It’s been years since Hurtigruten’s MS Fram paid a day-visit to Port Canaveral. I was excited for the opportunity to tour this Norwegian ship and stay aboard for a buffet lunch. After all these years, the impression it made on me still lingers, and all in a good way.
It’s only natural that when I received a copy of Hurtigruten’s 2018 North America itineraries that I wanted to share it. If any of these trips fit into your schedule for next year, I highly recommend that you reserve your stateroom asap.
Hurtigruten has voyages venturing to charming small towns like Portland, Maine and Acadia National park plus New York City and Halifax on its Northeast and Atlantic Canada cruises.

One of my readers just returned from a 12-day Arctic Circle cruise aboard the MS Richard With and said that I’d better put that itinerary on my bucket list. So now in addition to one of these North American cruises, I have to add Arctic Circle, too. The list just keeps growing!
