  • Applications are considered on a rolling basis

With our 130 years of experience along the Norwegian coast, we have connected coastal communities and given our guests an authentic experience whether they sail short or far, from port to port or full round trip. At the same time, we have transported important cargo between ports. Our original coastal voyage is known worldwide as "the world's most beautiful coastal voyage", combining beautiful scenery and authentic culture with delicious food experiences. In addition, we have our beautiful ship, MS Trollfjord, which sails to Svalbard in the summer and North Cape in the winter.

Now, Hurtigruten Norway are ready to increase the number of commercial ships on this iconic voyage. MS Otto Sverdrup sails from Hamburg to Norwegian destinations with primarily German guests, where we want new colleagues who can communicate in German.

We are looking for you who are passionate about service and love to offer great guest experiences. Do you want to join the journey and show our guests our home?
