Last night, I was booking some stuff for our (brief) stay in Bergen in May. This line was in the confirmation email (but not, as you will note, the final confirmation email) they sent back to me:
Please note that regional trains and the Hurtigruten can be fully booked, especially in high season and weekends. We therefore recommend you to not make any further reservations before you have received the final confirmation e-mail.
That’s very good advice. Everyone knows about the problems regarding the regional trains, but people nearly always overlook the fact that the Hurtigruten can be fully booked.
I, for one, had never even considered a fully booked Hurtigruten.
