"Great ship, staff and organisation too"
Can't say too much about the food on board, but we weren't there to eat. I can say that the quality of the welcome from the staff when we got on the fjord cat was excellent.. Ship was also very clean. All in all, the trip went really well.

The port town of Hirtshals is on the coast of Skagerrak on the island of Vendsyssel-Thy, at the top of the Jutland Peninsular in northern Denmark. Known for its fishing and ferry port, the town's economy is heavily reliant on the fishing industry and on tourism, with many houses available to rent during the summer months. The ferries that use the town's port bring the tourists into the town which benefit the local shops. Particularly large numbers of Norwegians visit Hirtshals to shop all year round. One of Europe's largest aquariums, The Nordsoen Oceanarium, is located in the town and has over 70 different species in its collection.
The harbour is full of activities and the ambience is authentic. When visiting Hirtshals enjoy the natural surroundings which are ideal for many outdoor activities.
From the port, ferries can be taken to Bergen, Kristiansand, Stavanger, Langesund, Larvik, Seydisfjordur and Torshavn.
The Norwegian town and port of Langesund, and the administrative centre of the region, is an old coastal town that can trace its history back to 1765. The town's economic fortunes have been linked to its harbour for lumber, shipbuilding and for ice and is located on a fjord also called Langesund. Visitors strolling through the town will see some lovely well preserved, and some restored, buildings that date back to the 18th century. Heading away from the town the area is rich in flora and geology, and to take advantage of the great outdoors, the town is known for having more sunny days than any other coastal town in Norway. The city is perhaps at its liveliest during the summer months when a number of concerts and festivals are held in the town, including the international Shanty Festival and the Seafood and Fish Festival.
The town's port offers ferry services throughout the year to Hirtshals in Denmark. The ferry port has 4 short stay parking spaces outside the terminal. Inside, there are vending machines providing snacks and refreshments.
