Meeting rooms: Facilities and prices
The meeting rooms are equipped with professional meeting technology. However, the WLAN is not always available or its quality depends strongly on the position of the ship. In the vicinity of the port, the WLAN quality is naturally better.
The price per person (for 2014) starts from 155, - Euro indoor cabin in winter. The price includes cabin, 3 meals and the conference room. For the use of the rooms the conference fee has to be booked for all participants. A single meeting room (without lump sum) can not be booked.
It is usually fed in the restaurant, where you have to share the very rich breakfast and lunch buffet with other guests. Here tables can be reserved at the set meal. For small groups can certainly be eaten in the conference room, if desired.
Also, the quality of the food varies from ship to ship, depending on which boss is currently working on the ship: In principle, that is Concept "That's how the coast", which serves the food of each location, tastes much more interesting than on many other cruises. However, despite the cooperation with Andreas Viestad, Norway's best-known TV chef, I find the concept not quite successful. Especially the execution lacks sophistication.
Equipment of ships
Apart from that, the ships are quite different, which should be taken into account at the travel date: on the MS Nordkapp, for example, there are outdoor jacuzzis, on the MS Finmark there is even a swimming pool, on the MS Polarlys only sauna and gymnasium.
In addition to the shipping, the Hurtigruten organizes excursion programs on land. During the winter months, Arctic Adventurers can look forward to dog sledging trips, snowmobile safaris and reindeer sledding trips. From November onwards we go on to the northern lights on the mainland.
I participated in a sea eagle safari in front of the Lofoten Islands in June: Quasi James Bond rip was the change of the whole group from the moving ship on a likewise traveling excursion ship. Very picturesque was the visit of the Trollfjord, an 2 kilometer long and at the junction only 100 meters wider of the lateral arm Raftsund and could observe how our Hurtigrouten ship turns in the fjord around its own axis.
Also highly recommended was the excursion to the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Vega archipelago in the Nordland region, which includes some 6.000 islands, spars and archipelago and is considered a dream destination for ornithologists. The islands, which are ideal for hiking and cycling, are also very scenic and charming.
The excursions must be booked in addition to the price. In addition, no separate excursions are possible for groups. In general, there is a disadvantage here: That everything is a bit too organized and structured - especially in the high season. At the same time, however, there are no opportunities for groups to take meals individually or book trips individually. An exclusive travel experience is not possible here.
For international event planners, it is advisable to start shipping in one of the four coastal cities of Ålesund, Trondheim, Tromsø or Kirkenes. The cities have flight connections and are therefore best accessible.
