    Great experience overall

    We barely saw the lights (at the end) but it was worth it and they gave us an extra 40 mins to stay in and watch what we could of them. Host/ crew was friendly and professional. I would just say: wrap up warm, and then some. And it would have been good if they could wipe down the seats which were wet (and therefore colder). I would also pay a bit more for a bar service to come to you rather than navigating downstairs in the difficult to maneuver outfit. Also- pee first! It’s hard to get out of the warm suit in the little Loos. But a really good night and would strongly recommend it!

    Amazing Trip

    We had an amazing time searching for the northern lights on the cruise. The first night we didn’t see anything so we’re allowed to book on again for free . The second time we saw the Northern Lights in all their glory, they were beautiful. Very hard to take pictures of as cameras don’t pick them up well but the crew on the boat managed to get a great one of me and my partner which they emailed to me for free. This was very much appreciated! Crew were very helpful and when you got cold outside, the inside cabin was nice and warm with refreshments to offer. We had an amazing time.
