  1. Very excited about the feedback! Let’s just hope the current situation allows for travel early 2020.
  2. Hello All, I posted yesterday under a under another topic but wanted to start with a new question. As we are from the US, we’re resolved our October cruise will be a no-go. We’re looking at options to reschedule and may be considering March versus October 2021. We were originally sailing Southbound on the Trollfjord but the Kong Harald was suggested as a good alternative (thanks). Our goal is to see the Northern Lights and the beautiful coastline. So, any info on sailing in Mid-March would be appreciated. Thanks....
  3. Thanks for the recommendation; I’ll be checking out potential 2021 dates.
  4. We’re working on options; we cannot rebook without losing our deposit since our cruise hasn’t been cancelled, is scheduled after 9.30.20 and US travel hasn’t been determined through the fall months. Our option is to pay in full and wait for a cancellation but hoping Hurtigruten will allow us to move our deposit to 2021. Thanks for reminding me to check the Norwegian site. We’ll have to research alternate ships as we we’re traveling on the Trollfjord.
  5. With an October 2020 Southbound cruise booked, my husband and I find ourselves in limbo. We have final payment coming due, ineligible for free rebooking (I believe free rebooking is available on itineraries up to 9/30) and feel travel from the US will most likely not be allowed. We are trying to look ahead to 2021 since we still want to reschedule in some fashion and, as mentioned, cannot find 2021 sail dates. Any clue as to when these sailing dates will be posted?
  6. SarniaLo, Thanks for the beautiful pictures! We are sailing Southbound mid-October with the hopes of some fall colors and the Northern lights! Either way, this will be our first trip to Norway and will enjoy every minute.
  7. Clo, We agree! Our trip is two years in the making with a lot of overtime hours worked, all for our "travel fund". We never take for granted these opportunities to explore. Please check out the Gamme cabins/ packages offered by the Snowhotel; maybe we are traveling at a good time of year as our price for a 2 night stay plus extras was much more manageable.
  8. Just a quick update regarding Kirkenes. We were able to book a package at the Snowhotel; transfers, 2 nights in a Gamme cabin, dogsledding, Northern Lights hunting and some meals. The Snowhotel is advertising they are open 365 days a year as well, hope to get a peek. Hoping to have a few great days in Kirkenes prior to our SB cruise!
  9. Starting in Kirkenes; hopefully we'll get a taste up North!
  10. Are cloudberries seasonal? We'll be traveling in October and hope to get a taste.
  11. I'm with you Homerody; we'll give it a try as well. Keep hearing about these cloudberries!
  12. Thanks Bella0714 and hallasm; between searching for the lights and looking over the very detailed daily programs; when will we rest? Finding a good place on deck and watching the scenery go by; perfect!!
  13. Thanks Bella0714 for the info; the time spent traveling through the Lofoten/Vesteralen region was one of the deciding factors for us choosing the SB trip. We'll make the best of any weather thrown at us! Also, We'll set aside some additional $ for extra excursions offered, very excited to experience Torghatten if offered. Did you get to see the Lights? Hallasm; thanks for the link. Are these provided in your cabin daily? They'd make great additions to my travel journal!
  14. Good to know; how was information related to the team-lead hikes communicated?
  15. The views look incredible and reviews of the hike itself point to it not being to difficult. We are looking forward to the information the expedition team members will provide; We're hoping there are additional hikes offered by the team like Torghatten!
