My booking was made so easy thanks to Katie.

Friendly, knowledgeable advice about the ship and very efficient booking

17 Jan 2019

Didn’t have to wait long to speak to an agent who was friendly, gave set helpful advice and made the whole booking process easy and efficient. Met ROL Reid first last tour on a South Africa cruise who were genuinely friendly and explained the benefits. First time we’ve used you to book will do again. Thanks to Katie who dealt with me.

calm flowing waters

Member of staff introduced herself and told me I can get back to her for any queries. She answered the questions I had and told me rest of the info she had to pass on. For me this is a holiday of a lifetime but she steered me through all the important stuff calmly.

GREAT SERVICE

16 Jan 2019

Speedy reply to my call, knowledgabe approachable agent who listened to my request and was able to help immediately. When he put me on hold in order to speak to the cruise line, rather than keep me listening to the awful music he said that he would call me back which he did in a very short space of time.

This must be the best

16 Jan 2019

Had not used ROL previously, but quite impressed with the initial contact and the follow up. No pressure sales, just the facts and they were quick in obtaining all the relevant information to enable us to make a decision. All paperwork arrived initially by email within 30 minutes, all correct. Staff were helpful, informative and polite, excellent service.

Swift telephone response

16 Jan 2019

Answered telephone without very long wait. Helpful. Rang back when they said they would. Answered questions straight away without demanding name and endless details first, eg "how much for a single" got an answer without providing name, DOB, email etc etc which other operators do.

As I have said a pleasant phone call with your colleague

16 Jan 2019

Arlene spent some very useful time finding out and answering cabin detail queries on the Marco Polo for me and giving me comprehensive details of the organisation of the holiday. She made the booking a very pleasant activity.

POLE POSITION

Where Hurtigruten sails in northern Norway is directly beneath the auroral zone, an area of continuous and consistent aurora activity around the North Pole. Of the 34 ports visited from Bergen in the south to Kirkenes up north, 22 are in the Arctic Circle, giving you plenty of opportunity to see the Northern Lights.

The Ship


Starting 1 April 2018, MS Finnmarken will have her own on-board Expedition Team, and the ship will serve as a university at sea. Interesting lectures inside as well as out on the sun deck of the ship make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and the waters we sail in. The Expedition Team will host a lecture programme and evening gatherings daily. Out on deck you may participate in live points of interest to learn more about the nature, culture and other phenomena we encounter along the coast. In addition, the Expedition Team will introduce you to the uniquely Norwegian notion of 'friluftsliv´, and encourage you take part in 'friluftsliv´ hikes and activities during the journey. The dedicated Expedition Team has one mission: to enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you encounter during the voyage. MS Finnmarken is beautifully appointed and decorated in the Art Deco style that was fashionable when the first ship with this name was built. Rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation characteristic of the Art Deco style are found throughout the vessel. MS Finnmarken is also the only Hurtigruten ship with both a swimming pool and Jacuzzi on deck. A defining feature of the vessel is her bow, and from deck 5 you can venture to the very tip of the ship. Children aged 7-13 are invited to take part in the complimentary year-round Young Explorers Programme on MS Finnmarken. A dedicated on-board host plans and organizes all activities, focusing on fun and eco-friendly learning that is tailor-made to awaken a sense of adventure. The kids get a deeper understanding of nature, climate and culture, and are introduced to topics related to wildlife, local food, environmental protection and famous explorers. There will be daily on-board activities for the Young Explorers, relating to the different topics.
