Review about 7-Day Classic Voyage North by Tom and Judy Backenwood
What an amazing journey! Cruising in a small ship is so different from a big ship experience. With a small Hurtigruten ship you can you get really close to the Norwegian coast and can visit so many ports. Some of the ports were very small and we stayed there just about 15 min but other ports were larger and we could explore the location on foot or take an excursion. The ship captain surprised us how skillfully he was navigating the islands and fjords of the coast. We came very close to the cliffs, almost reaching out to touch some of them.
Could not fault the food and staff on board . The ship was very nice, good lounge-bar in front of the ship on deck 7, and there was a lovely coffee bar. We had very delicious food - lots of fresh fish and - we enjoyed it! Free drinking water was a good thing, and the wine selection was good, but a bit expensive. The highlight was the beautiful landscape of the Norwegian coast - we had a great trip!
Thank you Nordic Saga staff for great service and all the details provided before the trip which was very helpful. Look forward to new trips.
