Hurtigruten 12-day cruise - Norway

By: happytraveler


Reviewed on: 16 Dec 2017

Too short! Although it was a 12-day trip, the time flew by. The panoramic lounge makes viewing the fjords an experience you will never forget! The staff are exceptional. They are only too happy to do anything to help you, including helping you put spikes on your shoes so you can walk on icy streets! They offer wonderful lectures that increase your knowledge of the country that you are seeing.
