  3. Nordnorge
From the moment we were onboard, to the moment we reluctantly left, we loved our journey aboard the Nordnorge. We loved that it was a small ship, with a job to do, delivering post, packages and people, to the little ports along the Norwegian coast. Our cabins were small but very comfortable, though we did take advantage of an upgrade to a suite later on in the cruise. The surroundings were smart and comfortable, clean and welcoming. Food was great ! A wonderful wide array, lots of choice at breakfast and lunch. Evening dinner was elegantly sufficient. A 3 course dinner, that always reflected the local dishes onshore. Of course, alcohol was expensive, but we found a wine package was fine for a glass of wine each for the 4 of us. Above all, the crew were wonderful, friendly and very hardworking, not afraid to swap from waiting to taking on other tasks, they were local Norwegians, and were all justly proud of the job they were doing, and of their country. This ship definitely had a 'family' feel to it. The Fjords were breathtaking, and the scenery the whole time, was just lovely. Our entertainment was in the arriving at the ports along the way. Watching people greet each other, or wave goodbye, the unloading of parcels and post. We could often disembark, and enjoy a visit to the towns. Waving to passing ships was made into a fun activity, along with passing under bridges, spotting whales, and sea eagles, looking at the landscape, it was all good fun !! If you want to dress up, have on tap entertainment, be amongst a crush of thousands, then this trip is not for you. But if you want a more simple, gentle and very real experience, I would definitely recommend this lovely journey. We didn't want to leave.

Truly the most beautiful voyage in the world

Cabin Review

Cabin 606
We started off on deck 5, and our cabin was small, but comfortable and sufficient. However, when we heard about upgrading to a suite halfway into our journey, we went for it !
Our suite was smart, roomy and comfortable. we were able to sit with our 2 friends and make a coffee during the day.
The only problem we encountered was that there were no blinds at the windows. As it was midnight sun, and as I don't sleep well, this was a problem at first. But on request, 2 blinds were fitted, though they were white and didn't cut out the light ! But at least the request was noted and sorted straight away.
