Vafler (Waffles) on board!

Waffles have a special place in Scandinavian culture. Compared to Belgian waffles, Norwegian waffles are thinner, and often heart-shaped. Waffles are usually served later in the day with coffee, brun ost (brown cheese, it is amazing!), raspberry jam, and cream.

Everyone onboard is indebted to the chef and the steward for providing delicious meals, along with valfer and sveler breaks (delicious Norwegian pancakes served midday). Thank you! Hjertelig takk!
