Can I wash or/and dry your clothes?
Due to shortage on water supply, we will ask you to avoid cleaning your clothes on board. If anything gets wet during the trip, the engine room is very warm and can be used as a perfect drying place.
Can I recharge batteries and use the electrical power onboard?
Power for charging your batteries is available during sailing, when the motor is running (220V). We ask you to noHildur in Greenland Historic Anchoraget charge batteries during the night, when anchoring. Standard Icelandic plugs are available (two pins EU size).
Is there phone / web access?
The area we are cruising is very remote. Cell phones and internet are not working. Part of the charm of the trip is this fact actually!
However cell phones work at the airport in Constable Point and also in Ittoqqortoormiit, the village where we spend the two last nights.
If urgent, passengers can make a phonecall with one of the ship’s satellite phones or send e-mail, sms or fax via Inmarsat, (the ship’s satellite communications system)
