Customer reviews for Hurtigruten
The ship, the food, the crew and my fellow guests were all very good but being Norway everything was very expensive compared to the UK. Despite that itI has not put me off looking to book another cruise with Hurtigruten via Planet Cruise.
Lovely ship and the crew were so friendly and hard working. In particular, the entertainment/excursion team who gave some interesting talks. Food was delicious and varied. Enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi! Excursions were very well organised. They were also varied.We were well looked after and loved every minute of our holiday. The last night was the highlight as we saw the Northern Lights!
Small friendly ship very clean and comfortable but as a working ship should not be compared to a cruise ship. For us it was much more exciting being able to witness Norwegian life as we popped in and out of 34 ports and learnt from the well presented and informative lectures (these are what we classed as entertainment) given by the expedition team. There was plenty of very interesting extra guided tours and walks available but rather expensive as is the alcohol but you are in Norway. The biggest disappointment for us was the actual Northern Lights and coming to the realisation that the promotional pictures used to advertise this natural phenomenon are taken using the top of range cameras so in all probability the human eye will never see such colour and detail. Nevertheless the scenery, sunsets, sunrises, the fabulous food, all the helpful, friendly and happy team on board the Nordlys made our 12 day round trip a brilliantly exciting, different and unique experience. We had an Artic Superior cabin on deck 6.
All the staff were friendly & helpful at all times . It was a happy ship . The beds were comfortable & the cabin cleaned every day . Lectures were interesting & informative . The excursions were well organised & efficiently run ,with plenty of help getting into the tender boats & getting out onto the shore & then back again. Food was excellent & plentiful . All in all a brilliant holiday , with the spectacular backdrop of the Antarctic scenery & wildlife .Travel to & from was uneventful. The hotel in Santiago was a pleasant overnight stay . The only flaw was the hotel in Buenos Aires , which was dull & our room had a broken chair in it which my friend sat on & nearly fell onto the floor .
