Review for a Arctic Cruise on Fridtjof Nansen

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We have travelled with Hurtigruten before (MS Spitsbergen Norwegian coast) but this was sooo much better. We boarded in Reykjavik and it was a little chaotic - a free for all. We were in an Expedition Suite (ME class) which was lovely. Bed was very comfortable, as were the chairs. There was a minibar fridge which was stocked with soft drinks and beers, 4 bottles of wine and jars of nuts. These ...

Review for a Alaska Cruise on Le Commandant Charcot

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Launched in 2021, Le Commandant Charcot is a Polar Class 2 rated icebreaker. It is a 245-passenger, 31,300-ton cruising vessel with high quality interiors. It is French, chic, the service is smooth, and passengers are well-heeled, experienced and predominantly elder travellers. As of 2022, Le Commandant Charcot is the only PC2 rated ship in service. Note that the strongest Canadian Coastguard ...

An exploration up the western Greenland coast from Iceland.

Review for a Europe - All Cruise on Fridtjof Nansen

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 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 ...

surprised how poor this cruise was.

Review for a Baltic Sea Cruise on Fridtjof Nansen

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

First impressions were good, then….

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Le Champlain

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

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.

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Roald Amundsen

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 ...

New but not ready yet.

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Roald Amundsen

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

Absolutely Awful Experience - Avoid This Company !

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Roald Amundsen

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

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 ...

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

Review for a Arctic Cruise on Roald Amundsen

Dad Dad
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 a Arctic Cruise on Le Laperouse

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 ...
