Review for MS Roald Amundsen to Antarctica

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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, ...

Road Scholar. The ship and crew were always very accommodating. The food was probably my biggest concern. I’m not a picky eater but found the dinners not very enjoyable. I tried everything to be a good sport. Everything looked good but some entres were not very good. What I found odd was that we ran out of Chilean wine on the first day even though we departed from a Chilean port. There was ...

I took the One Ocean trip to the Weddell Sea and the Falkland Islands from 23 Jan to 3 Feb of 2018. If I had to summarize the trip in a word, I would say that it was good. I would certainly repeat my decision to go with One Ocean on the trip; there were many things that were very good, a few that were not so good, and one that was simply terrible. First, the good. Antarctica itself is ...

I have only positives to report on this wonderful cruise. The ship, itinerary, crew, expedition team, food, and other passengers all exceeded my expectations. If I could turn around and do it again immediately, I would. Hurtigruten arranged my flights. I arrived in Santiago for an included hotel night. My paid airport transfer and hotel check-in were easy. The hotel (Santiago Sheraton) was ...

Always an ambition to visit Cape Horn, Antarctica and the Falkland Islands. Mission accomplished helped by extraordinary weather on Antarctica. The imagery, wildlife and "the silence" was indescribable. The Midnatsol service was outstanding and the specialist team knew their stuff and shared their knowledge and experience brilliantly. Difficult decisions had to be made in the Falklands due to ...
