What are the advantages of a premium boat from Flam to Gudwangen? Or is that just what they call all of them?
It's a fancy boat designed for viewing: https://www.visitflam.com/globalassets/the-fjords/vision-of-the-fjords/visionofthefjord_c_sverrehjornevik-21347_1200x650_m_ship_of_the_year_2016.jpg?width=840&quality=60
The classic boat is more like a traditional boat with two decks, a cafe and outdoor seating. The classic boat operates during the winter.
I guess my real question is: What are the specific advantages of the Premium? How much more does it cost?
During the winter season, the operator reserves the right to interchange the "premium" and "classic" boats. This would imply that the price is the same for the same NIN Flam to Gudwangen route.
