Adventure is All-Inclusive

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

What can you expect on an all-inclusive expedition with HX?

Your all-inclusive includes...

Breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day

With a huge range of options, you can indulge in nearly anything your appetite desires. Start the day with an impressive buffet breakfast before moving on to 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 relax in your ship's onboard sauna and hot tubs -- they really make returning from the day's adventures that much 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 at the Pool Bar before dinner. Or unwind in the evening with a cocktail in the Explorer Lounge. Whatever you’re in the mood for and whenever you like, 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. If you’d like to leave something extra, it’s always appreciated.

Experience the all-inclusive that sets us apart

Daily expeditions and activities

Handpicked experts from a range of fields will lead you on discoveries each day, 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. Optional premium activities like kayaking are available to guests for an extra fee, depending on the destination.

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 is the trip of a lifetime, and we have a professional onboard photographer on each ship who’ll capture stunning images from your voyage. You will receive these as a beautiful digital album after you’ve returned home as part of your HX Expedition Logbook.

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). Be aware that we often sail in remote areas with limited connection and streaming isn’t supported.

Full access to our Science Center

Often described by guests as “the heart of an HX ship,” our interactive science program 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 optional premium excursions and experiences with limited capacity​, such as kayaking and camping
