Welfare service in port

  • Published: 03/07/2017

Unfortunately, due to the corona situation, several welfare stations for seafarers are closed until further notice. The centres will reopen after the situation changes. The annual cruise ship football tournament in Bergen will not be arranged this summer. The Seamen's Centre in Narvik reopens with limited opening hours. Please contact the centre for further information. We wish sefarers all the best in this difficult time.
