THE M/S FINNMARKENWe have had the chance to review this ferry. We have found it lacking in nothing. The ship is quiet even no engine noise, clean and has not shown major issues in docking or departures. The food is excellent, the staff are responsive, the maps are accurate, the access to public facilities frequent AND where they should be. Our room was clean by the time breakfast was over, the decor up to date and appropriate, the views are dramatic, the lounge chairs comfortable and plentiful. Truly we have nothing to suggest for improvement.
The calm seas have soothed us and lulled us into relaxing.
(Another great positive about the ship/crew: going ashore is simple and painless. They capture our departure by reading the bar code on our ship card as we exit, and again as we re-board after being with friends.)
Birger gave us a walking tour from the Cathedral across the Town Bridge to the OLD TOWN showing us the bicycle elevator....you set your bike to a groove in the road, push a button and the bike with you on it sails up the hill. WOWSER!
We stopped for coffee in a kaffehus called Dromedar (dromedary camel) for a relaxing visit until time for us to walk back to the car and back to the ferry.
