Default Hurtigruten Experience

Hey CruiseMates friends!

I just returned from cruising with Hurtigruten along the Norwegian coast. I produced a series of three videos. The first video was produced aboard the Nordlys with Hurtigruten. Let me know what you think, and I hope this video is helpful for those considering a Hurtigruten voyage.

Best Regards!

Smile Need Advice on the Hurtigruten Cruise

Hi there,

Me and my partner have always wanted to see the Northern Lights and think the Hurtigruten Cruise is the best option for us.

For anyone that has been on it and experienced the cruise, what did you think of it? Is it worth the hefty price tag?

Kind Regards

Hi Chris, we can't comment on Hurtigruten from personal experience, but a work colleague traveled with them and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - they bought into all the excursions.

The main reason for replying was the my wife & I traveled on CMV's Magellan out of Tilbury (London) in November 2015 and had a wonderful time. Okay CMV are 3-4* due to the ages of their ships, but did everything in line with more modern ships for entertain, facilities, activities, dining etc. I would mostly align them to NCL.

The reason we traveled in November was that you are just as likely to see the Lights, but it is a good few degrees warmer than Feb/Mar.
Before travelling we downloaded an App which tracked the Borealis and was very accurate - we saw the lights on 4 consecutive evenigns. But what we did not know until too late was that there is also an App which gave amazing results to the people taking pics on their iPhones, so whilst we were carrying tripods & cameras, they were getting better results on their 'phone, so thought it only fair to give you that heads-up.

Hope you get to make your voyage and have a memorable time.
