'working ships'

The Hurtigruten ships represent a unique combination of cruise ships, public transport for the people living along the Norwegian coast, and cargo/post ships.

The ships are 'working ships' and can be considered expedition ships rather than ordinary cruise ships.

In total there are more than 35 stops during the voyage - the majority of stops are for 15 to 30 minutes - only the stops in Ålesund, Tronheim, Bodø, Tromsø and Honningsvåg are more that 3 hours.

Some noise and vibration can be expected when docking and when loading of goods . Some of those stops are during night time, so depending on the location of the cabin there might be some noise when loading / unloading goods.

This is a 3 minutes video from our 15 minutes stop at Skjervøy, June 11, 2017  - from 10:30 to 10:45 pm - watch the activities at the quay when unloading and loading M/S Kong Harald in Skjervøy:
