passenger (great souvenir). Very ...

--you must be cool and comfortable at all times (you will get hot and sweaty on excursions, and you must stay hydrated in the tropical heat); --you don't want to get your feet wet (you need to wade to shore for the hikes); --you don't want to see amazing plant, animal, bird, and insect life up close and personal with narration by skilled and informed naturalists; --you don't want to be ...

I was recently on a Patagonian cruise on the Stella Australis. It was exceptional in all respects. The ship was very nice, very clean and comfortable. There is no TV or WiFi, which was great and contributed to relaxation. This was an all vegan cruise and the chef did a wonderful job and the food was very good. The dining room staff was the best I have ever encountered! The cabin stewards were also ...

Have always wanted to experience Antarctica, but hesitated due to the cost. However, when we found Hurtigruten, we decided to go for it. We were able to book an expedition suite cabin for about the same price as a standard cabin on other ships, and found it to be excellent value. The service on the ship was exceptional, especially the expedition crew. It was a very friendly atmosphere on the ship, ...
