Safer together

Whenever you sail aboard The Norwegian Coastal Express, whether for 12 days or a few hours, your safety is our highest priority.

What to do before embarkation?

On 12 February, the Norwegian authorities lifted all restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have also changed our infections control measures to reflect the Norwegian governments advise, but we have retained some measures on board.

Please note that our infection control measures may change on short notice, both before and during your voyage. We continuously monitor the situation and the Norwegian governments regulations and recommendations. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you follow the entry – and travel requirements from the Norwegian government, also for domestic travel.

Show up at least 15 minutes before departure

To avoid delays, all guests must be ready for boarding no later than 15 minutes before departure in all ports. If you board the ship in Bergen, you need to be in the terminal no later than 30 minutes before departure. 

On Board

Social distancing

We encourage all guests to keep a social distance to others when possible.

Face masks

Face masks are voluntary on board.  

Hand washing

All guests are asked to maintain good hand hygiene, and to wash hands regularly. You are required to wash or sanitize your hands before all meals. Hand sanitizer is available all over the ship.  

Temperature scanner

We have contactless scanners that will measure your body temperature at the gangway and at the entrances to all restaurants. 

Nurse

All our ships have a trained nurse on board. The nurse and crew on board are responsible for following up all suspected cases of infection. 

Cleaning

Our already strict cleaning protocols have been further strengthened during the COVID-19 pandemic. We routinely clean and disinfect cabins and surfaces in public areas. 

Air conditioning

We use air conditioning systems that provide constant air supply - the air is not recycled. 

Excursions and going ashore

Infection control

We have the same infection control measures during shore excursions as we do on board. 

Changes to the portfolio

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our excursion portfolio may change at short notice if the infection situation and our infection control measures change.
