SAILING
UNDER THE
NORTHERN
LIGHTS

On a journey with Hurtigruten, the aurora
borealis comes to you. Sailing in the Arctic Circle
in Norway gives you the best chances to catch the
lights, so you can stop searching and start seeing.

From the convenience of our observation decks,
you’ll get a front-seat view of the lights, with no
hidden fees to pay to see them. It’s just you and
the Arctic aurora for as often and for as long as
they appear.

As the original Norwegian coastal voyage, we’ve
been sailing under the Northern Lights since
1893. No one knows them like we do.

deductible specified in Article 8(4) of the Athens

Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009.

In so far as we may be liable to a Client in respect

of claims arising out of carriage by sea, we shall

be entitled to all the rights, defences, immunities

and limitations available, respectively, to the

actual carrier and under the relevant

Conventions and nothing in these Booking

Conditions shall be deemed as a surrender

thereof. To the extent that any provision in these

Booking Conditions is made null and void by the

Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009

or any legislation compulsorily applicable or is

otherwise unenforceable, it shall be void to that

extent but not further.

Any liability in respect of death and personal

injury and loss of and damage to luggage which

we may incur to you shall always be subject to

the limits of liability contained in the Athens

Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009 for

death/personal injury of 46,666 Special

Drawing Rights (SDR) or 300,000 SDR under

Athens Convention or 400,000 SDRs under EU

Regulation 392/2009 except in the case of

liability for war or terrorism 250,000 SDRs. We

are not liable for valuables, monies or other

securities including jewellery and watches. If

they have been deposited with the reception

desk on the ship for safe keeping and a receipt

issued then in those limited circumstances the

Carriers liability will be as set out in the Athens

Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009. The

use of safes on board a Vessel is not a deposit

with the ship or with the company under the

Athens Convention or EU Regulation 392/2009

or otherwise. The limits are 1200 SDRs pursuant

to Athens or 3,375 SDRs pursuant to EU

Regulation 392/2009.

(vi) Where there is any loss of or damage to

property including luggage which is not covered

by any international convention and where

liability is not limited by reference to any

enactment, terms of conditions, then any legal

liability that we may have for any such losses or

damage will not exceed £500 per guest.

(vii) You must provide ourselves and our insurers

with all assistance we may reasonably require.

You must also tell us and the supplier concerned

about your claim or complaint as set out in

clause 11 above. If asked to do so, you must

transfer to us or our insurers any rights you have

against the supplier or whoever else is

responsible for your claim or complaint (if the

person concerned is under 18, their parent or

guardian must do so). You must also agree to

cooperate fully with us and our insurers if we or

our insurers want to enforce any rights which

are transferred.

(viii) Please note, we cannot accept any liability

for any damage, loss or expense or other sum(s)

of any description: (a) which on the basis of the

information given to us by you concerning your

booking prior to our accepting it, we could not

have foreseen you would suffer or incur if we

breached our contract with you; or (b) relate to

any business.

(ix) We will not accept responsibility for services

or facilities which do not form part of our

agreement or where they are not advertised in

our brochure. For example any excursion you

book whilst away, or any service or facility which

your hotel or any other supplier agrees to provide

for you.

14. YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AND
INDEMNITY
When you book arrangements with us you

accept responsibility for the proper conduct of

yourself and your party. If your actions or

omissions cause damage to any property in the

provision of the contracted arrangements, or

cause delay or diversion to any flight or other

means of transportation, you agree to fully

indemnify us against any claim (including

professional fees and legal costs) made against

us by or on behalf of the owner of such property

or the operator of the flight or other means of

transportation. The Captain of an aircraft or

Master of a ship has authority over the aircraft/

ship and passengers at all times when they are

boarding or on board. There will be no liability

on our part, or that of any supplier, for any refund,

compensation, or costs thus incurred.

Additionally, we will have the right to recover full

costs resulting from the incident from the

passenger.

At any port or place we may refuse to embark or

may disembark any passenger who, in the

opinion of the ship’s authorized personnel, might

be excluded from landing at further destinations

by local authorities or who may be suffering from

any contagious or infectious disease, or whose

presence may be detrimental to the wellbeing

of passengers or crew. In cases of quarantine of

the ship, or individual passengers (passengers

may be required to remain in their cabin or as

instructed by authorised personnel on board if

they or any other occupant of the accommodation

presents any symptoms or may be considered

to put other passengers at risk) we will not be

liable for expenses thus caused and in such

cases as above there will be no entitlement to

any refund or compensation and we will have no

liability for costs incurred as a result.

Your specific passport and visa and health

requirements and other immigration

requirements are your responsibility and you

should confirm these with the relevant

Embassies and/or Consulates. We do not

accept responsibility if you cannot travel

because you have not complied with the latest

requirements. If you have made independent

travel arrangements you accept responsibility

for joining the ship in good time, regardless of

any change to the sailing time or date, or to the

itinerary. We are not able to refund monies paid

to us, or any third party acting on our or your

behalf, or make compensation or other

payments where, for whatever reason, you fail

to join the ship. Passengers going ashore are

responsible for re-boarding the ship prior to

departure from port.

We reserve the right to substitute another vessel

for the scheduled vessel whether or not owned

or operated by Hurtigruten. Any part of the travel

arrangements and the voyage is subject to

cancellation, delay, modification, or island/

mainland visit cancellation for any reason,

including medical disembarkation of crew or

passengers or any other circumstances beyond

our or our suppliers’ control. You therefore

acknowledge and agree that the scheduled

itinerary for the voyage and the announced

departure and arrival times are not guaranteed

and we shall not be liable to passengers for any

damages or other claims in the event of any

delay, changes in itinerary or inability to perform

services by reason of any event or events beyond

our or our suppliers’ control.

15. INSURANCE
It is a condition of the contract with us that every

member of the booking has travel insurance in

force for the entire duration of the booking,

covering at least the cancellation of the booking

and providing medical cover for illness or injury

and repatriation while overseas. Please provide

us with the name of your insurer, together with

their 24-hour emergency number when you

book or as soon as possible.

16. TIMINGS, DELAYS AND OTHER TRAVEL
INFORMATION
Timings are estimates only and cannot be

guaranteed, even if shown on tickets. They may

be changed due to regulatory authority

requirements, weather conditions, maintenance

or technical reasons, and the ability of

passengers to check in and board on time.

Sometimes delays cannot be avoided but in such

situations, in conjunction with our local agents

or representatives, we will try to ensure your

comfort during the course of any delay.

Where the port of embarkation is in the EU and

the company reasonably expects the departure

of a cruise to be delayed for more than 90

minutes beyond its scheduled departure time,

passengers departing from port terminal shall

be offered free of charge snacks, meals or

refreshments as are appropriate given the

waiting time, provided they are available and can

reasonably be supplied. If the delay in departure

necessitates a stay of one or more nights or a

stay additional to that intended by the passenger

where and when physically possible the

Company shall, subject to the Package Travel

Regulations 1992 and the EU Directive

2015/2302 on Package Travel (and subsequent

UK regulations, offer passengers departing from

port terminals free of charge adequate

accommodation on board or ashore, and

transport to and from the port terminal and place

of accommodation in addition to the snacks,

meals and refreshments previously referred to.

The maximum amount that the company will

pay for accommodation ashore and transport to

and from the port terminal shall be equivalent

to 80 Euros per person per night for a maximum

of three nights. The company will not have an

obligation to provide such accommodation

ashore where the delay is caused by weather

conditions endangering the safe operation of

the ship.

Please note the existence of a “Community list”

(available for inspection at https://ec.europa.

eu/transport/modes/air/safety/air-ban_en)

detailing air carriers that are subject to an

operating ban with the EU Community.

17. PROMPT ASSISTANCE
If the contract we have with you is not performed

or is improperly performed as a result of failures

attributable to you or a third party unconnected

with the provision of the arrangements, or as a

result of failures due to unusual and

extraordinary circumstances, and you suffer an

injury or other material loss, we will offer you

such prompt assistance as is appropriate in the

circumstances. In particular, we will provide you

with appropriate information on health services,

local authorities and consular assistance, and

with distance communications and finding

alternative travel arrangements. Where you

experience a delay which is not owing to any

failure by us, our employees or sub-contractors,

this prompt assistance is likely to extend to

providing help in locating refreshments,

accommodation and communications but not

paying for them. Any airline or other transport

supplier may however pay for or provide

refreshments and/or appropriate

accommodation and you should make a claim

directly to them. Subject to the other terms of

these conditions, we will not be liable for any

costs, fees or charges you incur in the above

circumstances, if you fail to obtain our prior

authorisation before making your own travel

arrangements.

18. VALIDITY OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions are valid from

January 2018 and the details and prices may be

superseded. Changes may occur after the date

of release , and some hotel/ship facilities may

become unavailable. While this website features

photography and descriptions of local wildlife,

there is no guarantee of sightings.

19. LAW AND JURISDICTION
Your contract shall be governed by English law

and the jurisdiction of the English Courts.

You may however choose the law and

jurisdiction of Scotland or Northern Ireland if

you wish to do so.

20. DATA PROTECTION
In order to process your booking and ensure your

travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your

requirements we, Hurtigruten Ltd, need to use

the information you provide such as name,

address, any special needs/dietary requirements

etc. We take full responsibility for ensuring that

proper security measures are in place to protect

your information. We must pass the information

on to the relevant suppliers of your travel

arrangements such as airlines, ships, hotels,

transport companies etc. The information may

also be provided to security or credit checking

companies, public authorities such as customs/

immigration if required by them, or as required

by law.

Additionally, where your holiday is outside the

European Economic Area (EEA), controls on

data protection in your destination may not be

as strong as the legal requirements in this

country. We will not pass any information on to

any person not responsible for part of your travel

arrangements. This applies to any sensitive

information that you give to us such as details

of any disabilities, or dietary/religious

requirements. (If we cannot pass this information

to the relevant suppliers, whether in the EEA or

not, we cannot provide your booking. In making

this booking, you consent to this information

being passed on to the relevant persons.) Please

note that where information is also held by your

travel agent, this is subject to your agent’s own

data protection policy. Hurtigruten is not

responsible for the privacy practices of any other

companies.
