Traditional cruising

16 Dec 2018

They are very set in their traditional ways, eg set sittings for dinner leaving those at the second sitting only to sit down at 8.30. Service in the FourSeasons restaurant is dreadfully slow in the evening so dinner takes 2 hours. Destinations are good and the staff (Philippine mostly) are great.

An excellent all round service.

ROL Cruise's, as it happens, are based, in my old home town, although I now live in France. I have visited them twice, and I found the whole experience first class in that they were friendly, welcoming and efficient. I would certainly recommend them to others, and use them again.

Very helpful

The Ship


Starting 1 April 2018, MS Finnmarken will have her own on-board Expedition Team, and the ship will serve as a university at sea. Interesting lectures inside as well as out on the sun deck of the ship make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and the waters we sail in. The Expedition Team will host a lecture programme and evening gatherings daily. Out on deck you may participate in live points of interest to learn more about the nature, culture and other phenomena we encounter along the coast. In addition, the Expedition Team will introduce you to the uniquely Norwegian notion of 'friluftsliv´, and encourage you take part in 'friluftsliv´ hikes and activities during the journey. The dedicated Expedition Team has one mission: to enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you encounter during the voyage. MS Finnmarken is beautifully appointed and decorated in the Art Deco style that was fashionable when the first ship with this name was built. Rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation characteristic of the Art Deco style are found throughout the vessel. MS Finnmarken is also the only Hurtigruten ship with both a swimming pool and Jacuzzi on deck. A defining feature of the vessel is her bow, and from deck 5 you can venture to the very tip of the ship. Children aged 7-13 are invited to take part in the complimentary year-round Young Explorers Programme on MS Finnmarken. A dedicated on-board host plans and organizes all activities, focusing on fun and eco-friendly learning that is tailor-made to awaken a sense of adventure. The kids get a deeper understanding of nature, climate and culture, and are introduced to topics related to wildlife, local food, environmental protection and famous explorers. There will be daily on-board activities for the Young Explorers, relating to the different topics.
