First Time Cruiser
1-10 of 61 Hurtigruten Richard With Cruise Reviews
This cruise was initially offered to us by another company but we ultimately decided we would be getting a better experience and better value for money.
Embarkation and disembarkation went well.
The ship was ample for our requirements although the cabin was adequate the shower area was small.
But all in all the staff and crew helped make our experience excellent.
Our Trip in the ...
Trip was recommended by a travel agent, it was also chance to see the Northern Lights. We didn't want a big cruise ship for our first cruise, we also wanted a trip to the Arctic Circle we this trip provided. The trip to the main port in the Arctic cancelled due to the weather which was very disappointing. The lights made a very brief appearance which also added to the frustration, I accept we were ...
I chose this cruise to time the Arctic Circle crossing with my birthday and I wanted to see the Northern Lights.
I chose Hurtigruten after online research and would definitely travel with Hurtigruten again.
The ship was incredibly comfortable and clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful and all spoke excellent English.
The Expedition team were knowledgeable and very experienced in ...
This cruise and everything about our time in Norway was above and beyond all our expectations
We had early unseasonal cold weather with snow which was wonderful for us as we come from a hot & sunny climate & never see snow and it turned everything into a fairyland.
We chose Hurtigruten as we wanted to see as much of Norwegian life as possible and being on a "Ferry' stopping a little ports ...
We arrived 2 days before the departure at Bergen to visit ourself the city from Paris (2 days are too long for visiting Bergen).
The cruise was very confortable : Polar interior cabin was small but very cosy. Every meal was so good. We ate many local product : fishes, berrys, brown cheese, ... And sometimes we ate french pasteries on breakfast.
All cruise's team was at our service for ...
We had always wanted to do the Norwegian coast and my parents took the journey probably 40 years ago and loved it. Our Swedish friends, who we travel with, suggested we take this trip and we jumped at the chance. We understood this is not a cruise but a trip on a supply ship. We had taken the same type of trip before on the St. Lawrence so we fully understood the difference between cruise and ...
We chose this cruise to celebrate our 10th anniversary and as a way to see a large part of remote Norway in a somewhat short amount of time wherein both my husband and I could sit back, relax, do what we wished to each day and not have to worry about the planning, logistics or stress of getting from place to place, figuring out meals or finding places to stay along the way. We chose Hurtigruten ...
I wanted to explore the coast and fjords of Norway. This cruise accomplishes this to the highest degree. This is both a working ship and smaller ship cruise with 500 passengers on average. The ship's course both north and south avoids open ocean travel and follows the fjords and sounds through an intricate complicated shoreline; a coast that was not accurately mapped until the 20th Century.
We had always wanted to travel on the Hurtigruten, and so we booked with the Richard With because it had recently undergone a re-fit.
Getting to the ship was so simple. We left from Cardiff airport to Bergen where the coaches we waiting to take us to the ship. Unfortunately there were only two people on reception when we arrived at check-in and so we had a long time standing in queue before ...
We went on recommendation from a friend.
The cruise is designed for the older person and not really suited for families, certainly not for teenagers.
The ship is smaller than a traditional cruise ship but this leads to a more personal and friendly atmosphere aboard the ship.
There is no traditional entertainment, however the lectures and gatherings are brilliant, entertaining and ...
