MS Midnatsol

MS Midnatsol has a strong environmental profile and a modern design. The interior’s bright, colourful décor is inspired by the warm sunny climate, a motif also reflected in the many pieces of Norwegian modern art on display. She is also a TV star, being featured in the award winning documentary "Hurtigruten 365", made by Norwegian TV. Key qualities of the MS Midnatsol include the large, two-story panorama lounge above the bow, and the large glass expanses that allow natural light to enter, while providing extraordinary views.

Dining

Any special requests such as vegetarian, diabetic, or gluten free should be noted at time of booking and contact the head waiter about their special request when on board. Hurtigruten does its best to accommodate such requests.  All voyages include buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Dinner varies between buffets, set meals, and barbeques, and is announced in the daily program on board. Information about seating assignments will be available in the cabin upon arrival. Special requests for seating arrangements should be noted at time of booking.  Beer, wine, and soft drinks are not included during the day and may be purchased in the restaurant, cafeteria, and bar. Complimentary sparkling and still water are available for all meals on board MS Midnatsol.

Age Restrictions

Children under the age of 5 are not permitted to travel to Antarctica. There is no age restriction on other destinations. For safety reasons, it is at the captain’s discretion for children under the age of 12 to participate in shore landings.

Tipping

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 and envelopes are available in the restaurant.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols

Be assured that Hurtigruten always follow all safety guidelines as recommended by the Norwegian government. One reason for this confidence in us is because we already have exceptionally high hygiene procedures in place:

  • As normal service resumes, Hurtigruten will be reducing the overall number of guests on ships, giving you plenty of space around you when aboard.
  • In Hurtigruten's roomy restaurants, they are adding more seating sessions so that there will be fewer people having their meals there at any time.
  • Instead of self-service buffets, the chefs will serve food directly to your individual plate.
  • The kitchen will continue to uphold its usual high standards of hygiene and quality.

Strict cleaning practices on board

Count on us to already have a range of strict cleaning practices on board, with the cleanness of each ship also continuously monitored. Regular microbiological samples are taken and sent off to laboratories for testing and they use UV light to check surfaces in cabins, galleys and public areas.

Independent inspectors are invited to conduct scheduled and unannounced visits to all the ships several times a year. The excellent hygiene on board the ships is not something they leave to chance. It is the result of effective controls that have proven themselves time and again over decades of safe sailing.

In addition to this,

  • Each ship will have a new team dedicated to ensuring communal areas are continually cleaned and disinfected.
  • There will be limited use of saunas, swimming pools and gyms.
  • Hurtigruten will also have appropriate markings on the ships to help keep a safe distance from others whenever queuing on board.

Staff and your well-being

  • They have all recently completed the WHO’s official COVID-19 course for hygiene procedures and infection management.
  • Before starting work, every member of the crew undergoes a health check.
  • They have thorough first-aid training and can quickly contact healthcare professionals should any medical need arise.
