Helpful and friendly

13 Nov 2018

Spoke to Liam who was very helpful and not at all pushy (unlike a rival company I also got a quote from). Asked loads of questions on the first call as I hadn't cruised with CMV and didn't really know them, he knew his stuff, I then did a bit of research and called back to book. Called back a third time to add a drinks package, no problem.

Excellent friendly courteous and professional

This ultimate journey with Hurtigruten is described as “The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage” by Lonely Planet.

On this voyage, you will not only feel like an explorer, you will be one.

With spring comes the return of the warmth and daylight, which is like an infusion of vitamins, kickstarting life along the Norwegian coast. The migratory birds return, meaning the coast is teeming with life. You’ll also visit the beautiful Lyngenfjord, with its majestic mountain backdrop and unique nature. In summer, the long light days seem to energise both nature and people. Even as far south as Bergen, you can experience 19 hours of daylight. Flowers bloom, rivers fill with fish and giant waterfalls cascade towards the ocean, creating a picture-perfect setting for a summer holiday. North of the Arctic Circle, you can experience the Midnight Sun – a natural phenomenon. The autumn sailings include a visit to the incredibly beautiful Hjørundfjord. Majestic mountains surround this narrow fjord, and Hurtigruten offer several excursions that let you explore this spectacular area. Enjoy a beautiful voyage during this season, as the fresh and clear coastal air enhances the intense red and yellow that fi lls mountainsides, hilltops and forests. From the deck, you may see the sharp profiles of the highest peaks sprinkled with the first snow, against the background of an ice blue sky
