The ship is named after the Lofoten Islands just north of the Arctic Circle, famous for their dramatic scenery and often described as 'a masterpiece.' MS Lofoten is the second Hurtigruten ship to carry this name. She was refurbished and refitted in 2003, but most of the original style and atmosphere are preserved. With unique lounges and panoramic decks, this 'old lady' is simply incomparable. The cabins are plain, but very cosy. Suited to the mature, destination focused cruiser.
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 a set dinner.
The emphasis onboard is on relaxation and discovery, and not the commercial entertainment that is so often a part of conventional cruises. Hertigruten’s aim is to get you closer to unique environments and to allow you to share the experience with your fellow travellers. Occasionally there may be some musical entertainment onboard in the evenings.Life on Board
