Public areas don’t have enough seats, generally overpriced

Review for Polarlys to Europe - British Isles & Western

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

Even in times of corona, where the ship is maximum 60% full, the seats in the public areas are not enough. I would not want to travel on this or similar ships when 100% of its capacity can be used. Looking at the Norwegian coastline surely is beautiful but it’s also more or less the only thing you can do on board so it’s very disappointing if you can’t enjoy it properly because of not enough ...

Great Norwegian scenery

We have always wanted to experience going with Hurtigruten along the Norwegian coast, and the scenery was amazing. We started in the beautiful town of Bergen and went all the way to Kirkenes. Embarkation and disembarkation were both very easy and well-organized, although there were some slight confusion about when and where to put the suitcases before disambarkation. The staff were all very ...

Expensive ferry boat, not a cruise

I don’t think I’ll ever do the Hurtigruten again. First it was very expensive, over 5000 kr per person for a 36 hour trip from Bergen to Trondheim going through Geiranger. We ordered the Arctic Superior room which was twice as expensive as a standard room, but it just had a round port window. It was no better than standard rooms on a normal cruise ship. The Hurtigruten shouldn’t be thought of ...

We chose this cruise because it has always been a dream to see the Northern Lights and have also wanted to try out Viking Ocean cruises. (Got a good deal from travel agent) From start to finish the whole experience was lovely and we really didn’t want to come home. The Star has a lovely relaxed atmosphere and is beautifully designed in a scandi style. The Staff were very friendly and the ...

It had been my dream since I was in college to visit all of Great Britain and a few years ago Highclere Castle was added to my wish list. I happened to get a brochure in the mail and I saw this cruise had everything I wanted. It is nice to stay on the ship and visit different places instead of moving from hotel to hotel. We did a nice bus tour of beautiful Bergen, Norway before the ship ...

Great cruise - highly recommended

I went on this cruise with my brother and his wife. We had always wanted to visit Norway and thought the winter cruise with the possibility of seeing the Northern Lights would be a great idea. We were not disappointed - we did see the lights although personally I was disappointed that they appeared like grey "clouds" and it was only through a good camera lens where the exposure could be left ...

A 'must do'

Review for Nordkapp to Europe - British Isles & Western

Age 60s

This cruise was chosen because our previous cruises to Norway with P&O had not gone as far north. Booking direct with Hurtigruten meant that we were covered by their travel arrangements eg charter flight to Bergen from the UK and transfer to the port. The ship is a working fast ferry that carries goods and post. However, the public areas are furnished to a high quality. The ship stops at ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

The cruise was informal; great food; friendly, attentive & knowledgeable staff; variety of ports & excursions With less passengers than the larger ships, people could get to know each other and the staff which led to a friendly atmosphere The food was good quality, with something for everyone (although it did include a lot of fish - but I expect there were vegetarian / meat options if ...

We chose this cruise as it is a ferry and not overally "touristy" as an anniversary and birthday present for us. This was such an experience. The staff are amazing the scenery is fantastic. Normally we never repeat a holiday BUT this is an exception. We had a partial view cabin which was very comfy as we thought we may spend some time there on the days we had nothing planned, however there ...

Age 60s

I'd wanted to see the Northern Lights and go on a cruise for years. I'd looked at Hurtigruten along with other companies. The Hurtigruten seemed expensive but offered fewer 'on board' activities (musicals, casino, entertainment). I spoke to my travel agent and one of the company had been with Hurtigruten and raved about it. I also decided that for this trip I was more interested in the culture ...
