We're considering Norwegian Coastal Voyages (NOT NCL) for our next cruise, but don't know where to get feedback. Has anyone taken a Norwegian Coastal Voyages cruise? We're thinking about the northbound cruise from Bergen to Kirkenes. Any advice? Looking for observations about ships, cabins, etc.
Of all my travels, the one thing that I regret on not doing was to take the coastal ferry in Norway. I just ran out of time. I did make it to the Nordkapp and I hiked about 1/5 of the Kungsledden trail.
This was about 10 years ago, so most of the information that I have is outdated. The ferry is called Hutigrute and when I did a web search I came up with Hutigruten.com. In addition, the previous poster has a link. I haven't looked at it yet.
I would try to stay a couple extra days in Bergen along with the Lofoten (SP?) Islands. The fjords are also unreal. O.K. I'm rambling.
Sorry, not much help on the ships. Have a nice journey.
Thanks! Jana, read your review and enjoyed it very much. Also read a few others posted on nbctravel17.com
Yes, it sounds like Bergen is worth spending time in...have relatives there, and many other places in Norway.
Eek, better get planning!
