Our commitment to safety is as absolute as our passion for exploration. Safeguarding our guests, colleagues, partners, wildlife, nature, and the communities we visit will always be our number one priority. Everyone on a Hurtigruten adventure will always be – and feel – safe, comfortable – and excited!
Across all of the ships there are differing grades of accommodation to help you find exactly what you need. Low grades offer just a basic arrangement of an upper and lower bed and a wash basin, while the the highest grades include a seating area as well as the bedroom, TV, stereo, internet access, mini-bar and a private balcony in most instances.
Most cabin grades are spacious and with plenty of storage space for all your belongings. They are stylishly finished and provide a comfortable home from home for the duration of your journey. There are also special cabins available which provide access and assistance for any disabled guests.
Everything that guests consume during their Hurtigruten cruise will have been carefully planned and thought out, with almost all of it being locally sourced and heavily influenced by regional delicacies that are found in the areas to which you will travel.
Menus in ‘Norway’s Coastal Kitchen’ change with the seasons and Norwegian specialities are usually at the forefront. Guests will be able to sample dishes such as baked Arctic char, kvæfjordkake (a dessert made from almonds, meringue and vanilla cream) and, of course, reindeer meat. However, the tastings will not always be offered in formal surroundings as flavourful morsels are often provided on deck to allow cruisers to get a feel for what’s available.
Whilst around 85% of Hurtigruten’s current cuisine is provided by local producers from the thirty five different ports that they visit, the company is working on increasing this even more. By partnering with the government and ‘Innovation Norway’ they are helping independent suppliers grow their businesses to be able to then sell their products to the ships in the future.
There are plenty of excellent public facilities for you to use during your time with Hurtigruten that range from comfortable lounges, in which you can sit back and relax, to spacious conference rooms which can be privately booked.
There are multiple cafés and bars which provide lighter food options than the main restaurant and an extensive range of drinks to ensure your glass, and your general disposition, is always more than half full. The sauna and swimming pools will provide a serine environment in which you can while away the hours between ports, whilst the laundry and internet facilities allow you to keep in touch with everyone back home and ensure you always have something fabulous to wear in the evenings. There is even a playroom on some ships to help keep younger guests occupied during your time at sea.
