The emphasis on board is relaxation and discovery rather than the commercial entertainment that is often part of traditional cruises. Hertigruten's aim is to bring guests closer to unique environments and allow them to share their experiences with fellow travelers. Occasionally, there is musical entertainment on board in the evenings.
