The Roald Amundsen is a beautiful ship, and I greatly enjoyed my cruise from Tromso to Longbyearen. That said, there were a few glitches that Hurtigruten needs to focus on. When I checked in, they had no record ...

Nothing short of amazing.......

We managed to book our cruise/expedition at a very good price due to a late booking, our previous cruise with Scenic Eclipse was cancelled at very short notice. Which was disappointing at the time, but Silverseas ...

Le Boreal - Never again - Bad Service, Staff Disorganised, Disappointing Food

A disastrous holiday from start to finish. Charter flight from Orly Aiport was exhausting. One would expect a staff representing Ponant to be at a designated Meeting Place but we were told the flight would be ...

If you want to pay Top $ for Top Rudeness Ponant is for you

We have friends who work in the Cruise travel industry. Ponant was portrayed as a luxury cruise small ship company with an expedition theme. We should have had some idea when we first booked that the cruise would ...

We knew that this two day trip from Tromso to Kirkenes was all about the location and the chance of seeing the Northern Lights, so we were thrilled when we had great viewing the first night on the ship. The captain ...

They lied!

In my opinion and based on my cruise experience, you cannot rely on anything Hurtigruten (or its sales associates) tell you. I purchased the "Coffee Deal" when I booked my trip. The coffee deal is/was supposed to ...
