The ship is beautifully appointed and decorated in the Art Deco style that was modern when the first ship with this name was built. Rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation characteristic of the Art Deco style. She is the only ship with both a swimming pool and Jacuzzi on deck. A defining feature on the MS Finnmarken is her bow; from deck 5 you can actually go all the way to the tip.
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 facilities in Huritgruten cabins vary between ships and the various cabin grades. Towels and shower gel/liquid soap are provided in all cabins, in addition to this all cabins
(except for MS Lofoten and some cabins on board MS Vesteralen) also have a hair dryer. Tea/Coffee making facilities are available in suites only.
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 à la carte.
The emphasis on board is on relaxation and getting away from the commercial entertainment which is so often a part of conventional cruises. The aim is to get closer to unique environments and share the experience with fellow passengers.
As a part of Hurtigruten’s seasonal product concepts, they offer some interesting onboard activities, demonstrations and presentations during the voyages.The activities which take place both inside the vessels and outside on deck, have relevance to the season you are sailing in. It is up to the guest to join and the activities will be announced in the day to day programmes or announced on board.
