About

Recommended for:
Expedition cruise

One of Hurtigruten’s ‘contemporary’ ships, the MS Richard With is affectionately named after the company’s founder. Captain Richard With established the Norwegian Coastal Express in 1893, which made a huge difference to life along the beautiful but daunting coastline.

A hundred years later, in 1993, Hurtigruten launched the ship that bears his name, and takes passengers in comfort along the sea routes he used.

The view is as spectacular as it has always been, and the MS Richard With is designed to make the most of them, with two panorama lounges, Horisont and Syvstjernen. There’s a warm feel on board, with cosy cabins, Norwegian art, friendly and helpful crew and hearty meals. There’s no entertainment on board, other than a singer from time to time, but with such spectacular surroundings to explore, it’s hardly needed. 

Facilities

Food & Drink                  

1 restaurant, 1 bar and 1 café

Dining

Large windows in the restaurant provide both light and views during breakfast and lunch, which are served buffet style with an enormous selection of hot and cold dishes. Dinner is a three-course set meal, based on traditional Norwegian dishes – by the end of a cruise passengers will have tried a wide range of local specialities. A café serves snacks and drinks around the clock, and the bar on Deck 4 is popular for after dinner drinks.


Entertainment

Other than a card/game room, and occasional dancing or perhaps some live music in the bar, entertainment is limited.

Spa

There is no spa on board, but there are two Jacuzzis.

Enrichment

Informal lectures are held from time to time in the conference room.

Activities
