MS Kong Harald

Originally launched to celebrate 100 years of Hurtigruten, the MS Kong Harald is a charming and welcoming ship that’s perfect for adventurous travellers. Guests can dine in the main restaurant, Torget, or the Amundsen café, which serves snacks 24 hours, while the Nansen club bar is named for the Nobel Peace Laureate and is ideal for dancing and live music.

Beyond this there are few leisure facilities, as guests mainly use their time to swap stories of their travels, although a small fitness room and sauna are good for relaxing after a long day. There is also a small playroom, ideal if any families wish to try expedition cruising.
