This cruise was absolutely fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The expeditions were super well organised and extremely interesting. The expedition crew were so knowledgeable, informative, funny and inspiring! Best science lessons I have ever experienced! Field trips are so exciting - for any age! The underwater drone was fascinating especially when looking at shipwrecks and the sea ...

Having travelling with Hurtigruten previously and had an excellent experience, we chose them for the Northern Lights trip. The trip was excellent with different excursions and a a superb expedition team making the whole trip informative, inspiring and interesting. During the visit we managed to see the Northern Lights as well as stunning scenery, whales and other wildlife and go on ...

Not been on Fred Olsen for a while and chose this 14 day cruise to see the Northern Lights or should I say hope to see the Northern Lights! Embarkation was at the Liverpool Cruise Terminal, and it was a doddle, far better than Southampton. There had been some cases of gastro-enteritis on the previous cruise, so we were late boarding as the ship had a top to bottom clean before we could board. ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We’d never gone Far North before. It was a ‘bucket list’ cruise. The crew, waiters and cabin staff were faultless. The ship was an ‘Olsen ship’ and we’d sailed on Balmoral several years ago so it was familiar. The shows were very good and you’d not have believed how little time they had for rehearsals. The talks were interesting but told you nothing about each destination. For that you had to ...

This is a must do. The combination of landscape, safety, very good and healthy nutrition, calmness and a very interesting expedition and board programs is incredible.The excursions were great. Onboard passing a magnificent landscape and being always the number one customer is incredibly good. You see the fabulous coast line of Norway and pass the polar circle and Nordkapp. The menus and buffets on ...

Review for Viking Mars to Arctic

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Can't really complain about anything. Food, service and room were all excellent. Weather sucked, but that's Iceland. Would have liked to know if there were any instances of Covid on board, but Captain and crew were silent. Tours were generally very good. Reykjavik tour was so so. Buffet was excellent and up to the standards that we've become used to on Viking. Embarking and disembarking ...

Review for Ocean Endeavour (Adventure Canada) to Arctic

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I have always wanted to explore more of Canada, especially the arctic regions. And Labrador has always fascinated me. This exploration of Greenland, Labrador (especially the Torngat Mountains) and Newfoundland was fantastic. Adventure Canada brings together a wonderful assortment of folks to add color to the trip, from storytellers to archeologists to naturalists. The zodiac rides brought us from ...

Review for Havila Capella to Arctic

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We cruised aboard the “new” cruise ship traveling the Norway coast up to the Arctic Circle. This is the Capella, owned by Havila, a Norwegian company. This cruise took place the last week of Sept. – ending 12 days later. I was unable to find any reviews on Cruise Critic prior to the trip, other than a general overview of the ship’s features. Hopefully this will whet the appetite of those ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...
