Coastal Encounters, Ecologically Aware
Our voyages enjoy the wonders of some of the most pristine environments on Earth and our key objective is to ensure that our trips are as environmentally responsible as possible.
No dressing up for dinner--no fuss, no frenzy--our aim to to sail calmly through crisp, clean air, close to the ever-changing environment.
HIGH STANDARDS As you would expect, the highest standards of design and décor can be found on board all our ships, complemented by works of art inspired by the land and seascapes through which you sail.
INFORMALITY You will find a casual atmosphere on board and there is no dressing up for dinner – our aim is to sail calmly through the crisp clean air, close to the ever-changing environment. Open seating for the buffets at breakfast and lunchtime creates a relaxed setting in which to contemplate the sights you have already seen and anticipate those still to come.
CUISINE All meals are included for one way and roundtrip passengers. Meals are served at set times in the dining room. Open seating, buffet-style for breakfast and lunch. Early or late seating for dinner – three course sit-down menu.
TOUR LEADER A tour leader is on board all ships to assist with your shore excursion bookings and answer any questions you may have.
ENTERTAINMENT The emphasis on board is on relaxation and getting away from the commercial entertainment which is so often a part of conventional cruises. Our aim is to get closer to the uniqueenvironments and share theexperience with fellow travelers. Films and presentations may be shown to illustrate the history and culture of Norwegian coastal life.
EXCURSIONS A selection of optional excursions is available. Most of these are pre-bookable (up to 14 days prior to departure) and only remaining places are
sold on board.
TIPPING Hurtigruten has a non tipping policy. However, if you feel that the crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, this is entirely at
COMFORT All the ships, except for the older, smaller, vessels have an elevator, a small library where you can immerse yourself in a good book and a café serving snacks 24 hours a day. Some of the newer ships have Jacuzzis and a fitness room.
