Hurtigruten Cruises reviews

About Hurtigruten Cruises

Hurtigruten’s ships sail along the Norwegian coast year-round, and are perfect for adventurous travelers who want in-depth knowledge about the places they’re visiting. Norwegians actually use the line as a means of transport, only staying onboard for a few ports before getting off. Other travelers, mostly from other parts of Europe, view the voyage as a regular cruise. The line also offers expedition cruises. Shore excursions and expert lectures are a huge draw for Hurtigruten cruisers, and passengers even get the chance to participate in “citizen science” projects. Pricing structure is a bit different than most mainstream cruise lines. Guests can choose from three package levels, with the highest level including more than the lowest. Though the price point might indicate luxury, Hurtigruten is not for those who want a luxury cruise. Instead, the line is perfect for those that care to learn about the environment they’ll be visiting, including the science behind some of it, as well as those seeking action-packed, adventurous excursions.
