Not only is breakfast, lunch and dinner made from locally sourced high quality ingredients — It's all included and served à la carte.

No buffets, no queues — only the full taste of Norway. We shift between four unique menus, designed to reflect the culinary traditions of the region we are sailing in, meaning new exciting dishes every few days. 

Regional menus

Flavours of the fjords: ingredients from the sun-drenched mountainsides that line the fjords and from the depths of the sea.

Flavours of the polar region: the menu will include Lofoten cod, Norwegian cod roe, dried fish and cloudberries.

Kamskjell i Hildring

Flavours of the Arctic: reflecting the region's rugged landscape and rich marine life, you'll find king crab, reindeer, and other delicacies.

Flavours of the Archipelago: taste staples of Norway's maritime heritage like klipfish, herring, halibut and brown crab.
