Please note: 

VERKTOY AS is not a professional cruise organizor (but this will be our cruise!), but Norways largest supplier of woodworking tools.
We organize this cruise for two reasons:
     1) to be able to present our products to our customers along the coast of Norway
     2) to let passengeres and fellow woodturners meet in very special surrondings and see our beatiful country, and at the same time get too see and know professional woodturners and their skills!

All the past cruises has been a great success and we are convinced that this will be another great cruise - especially with the ship MS GANN! We will do our best to make this an unforgettable journey and we are sure you will find it very exiting! Onboard you will find passengers from all over the world and most of them are interested in woodworking - so you will always have something to talk about!

We must mention that MS GANN has been organizing cruises to the North Cape for many, many years and they really know how to take good care of their passengers. The meals onboard are very good and you will also get to taste some of Norways specialites. Please note that there are no bar or alcohol served aboard the MS GANN. This is due to the fact that MS GANN are run by a Christian organization.

The cruise is sold on behalf of UNGE KRISTELIGE SJOMENNS FORENING (Skoleskipet GANN) by VERKTOY AS, and UNGE KRISTELIGE SJOMENNS FORENING are responsible for the transactions made in the webshop.

Personal details we obtain in this process will not be handed over or sold to third party.
