MS Kong Harald was refurbished in 2016 and now features a modern, Arctic-inspired interior. On board are three different restaurants, the Multe bakery and ice cream bar, a sauna and fitness room. Out on deck you can enjoy the view from one of our two hot tubs. There is a comfortable bar∘ at the front of the ship where you can enjoy a nice traditional drink.
The vessel also has a large compass area were you find the reception, the Expedition Team, conference room∘ and shop. The top deck of the boat features a sun deck, observation saloon and panorama lounge, all of which provide splendid views of spectacular coastal scenery.
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.
Enjoy a lecture on the ship's deck or in one of the conference rooms and learn something new.
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.

The emphasis onboard is on relaxation and discovery, and not the commercial entertainment that is so often a part of conventional cruises.

Occasionally there may be some musical entertainment onboard in the evenings.
The onboard shop sells souvenirs, knitwear, books, postcards, postage stamps and a limited supply of toiletries.
