We have just returned from a Northern Lights cruise with Hurtigruten and it was anazing. We were on the oldest ship in the fleet, built in 1956 and refitted twice but it was like going on the Orient Express - all polished wood and brass fittings. Shame this ship is being retired this year but the trip was superb. We boarded the ship at Tromso and sailed round the North Cape to Kirkenes and back to Tromso. We were very lucky and saw the Aurora every night although only one night in its full majesty. Make sure you tell reception to wake you if the lights are visible as loudspeaker anouncements cease at 10:00pm. Recommend buying the drinks mug at 250 NOK which entitles you to free tea/coffee for the trip and once you have drunk 8 cups, you are in profit. Also recommend visiting to North Cape itself and the dog sledding.
