Onboard The First Cruise Ship to Set Sail, Post-Covid

Recommended Posts

From Hurtigruten site:

 

Did the 90 year old need/get one of the required notes from a doctor? Do Norwegians get special permission? There have been a few discussions on different threads about  US doctors being reluctant to "sign-off" on such a form.  Ninety years old really seems to be quite an exception of someone getting the OK from their doctor.  Just wondering.

 

Guests who are in the “Slightly Increased Risk group” as defined by the Norwegian Health Administration (FHI) need to provide a health certificate from a qualified physician documenting a good health status. This group includes: guests aged 66-80; guests aged 50-65 who have any of the following conditions also need to provide a health certificate: cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic lung, liver or kidney disease, a compromised immune system, morbid obesity. We are sorry but regulations forbid us from taking guests who are are in the “Moderate to High Risk group” as defined by FHI, to Svalbard at this time. This group includes guests over 80 years of age, or guests of any age who have 2 or more of the conditions listed above and guests of any age with severe health conditions.

No - not required - this was a Norwegian Coastal Voyage from Bergen to Kirkenes - the requirements you’re referring to is  Special requirements apply to our guests joining voyages to Svalbard” - different from the Coastal Voyage.
