Named for the first ship to ever sail for Hurtigruten back in 1893, MS Vesteralen is one of the smallest in the fleet. She has bright, welcoming décor throughout and is perfect for exploration cruising, with amazing views offered from the public bars and lounges.
When it comes to dining, you’ll find that the main dining room offers an exceptional selection of freshly prepared Norwegian specialities. This incredibly elegant place to dine serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with large bay windows so you can look out to sea, whilst enjoying your meal. There are other more casual options also at the 24-hour Café. Here you will find the ideal place for a hot cup of coffee and a tasty treat.
With the ship’s emphasis on some of the world´s most beautiful and untouched scenery, the leisure facilities are minimal on-board. You can head to the lounges and unwind amongst friends, or enjoy the incredible scenery as it passes you by from the top deck. The expedition team on-board offer a fantastic insight into the destinations on your itinerary, with lectures, presentations and activities to enjoy on-board. There is also a children’s playroom, fitness centre and shop on-board.
Hurtigruten does not allow children under five to travel to Antarctica, with no other age restrictions elsewhere. Though MS Vesteralen does offer a playroom for children, the ship does not majorly cater to younger audiences, so bear this in mind if you’re looking to travel with family.
When it comes to entertainment, you won’t find any Broadway shows or high-end productions, but the ship does offer an exceptional art collection and a panoramic observation lounge from which you can enjoy the most scenic views. Some musical entertainment and informal lectures on some parts of the voyage may also be offered. Lounges include the Vesteralstuen Lounge, Trollfjord Lounge and the Fyret Panorama Lounge – each of which is perfect for an evening tipple with your new found friends..
