Classic Norwegian Coastal Voyage

  • Destination: Arctic
  • Departure Date: 07/01/19
  • Duration: 11 Nights
Overview

The ship is named after the Lofoten Islands just north of the Arctic Circle, famous for their dramatic scenery and often described as 'a masterpiece.' MS Lofoten is the second Hurtigruten ship to carry this name. She was refurbished and refitted in 2003, but most of the original style and atmosphere are preserved. With unique lounges and panoramic decks, this 'old lady' is simply incomparable. The cabins are plain, but very cosy. Suited to the mature, destination focused cruiser.

Unique Features

Hurtigruten ships are working vessels operating a regular service to a set timetable. The ships carry goods, vehicles and passengers between ports, by night and day, as an integral part of Norwegian daily life. The ships are calling at ports around the clock. You may expect some noise and vibration in a few cabins during loading of goods. This varies depending on the location of your cabin and the type of ship. Also, noise affects people differently and what may be a problem for one person may not be a problem for another. Please ask the reservation team for advice on the best cabin location for you.

Gratuities

It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage, but if you feel that crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.
