• Dinner times vary according to the itinerary. Typically, dinner starts at 18:00, and there will be a variety of

Specific diets, e.g. vegetarian, gluten-free etc., are generally available if sufficient notice (at least two weeks)
has been given to us in order to advise the ship. All ships are fully licensed; the price level is the same as on
mainland Norway. Restaurant opening hours vary depending on season and number of guests on board.
Further information is available on board.

Age Restrictions

All children 7 to 13 years of age are welcome to participate in the Young Explorers Program. At the beginning of the cruise, participants will be given more details about the program. Each day they will receive a special Young Explorers’ agenda of the day. There is no need to sign up for the Young Explorers’ Program before sailing – you can sign up when you arrive on the ship.  In most cases, it is not expected that parents/guardians participate in Young Explorers’ activities, but depending of the size and variation of the group, some parents may be asked to join in and help out on an informal basis. Young Explorer activities will be mainly offered in English and in the Scandinavian languages.

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.
