Hurtigruten Cruises Ships

  • MS Finnmarken

    MS Finnmarken

    The ship belongs to the same class as MS Trollfjord and MS Midnatsol. It is Hurtigruten’s only ship with both a swimming pool and a Jacuzzi on deck. A very special feature of MS Finnmarken is that on deck 5 there is an outdoor deck at the very front of the ship for guests to enjoy. The ship is beautifully appointed and decorated in an Art Deco style.

  • MS Fram

    MS Fram

    Fram means ‘forward’ – lifting expectations of the voyage at hand. MS Fram was built in 2007 with one mission in mind – to bring her guests closer to nature, wildlife and unforgettable experiences. The spacious outside decks include access to the very front of the ship – a great place to observe marine wildlife.

  • MS Midnatsol

    MS Midnatsol

    MS Midnatsol has a strong environmental profile and a modern design. The interior’s bright, colourful décor is inspired by the warm sunny climate, a motif also reflected in the many pieces of Norwegian modern art on display. She is also a TV star, being featured in the award winning documentary "Hurtigruten 365", made by Norwegian TV. Key qualities of the MS Midnatsol include the large, two-story panorama lounge above the bow, and the large glass expanses that allow natural light to enter, while providing extraordinary views.

  • MS Nordkapp

    MS Nordkapp

    MS Nordkapp is named after one of the highlights of the Hurtigruten coastal voyage, the North Cape, which at 71° N is the northernmost point of mainland Europe. As one of our expedition ships, MS Nordkapp travels with its own expedition team. The Scandinavian interior is stylish yet unpretentious, providing the perfect base for active exploration of the Norwegian coastline. Built in 1996, the ship is home to artworks by the renowned Norwegian artist Karl Erik Harr. The MS Nordkapp was upgraded in 2016 with mini suites and Jacuzzis.

  • MS Nordnorge

    MS Nordnorge

    ‘Nord-Norge’ refers to the northern region of Norway, most of which is situated north of the Arctic Circle. Built in 1997, MS Nordnorge is the fourth Hurtigruten ship to have this name, and from 2002–2007 it gave guests a memorable experience in Antarctica. As of 2016, the new, stylish décor, with a modern, Nordic feel, reflects the breathtaking, raw landscape of Arctic Norway. Spend evenings enjoying the ship’s elegant, maritime atmosphere after a day of experiencing a wide selection of active excursions and activities.

  • MS Roald Amundsen

    MS Roald Amundsen

    MS Roald Amundsen will be a supremely comfortable base camp at sea, and the stunning scenery she passes through will be reflected in the luxe and stylish interior design. Best of all, MS Roald Amundsen will be the first expedition ship ever to sail with electric hybrid technology.

  • MS Spitsbergen

    MS Spitsbergen

    MS Spitsbergen features elegant, modern, comfortable public areas and cabins and the decor reflects the color palette of the Norwegian Sea. Tillberg Design of Sweden – the world’s leading company in maritime architecture and interior design – has created a fresh and clean feel in the interior. The ship is environmentally-friendly with technical improvements to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. It is equipped and adapted for sailings in polar waters through­out the Arctic region.

    MS Trollfjord

    Named after the famous Trollfjord, which is situated between the Vesterålen and Lofoten Islands.

Hygiene and Safety Protocols - Hurtigruten Cruises

Be assured that Hurtigruten always follow all safety guidelines as recommended by the Norwegian government. One reason for this confidence in us is because we already have exceptionally high hygiene procedures in place:

  • As normal service resumes, Hurtigruten will be reducing the overall number of guests on ships, giving you plenty of space around you when aboard.
  • In Hurtigruten's roomy restaurants, they are adding more seating sessions so that there will be fewer people having their meals there at any time.
  • Instead of self-service buffets, the chefs will serve food directly to your individual plate.
  • The kitchen will continue to uphold its usual high standards of hygiene and quality.

Strict cleaning practices on board

Count on us to already have a range of strict cleaning practices on board, with the cleanness of each ship also continuously monitored. Regular microbiological samples are taken and sent off to laboratories for testing and they use UV light to check surfaces in cabins, galleys and public areas.

Independent inspectors are invited to conduct scheduled and unannounced visits to all the ships several times a year. The excellent hygiene on board the ships is not something they leave to chance. It is the result of effective controls that have proven themselves time and again over decades of safe sailing.

In addition to this,

  • Each ship will have a new team dedicated to ensuring communal areas are continually cleaned and disinfected.
  • There will be limited use of saunas, swimming pools and gyms.
  • Hurtigruten will also have appropriate markings on the ships to help keep a safe distance from others whenever queuing on board.

Staff and your well-being

  • They have all recently completed the WHO’s official COVID-19 course for hygiene procedures and infection management.
  • Before starting work, every member of the crew undergoes a health check.
  • They have thorough first-aid training and can quickly contact healthcare professionals should any medical need arise.
