This way, the vessel reflects Havila’s identity and our aim of providing a holistic travel experience. “Havila’s firm foundations underpin a bold, inquisitive and enterprising spirit that is both down to earth and innovative. We aim to build lasting values by creating rewarding jobs, helping communities along the coast and working towards a sustainable future. This is reflected in some of the technology onboard.” To preserve the natural environment, Havila powers its ships with battery packs and natural gas. “Not only do the batteries reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they also allow you to stand out on deck and enjoy quiet sailing through the Norwegian fjords,” says Løvlien. The ferry operator is also minimising noise and pollution by sailing into and out of ports using only battery power. “Silence is a scarce commodity in many parts of the world, while Norway abounds with magnificent, pristine nature, clean water, fresh air and silence,” says Løvlien. “At Havila, this is how we’d like it to remain. We want to play our part by providing green transportation and focusing on sustainability.” Alongside its focus on nature, comfort, innovation and sustainability, Havila is also delivering a new food concept called Havila Food Stories which invites guests to enjoy their sea voyages in another dimension. “To enhance the experience of the Norwegian coast, Havila has divided the menu in the main restaurant into four different food regions – the fjords, the polar region, the Arctic and the archipelagos – that reflect the landscape in which you are sailing,” explains Løvlien. “This gives the kitchen the opportunity to show off the excellent ingredients that are found on the Norwegian coast, while giving our guests great freedom of choice. “In addition, the new Havila ships do not have buffets with crowds and queues that increase risk of infection. Instead, there is personal service at each table.” CFI “ Comfortable seats and panoramic windows give you the best possible views of the Norwegian coastline and the world’s most beautiful sea voyage” Spacious cabins feature Nordic materials and design to help passengers sleep well onboard
