Re Norway - Hurtigruten Cruise - Hunting the Light - 12 days Just back from a fabulous holiday. The whole package was superb. Everything was very well run. The ship, Polarlys, was superb - so beautifully equipped. The staff very helpful, friendly and professional. Food - great; lovely to have the 'Coastal Kitchen' menu which centred on local recipes and produce - fantastic fish dishes. Lunch buffets were wonderful, masses of choice, hot & cold, something to suit everyone. Excursions well organised and interesting, only disappointment was that due to lack of snow we couldn't do the dog sledding. North Cape was amazing and Tromso Cathedral concert a wonderful peaceful experience, and there's something special to look forward to as you cross the Arctic Circle! Certainly a good company to travel with and provided some stunning locations and scenery. Highlight is that we saw the Northern Lights on two occasions and the second time it was especially clear - dancing curtains of pale green right across the sky. Yes we can certainly recommend this trip. If you like something a bit different, enjoy spectacular scenery and like some comfort and relaxation and have a hearty appetite then this is for you! Recommend a good quality down jacket (so glad we bought ours) as it's rather chilly on deck and that's the best way to appreciate the views as you gently sail through the fjords and islands of the Norwegian Coast. Also do the whole return trip so that the parts you pass in the dark on the journey North you will see in daylight travelling south. An upgrade in cabin was a good move to provide that extra space and on a higher deck, quiet and with good views. And KLM were a great airline, talking to others we were the only ones that got any refreshments on board! Read Less
