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.

Enrichment Facilities

Enjoy a lecture on the ship's deck or in one of the conference rooms and learn something new.

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.
