The category "Polar Outside cabins" (USPO) includes accommodation in an unspecified outside cabin (Hurtigruten's cabin type N or O). This means that one can not pre-book a specific cabin type or number, nor the deck where the cabin is located. The cabins have a window which can not be opened though. The cabin will be assigned to you upon check-in, and can be located on the upper, middle or lower deck.
All the outside cabins have private shower/WC. The double cabins have twin beds, with the exception of some cabins on the renovated ships that have double beds, and the MS Vesterålen, MS Lofoten and MS Spitsbergen where some cabins have bunk beds. All triple cabins have two lower and one upper berth (=bunk bed).
Please contact us for information about cabin upgrades.
Hurtigruten is served by a fleet of 11 ships. All of them are working ships, transporting goods in addition to passengers. Since the ships will also call to ports during the night, some noise might occur. The facilities provided by the ships are uniform, but the choice of colours, materials and design means that each ship retains its own character.
They have large, comfortable lounges providing good views, fully licensed restaurants, cafés and bars, and souvenir shops that also sell a selection of toiletries. All, but the two oldest ships, have large panorama lounges located on the top deck.
The majority of the ships also have fitness rooms and saunas for passengers. MS Midnatsol, MS Trollfjord and MS Finnmarken have outdoor Jacuzzis. The ships MS Kong Harald, MS Polarlys, MS Nordkapp and MS Nordnorge have all been refurbished in 2016, and will have a Jacuzzi.
The very newest ships have several bars, restaurants and cafés with varied menus, extended conference facilities and internet cafés. All the ships, with the exception of MS Lofoten and MS Vesterålen, have good facilities for disabled people and have lifts. All ships apart from MS Lofoten can transport cars.
