    Oh dear...let's see what they propose. I'll be in Bergen on the 18th, so maybe a little trip on the Kong Harald to Alesund?

      The whole voyage is at risk of being cancelled. Customer Service are being very informative - there is a meeting shortly to decide what will happen. Looks like I will be on Kong Harald from what he has told me though :-(

        Round trip cancelled :-(. I have asked what the problem is...

          Oh no - I think starting the cruise in Ålesund instead of Bergen is not so bad, but cancelling the whole roundtrip. At the moment I am watching the news eagerly, because after the shipyard there is always a risk the next cruise will be cancelled.
          Do you think Kong Harald is a good alternative? (For me... I think most people know the answer!)

            I know what I think too ...unfortunately I have the time booked off work and cannot change it so I will need to save Lofoten for the next time (if she is still around ). The man who has been emailing me all day at Hurtigruten has been great, so I will let you know the final outcome. But not good at the start of Lofoten's birthday year.

              Sorry to hear that Graeme. Just a vote from me for KH - all the boats are special, not just the old ones - and it's still the world's most beautiful voyage.
              Cheers,

              Mark.

                I agree it's the most beautiful voyage of course, but having travelled on MS Finnmarken and been very disappointed I'm not sure I want to risk another modern ship. They have offered a full refund (including flights and hotels) and a price guarantee for a re-booking + 20% off.

                  That's terrible news. I do hope that there is no long term problem, and that you can get another trip fixed.

                  We decided we must go on Lofoten in her birthday year, and we picked September for our round trip. Still feels a long way off. We'll be keeping an eye on what develops.

                    According to the booking engine, the next round trip is cancelled as well...

                      The next round trip - isn't that the 50th anniversary trip, departure Bergen Mars 2?

                        Where did you find the next cruise is cancelled, too?
                        If I try to book I get the message no cabins available - this can also mean the ship is fully booked.

                          Oh apologies. I saw that it was 'unavailable' - perhaps that means fully booked

                          Comment


                            Okay, I am hoping the best. I admit that I booked the next cruise short-dated, only two days ago I booked a hotel. Since I have read the first cancellation, I have some fear....

                              Oh, me too! When are you leaving? I am on the round trip departing (hopefully) Sept27th from Bergen.

                              Do we know what is actually wrong with MS Lofoten? This is a bit scary.
                              MS Lofoten April 2006, March 2012, Feb 2013. MS Polarlys Dec 2010. MS Fram Feb 2009, Sep 2011.
                              Upcoming : MS Fram Dec 2013, MS Lofoten Sep 2014

                                Last news about Lofoten.
                                HRG site:
                                "MS Lofoten er på verksted i perioden 28.01.14 - 19.02.14.
                                Skipet blir forsinket fra verksted og kansellerer Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen 19-02.03.2014."

                                And 2.3. departs the 50th Anniversary tour. Keep fingers crossed.
