Ship Information


You can choose from different sized cabins which are all decorated in tasteful and practical ways. No matter whether you would prefer an inner or outer cabin, or a luxury suite- all of them have something special to offer. The ambience on board is bright and friendly, and all public areas have been decorated by famous artists.

Dining Information

Delicious buffets await you for breakfast and lunch, as well as three-course dinners each evening. A wide range of seafood specialties is available on board, and vegetarian as well as other special diets are gladly accommodated. Furthermore there are sandwiches, drinks and different snacks available in the cafeteria. You can purchase souvenirs in the shop to bring back to friends and family at home.

Entertainment and Activities

Relax in one of the lounge chairs in the salon or go on exciting land excursions - the MS Nordlys makes both possible. There are stops at numerous harbors over the course of the journey where you will have enough time to explore the countryside on foot or by one of the bicycles that are available on board. Enjoy the evenings with great music in the cosy bar area.

Dress Code

Relaxation and the enjoyment of nature have always been priorities with Hurtigruten. We therefore believe your time on board should be spent at your leisure. As the weather can be unpredictable at times, we advise all passengers to bring waterproof clothing. Gloves, scarves, hats, and warm layers of underclothing should not be forgotten, especially during winter months. Sturdy footwear and hiking sticks are recommended for land excursions. Among the most important items to bring are sunglasses, as ultraviolet rays reflected by ice and snow can be dangerous for the eyes.

Additional Information

Languages spoken on board are English and Norwegian. Computers are available in the Internet Café.
