How far in advance to book Hurtigruten?

We are planning to travel from Bergen to Trondheim on the Hurtigruten in early June 2009. How far in advance should we book?

I'd book as soon as you know your dates. We're doing the same route in two weeks. When I called in February to book two cabins, I got the last two. There are few port to port cabins in the high season (June through August) because so many people do the entire six nights.

We are going to travel in August. We booked our trip in November and we got the last U type cabin for departure on August 5!!!

Hi, we have just booked online this weekend to travel on the 6th August '08 for the trip from Trondheim to Bergen including the outside cabin and had no problems. All the best.

Possibly southbound Trondheim to Bergen is more available than northbound Bergen to Trondheim, because a lot of people choose northbound during the summer so as to include the Geiranger fjord.

It also depends on which ship sails on your required date. Many people choose their dates to fit with a particular ship, and some ships are especially popular.
