Excellent destination experience

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 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 ...

A trip to Antarctica If you are looking for a 4000-passenger pleasure boat cruise that has floor shows every night, a casino, midnight buffet, and bus trips off the pier at ports of call then DO NOT TAKE THIS CRUISE. This cruise is an exploration and adventure like no other… to a part of the world seldom visited. Our trip to the southernmost Antarctic locations was aboard the Midnatsol, a ...

Very Comfortable Cruise to Antarctica

We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Antarctica and do some landings. All guests gathered in Santiago, Chile at a nice Sheraton so we could take two chartered flights to the departure city Punta Arenas the next morning "early", we had 380 passengers. We did get a tour of Punta Arenas when we landed Museum, town square, etc, just killing time before registering. The embarkation was a ...

A wonderful experience more than meeting expectations. Land excursions well organised and full of interest. The Chilean Fjords were spectacular and the landing and excursions at Puerto Williams an added bonus. We were unable to land on Cape Horn due to weather conditions but instead did a complete circumnavigation of the island affording fine views and truly 'rounding the Horn'. Antarctica ...

This was an adventure and an expedition. Not a cruise.

We chose this voyage because we had always wanted to visit the Chilean fiords and Antarctica. Going by ship is realistically the only way to do this. I have only been on one cruise before (the Canberra in 1997) and was put off cruising when I discovered that it seemed to be more about the journey than the destination. But Antactica is all about the destination as well as being made comfortable and ...

Disappointing cruise saved only by perfect weather

Chose the cruise due to a special offer. Food was boring and bland and we were unlucky enough to be put in the late sitting dinner. One night didn't get to eat until 9pm and as it was a set menu meal didn't finish until almost 11. There should have been a rotation system! Buffets were boring and bland and breakfast was basically the same every day. Fresh fruit was in short supply and limited ...

An Amazing Antarctica Experience

We enjoyed an amazing experience with Hurtigruten on their MS Midnatsol ship sailing from Punta Arenas, travelling along the Chilean Fjords to Antarctica Peninsula and back. The view was breathtaking throughout. When we cruised on smaller boats to look at glaciers and icebergs was incredible and satisfying. Accommodation was very good and comfortable. Food was varied and very good too. Expeditions ...
