Hurtigruten recently announced that three of its ships will be transformed into hybrid-powered vessels. MS Trollfjord will be renamed to MS Maud and undergo hybrid installation, transforming into a premium expedition cruise ship during early 2021. Using natural Scandinavian materials such as granite, oak, birch and wool, all public areas will be redesigned to create a relaxed and stylish look and feel. All cabins and suites will be completely refurbished. Hurtigruten’s signature Science centre will also be added, packed with state of the art technology and high tech gadgets.
MS Maud has been designed to take you on an expedition of the Norwegian coast in maximum comfort, equipped for a sustainable and memorable expedition. She is an ice class 1C ship equipped with advanced technology that makes her exceptionally well-suited for expedition cruises in Norway.
Hurtigruten recommends pre-booking shore excursions. This can be done up to four weeks prior to departure (two weeks if paid by credit card) at the rates presented. Shore excursions are also available to book on board but spaces may be limited. Please note: all excursions booked on board will be charged in Norwegian Kroner.
There is no official dress code on board but some guests choose to change to casualwear for dinner. The weather in Norway can vary during the course of each voyage (or even during the day!) so we recommend reading our climate zone packing guide to ensure you’re ready for every possibility.
Norwegian cuisine is served on board. Chefs use only the very best locally sourced, seasonal ingredients which are collected from port each day and used to prepare a range of delicious dishes.
Specific diets can be catered for if requested in good time. Passengers on strict diets may find that there is limited choice. A 3-course vegan menu is available in the evenings on voyages of 12-days.
Most Hurtigruten ships along the Norwegian coast have an Expedition Team who undertake special activities on board such as lectures and presentations, on-deck guiding as well as hikes and outdoor activities in many ports. The majority of activities take place both inside the ships and out on deck and are designed around the season you’re sailing in. Hurtigruten aims to get guests closer to unique environments.
Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Diners Card are all accepted as payment options on board. Norwegian Kroner (NOK) is the on board currency.
Laundry rooms with washing machines, dryers and irons are available on all ships. Tokens can be purchased at reception.
The official languages on board are Norwegian and English, though some service crew also speak German. The majority of shore excursions are guided in two or three languages.
Yes, wireless internet is available on board for a small fee, unless already included in your Select or Platinum fare.
It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage. If you feel that crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.
