Hurtigruten MS Kong Harald Cruises

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.

  • Launched: 01 Jan 1993

MS Kong Harald Reviews

Peter John Hughes

star rating

This ship was launched in 1993 and it was recommended to us by friends who had travelled on it before. Now it is very unique that you don’t do these ships for their luxury of staterooms, its all about the scenery and absolutely amazing exploration trips we did. We just took a basic Outside cabin and it was small but clean and ok for the 2 of us, once we adapted to the single beds…… We completed the 11 day coastal Voyage from Bergen and we booked in to stay at the amazing Kirkenes Snow hotel, which will stay with me forever , it was great!! But very cold

We have seen everything on this trip as the benefit travelling with HUrtigruten, they hug the Norwegian coast line.. I would totally recommend this to others as I believe its once in a lifetime journey.

We boarded the shipin Bergen which carries 622 passengers for our adventure. It is a contemporary ship which sails to explore Norways coastal communities and the stunning Fjords.

The food was very good and suited our tastes. The Service on board was very efficient and next time I think we would prefer first sitting for dinner as second sitting is a little on the late side for us. The stops we found most interesting and nearly always felt we had sufficient time to walk around and explore. We did find the wine and drinks on board rather expensive, there is a coffee deal you can do on board but as we are not really coffee drinkers we did not take advantage of this. The Fjords scenery was absolutely superb and we where so please that the weather also favoured us with clear bright days. Our cabin was clean but small.
