Hurtigruten are great for disabled passengers

Hurtigruten would of been the last company I ever looked at if someone had rang me up looking for a disabled cabin going to the Fjords. Not because there a bad company but just because of the type of ship they operate.


Hurtigruten aren't your normal cruise company sailing up to the Fjords.
They are what I class as working ships, sailing up and down the coast of Norway all year round delivering supplies to all the little towns and villages that other bigger cruise ships just can't reach. They also transport passengers from one port up to the next when the roads become blocked by snow.
As well as offering all this though they also let people book onboard them as a 'proper' cruise and they're perfect for viewing the real Norway, whether you want to see the Midnight Sun in the height of summer or the Aurora Borealis in the middle of the winter.
Hurtigruten can offer it to you come rain or shine, sun or snow. In fact they're one of the only companies to offer cruises to see the Northern lights in the winter.
But back to their disabled cabins. Their two biggest ships, the Midnight Soul and the Trollfjord, (both carrying a maximum of 500 cruise passengers), both have wheelchair adapted cabins with fitted wet rooms. Both rooms have fully adjustable electric beds and because of the size of the ships and the ports they visit you wont be stuck onboard watching every one else disembark - Hurtigruten don't have any tender ports!
So the next time your thinking about cruising to the fjords and you need a disabled cabin make sure you give me a call about this great company.

Happy cruising.
