Havila Cabin Guide – Inside, Seaview, Panoramic View, Suites and Accessible Cabins

If you are considering booking a trip on any of Havila’s four modern ships you might be wondering which cabin option would suit you best.

Havila has four ships – Havila Capella, Castor, Pollux and Polaris. These ships are identical, so this review is relevant no matter which ship you are sailing on.

All the Havila ships were built between 2021 and 2023. They sail along the Norwegian coast from Bergen to Kirkenes and back.

Accessible Cabins – Interior and Exterior Rooms

Accessible cabins sleep between two and four people.

  • Range between 16–18 m²
  • 2 lower and 2 upper berths

Panoramic Superior And Panoramic Deluxe Cabins

These cabins are located on deck 7 at the bow of the ship and have floor-to-ceiling windows. You are looking out in the direction that the ship is sailing, and you will feel like the skipper at the helm.


Bear in mind that although you might feel like “The Skipper at the helm” you will feel more movement right at the front of the ship.

That is fine if you don’t suffer from seasickness, but as someone who does, I would think twice before booking these cabins!

The position of the cabin can make a lot of difference to how much ship movement you feel. Find out more about that here:
