The ship in question is a Working ship so it is a no frills experience however what you lack in “frivolity” is so worthwhile. The husky sleigh ride is phenomenal and the ski mobile experience is the most memorable of all......to be taken out into...More

First, please understand this is not a cruise, more a voyage on a ferry (we met people that were expecting a cruise ship!). We did the 12 day voyage including flights, on Finnmarken, but you can easily arrange flights yourself to Bergen which is where...More
