SHIP Information

MS Vesterålen provides passengers an authentic heritage experience. In its exciting programme you will learn more about the ship´s maritime operations, logistics and hotel operations. You will get an opportunity to get closer to the Hurtigruten operation and to learn more about the operation along the Norwegian coast. The programme includes the following:

- Different topics every second day, related to Hurtigruten´s operations. Evening talks hosted by the ship´s tour leader, including interviews with different crew members who share their insights about work and life on board.

- A short film and/or presentation during the evening talk programme about the engine room, bridge, galley, cargo deck, and more.

- Practical courses within relevant topics, including "Learn to read and use marine charts" and "Make the Norwegian traditional dinner Fårikål". Due to limited capacity, these courses are available for a fee and can be booked on board .

- Operational and historical `points of interest´/ fun facts presented on deck along the sailing route.

- An exhibition about Hurtigruten´s history, ship design and construction, route planning, navigational facts and operational development.

- A logbook of the entire journey available for purchase at the end of the trip. 

MS Vesterålen will be refurbished at the end of 2019. All the common areas will get an upgrade, including the lounge and 'Fyret' bar. The refurbishment will take care to ensure that MS Vesterålen continues to provide passengers with an authentic heritage experience. 

Highlights

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.

Dining

Visiting 34 ports, Hurtigruten have an exceptional opportunity to get fresh produce from local suppliers everyday. This means delicious new and fresh ingredients, both from coastal and inland areas.

Based on the season's best ingredients, the chefs create either three-course dinners or lavish buffets. Being a coastal voyage, seafood dominates the menu, accompanied with fresh vegetables and delicately flavoured sauces. Each dinner ends with traditional desserts, like home-made cakes, puddings, berries or sorbet. Breakfast and lunch is served buffet style, while dinner is a set dinner.

Enrichment

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

Entertainment

The emphasis onboard is on relaxation and discovery, and not the commercial entertainment that is so often a part of conventional cruises. Hertigruten's aim is to get you closer to unique environments and to allow you to share the experience with your fellow travellers. Occasionally there may be some musical entertainment onboard in the evenings.

Health & Fitness

Keep yourself feeling fresh and active in the Fitness Room or sweating away the day in the sauna.

Kid & Teens

There is a playroom available for children.

Useful to Know
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.
