Overview

Countries Served:

Having been established in 1982, Smyril Line offers passenger and freight shipping in the North Atlantic and North Sea. The company offers passengers on foot or with cars to travel to/from Iceland and the Faroe Islands by ferry.

Accommodation

The company operates with a single ship, the M/S Norröna; one of the newest passenger ships in the Atlantic. The ship offers a choice of three levels of accommodation; couchettes, standard berths and De Luxe cabins. 

Couchettes

Couchettes are the best value accommodation option for your voyage. Couchettes are effectively just plastic covered mattreses; you will need to bring a sleeping bag or suitable bedding. Each cabin has six or nine berths which are shared with other passengers. Bathroom and toilet facilities are shared with other couchette cabins in each gangway.

Cabins

All cabins have a bath/shower, television, wardrobe and desk, and are available with or without a window (without a window is obviously cheaper). Cabins with windows also come with a fridge. All cabins come with bed linen, towels and wardrobes, and bathrooms have a hairdryer and electric razor socket. Cabins feature electrical sockets for charging portable devices as well as a television for entertainment. Cabins come in a choice of sizes: 2-berths, 3-berths and 4-berths. 

2-berth cabins are arranged with a bunk bed (top bunk folds up when not in use). The bottom bunk converts into a sofa for daytime use. 3-berth cabins have one fold-up bunk bed and two sofas. 4-berth cabins have two fold-up bunk beds as well as two sofas. 

De Luxe Cabins

De Luxe cabins are more spacious than standard cabins, featuring double beds rather than bunks, as well as a sofa, two chairs, a telephone and other facilities. All De Luxe cabins have windows, fridges and en-suite bathrooms.
