Frequently asked questions

How should I dress for a cruise to Iceland?

There is a lot to consider when packing for a cruise to Iceland. Warm, waterproof clothing is essential in Iceland. If you are on a cruise, this is even more important as the winds of the open seas can be very cold. If you plan on staying on deck for more than a few minutes at a time, you should consider bringing warm wind- and waterproof clothing. Hats, mittens, and sturdy shoes should also be a part of your luggage.

Can I use credit cards on my cruise to Iceland?

After disembarking from your Icelandic cruise, you will be able to use credit cards for all your basic needs. Icelanders, in general, do not carry cash but prefer electronic transactions. Your ability to use credit cards on board depends on the specific cruise you book. Some cruise ships issue special onboard cards that work similarly to a cabin account during your stay.

Is there a dress code on Icelandic cruiseships?

Most cruises heading to Iceland maintain a casual dress code. Some cruises, however, might demand a higher standard of dress. We recommend asking the crew or your travel operator for more information. Contact us at info@guidetoiceland.is if you have any questions.

What languages are spoken on board most cruises to Iceland?

English is the primary language spoken on board most cruise ships that port at Icelandic harbours, with German as a close second. Some ships offer services in English and German simultaneously.

Will I need a passport or a visa on my cruise to Iceland?

When travelling to Iceland by cruise, it is essential that you bring a passport, as this is the only valid travel document in Iceland. This also applies to citizens of Nordic and Schengen countries. If your country of residence is neither Nordic nor a part of Schengen, you might also need a visa to enter Iceland.
