Adventure is All-Inclusive

An HX trip includes everything from daily excursions and activities to our onboard Science Centre, meals, gratuities, drinks and more. ​ All designed to give you the expedition experience of a lifetime.

What do you get on an all-inclusive expedition with HX?

The all-inclusive you might expect…​

Breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day

Indulge in anything your appetite desires across a huge list of delicious choices that almost rival the memories you’ll make off the ship. Start the day with an impressive buffet breakfast before moving onto a mouth-watering menu of à la carte choices later in the day. Of course, that includes house wine and beer and soft drinks.

A warm welcome to the sauna, hot tubs and more

Make some time to spoil yourself and indulge in your ship's onboard sauna and hot tubs – they really make coming back from your day’s adventure all the more rewarding.

Delicious coffee, tea and soft drinks all day​

Choose from a variety of hot and cold drinks, from a caffeine boost in the morning to a sugar-rush after lunch. Refill stations for your OceanBottle are located throughout the ship, keeping you hydrated without using any single-use plastics.​ ​

All-inclusive drinks​

Enjoy a glass of wine or beer before dinner in the Pool Bar. Or unwind in the evening with a cocktail in the Explorer Lounge. Whatever and whenever you fancy, drinks are available throughout the day and evening at no additional cost (excluding premium drinks).

Gratuities included​

Fantastic service is standard at HX and we’ll never add discretionary charges onto your bill (though if you’d like to leave something extra, it’s always appreciated).

The all-inclusive that sets us apart​…

Daily expeditions and activities​

Every day, handpicked experts from a range of fields will lead you on discoveries whether on shore or on board. Join our Expedition Team on hikes, community visits and small boat trips before heading back to the ship and hearing fascinating talks in the lecture hall, as well as your briefing on the next day’s schedule.

Expedition gear and water bottle – yours to take home​

All guests receive a polar expedition jacket, a backpack, or another piece of HX exploration kit for the area you're exploring. And as the first cruise brand to ban single-use plastics, all guests receive a complimentary water bottle to refill on board and take home.​

Professional photos of your trip from our onboard photographer​

Every expedition has an onboard photographer who’ll capture stunning images from each day of your voyage. After you’ve returned home, we’ll send you a beautiful digital album along with a summary video to bring back your favourite memories and make those highlights easy to share.

Wi-Fi at no extra cost​

We offer Starlink Wi-Fi on all our ships (if only the Norwegian explorers who founded HX in 1896 could see us now). But be aware that we often sail in remote areas with limited connection and streaming isn’t supported.

Full access to our Science Centre

Often described by guests as “the heart of an HX ship”, our interactive science programme is like nothing you'll find elsewhere. Join our onboard scientists, hear from experts, collect samples and get involved in our citizen science projects. Spot something new with fellow birders or spend time studying what we find under the microscope.

  • Some specialist excursions and experiences with limited capacity​

  • Fine dining in our Lindstrøm restaurant​
