An exploration up the western Greenland coast from Iceland.

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We chose this cruise as we were interested in Greenland and it's communities. To some degree we also wanted to see the artic wilderness and glaciers and get an appreciation for the damage that global warming is doing.to these sensitive environments. Fridtjof Nansen is an excellent ship being only a couple of years old. The size of the vessel (500 passengers) makes it a relatively intimate ...

This cruise line should stick to ferry service ! Having recently been to Antartica on Swan Hallenic we were expecting much of the same on this Arctic Cruise. We were sadly mistaken for sure, Surly staff in general, they seemed very over worked, except for the bar staff. Nickel and diming for most everything, for example, if you were late for lunch and ate in the restaurant that was ...

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

Having taken 25+ cruises, I was excited to try “luxury” Ponant Cruises for the first time. The newness of their ships and their “all included” luxury positioning was appealing. Upon boarding the ship, first impressions were strong - everything was clean, contemporary, and crisp. Solid cabin design, with separate compartment for the toilet and other thoughtful design elements. The quality ...

Roald Amundsen - lovely ship, poorly run.

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

The Roald Amundsen is a brand new ship of a very high standard, but there are issues with how it is run. We chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Greenland and this seemed to be a good itinerary. We were excited by the thought of a new ship, and thought there were a couple of cruises before ours, so that any teething issues would be sorted out. This proved not to be the case. The ...

Following a run-in with cancer, this voyage was to be the holiday of a lifetime. Consequently I opted for the suite package ; sadly this was to be a very expensive mistake. Check-in. A late change meant guests were to join the cruise via the Harpa Concert Hall in Reykjavik city centre. Check-in was @ 15:00 but people were arriving throughout the day. Before check-in time there was no ...

Overall a good cruise with a new ship where you need to accept that some proccesses dont work. The new ship is great. Our suite on deck 9 was really perfect. The main restaurant has a structure we dont like. Its like a quick restaurant. The extra restaurant for suite guests is really good in service. The expectation is that the menu will change within a 2 weeks cruise. Visiting areas ...

Poor communications and poor 'expedition' logistics marred the trip.

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

Greenland was rightly the desired destination, with the ship sailing from Reykjavik, Iceland. Passengers were inconvenienced at the outset by the fact that Hurtigruten had taken delivery of the ship before necessary US documentation was in place, consequently the itinerary lost a day's sailing around Iceland. Six weeks on, the promised refund is yet to arrive. Embarkation was shifted from the ...

Lovely cruise

Review for Le Laperouse to Arctic

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

My cruise with Ponant was definitely a memorable experience! We were in the Reykjavik to Bergen cruise onboard Le Laperouse, the newest ship in the fleet. The ship was modern and luxurious - perhaps not to everyone’s taste, but I really liked it! However, the two things that stood out the most for me were the staff’s excellent and friendly service and the sumptuous food. The restaurant staff knew ...

My friend actually chose this Ponant cruise because of its interesting title: "In the Wake of the Vikings", and because of historical interest and curiosity about lands I had never before visited I decided it was a grand idea to see parts of Iceland and Scotland and finish in Norway where great adventurers had set out from to explore initially unknown lands. This cruise did not disappoint - the ...

Fabulous circumnavigation of Iceland

Review for Ocean Endeavour (Adventure Canada) to Arctic

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This was a trip circumnavigating Iceland (the system won't permit writing Iceland as the destination -- Iceland is below the arctic circle except for a tiny area on one offshore island, so Arctic is not the correct destination, but it's the only reasonable one to choose from the available choices). Adventure Canada tours (this was our second trip with them) involve intensive experiences with ...
