The journey you take on Hurtigruten cruises doesn't just take you along Norway's amazing coastline, it also takes you on a culinary journey that focuses not only on delicious food, but also on sourcing sustainable, fresh and local ingredients. No matter whether you choose to eat a three course, sit down meal or a more casual dining experience, you can expect authentic Norwegian cuisine lovingly prepared by some of the most passionate chefs at sea.

With floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the ships, guests can sit back with a drink in hand and marvel at the incredible views across the sea and the coastline of some of Norway's most breathtaking locations.
In addition, for those moments when the Northern Lights makes an appearance, the observation deck is the place to be, offering unrivalled, front seat views of one of the world's most beautiful sights.
Although Hurtigruten are more than happy to welcome cruisers of all ages, they do not provide child care, kids clubs or specific family activities onboard, although much of what is on offer can be enjoyed by guests of all ages.

We went to Antarctica November 2018 - what an amazing experience, expedition staff were fantastic and wanted you to see the best things. We were lucky with the weather lots of penguins, whales and snow - a holiday of a lifetime.
I was very disappointed with the cruise, and the weather which you could do nothing about. You chose the Richard With for us which I thought was the flag ship of the line. We discovered too late that it was the oldest ship and that the picture gallery lounge which it was supposed to have had was replaced with a large TV screen showing pictures of Norway and the room was an enlargement of the passageway. The cabin was small and I had a life boat completely blocking my small window. My deck had been changed from 5 to 6. The food was plentiful but indifferent. The staff were good. A friend who had travelled on a newer ship had had nothing but praise. I wasn’t expecting a cruise ship as such, nor did I want one, but I was really disappointed in the Richard With and your recommendations. It was an expensive holiday and I don’t think it was worth the money I paid. I think I deserve some recompense for this and I don’t want a reduction on my next holiday with you. I have photos if you want them of a totally obscured window and the space at the end of the bed- practically impossible to get round.
Excellent experience. room with no window didn't feel claustrophobic. ship had good facilities especially the lectures given by entertainment team. very interesting and informative. Food very nice . all drinks expensive although we realised this was the culture of the country. Crossing the Artic circle was a memorable experience. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Would recommend this trip as a special different type of holiday experience.
This was a good trip despite challenges with weather that can't be helped. Consequently very little visibility of Northern lights. Plenty of snow though! Nordlys is a good ship and although due for refit this year was still very comfortable. It must be remembered that this is a post ship so a lot of the stops are very short. However the scenery was fantastic and more spectacular than the Northern lights anyway. Would be interesting to do this to again in the summer. Don't forget you are effectively in Norway, so expect Norway prices for everything. The expedition team were well informed and very helpful in all aspects. Food superb. All in all a good trip with a very professional line. Would go with this company again.
