Hurtigruten ships are truly casual. There are no dress-up nights, no Captain's Gala. Service is exemplary without being demonstrative or attention seeking. For the most part, there is a "non-tipping" policy. If you want to tip a crewmember, it's totally up to you. The exceptions are the Greenland and Antarctica programs, where tips of about $9 per person, per day are automatically added to your account. There is also no entertainment, and dining takes a far less prominent place in the scheme of things than on American-market cruise liners. The two-seating set dinner menus generally offer three courses with no other selections -- everyone on a given evening will have the same appetizer, entree and dessert. There is a 24-hour cafe, but it is not a free amenity. Passengers must pay for their meals there. Liquor prices are high, but the line allows guests to bring their own alcohol onboard for consumption in cabins. Hurtigruten's fleet includes 15 ships, broken down into five different classes or categories.
