Sister ship to MS Roald Amundsen, MS Fridtjof Nansen is an incredible feat in the world of expedition vessels. Built using a battery hybrid-powered propulsion system, dramatically lowering her carbon emissions, she is considered a revolutionary ship. A commitment to discovery and exploration of our world is evident throughout the ship, from being named after the famous Norwegian explorer and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, to its facilities’ Scandinavian-inspired décor.
Onboard the tone of the ship is one of both comfort and style. In true Norwegian elegance, MS Fridtjof Nansen has been designed with great care, creating a calm and welcoming atmosphere where guests can enjoy both destination immersion and memorable hours spent on the ship. Fittings and furnishings are made with natural materials including oak, birch and granite for neutral and gentle colours.
There are three dining venues onboard, the main restaurant, Aune, a speciality restaurant, Lindstrom, and a more informal option, Fredheim, each serving a great choice of both Nordic and international cuisine. Where possible dishes are made with local ingredients from the ports on each itinerary, meaning destination immersion happens at mealtimes too and not just during your time off the ship.
Evenings onboard MS Fridtjof Nansen are designed to help guests unwind after an exciting day of discovering the gems the Norwegian coastline has to offer. After a delicious meal at one of the three restaurants, head to the Explorer Lounge for a quiet drink and the opportunity to socialise with other guests.
A cruise with MS Fridtjof Nansen aims to introduce guests to some of the most spectacular destinations on the planet, which is it why this ship is stocked with equipment designed to enhance destination immersion. When in port, guests will have use of kayaks, Blueye underwater drones and expedition boats so they can get up close and personal with what these waters have to offer. The experience is further enhanced by the Onboard Expedition Team, a group of specialists and modern-day explorers, eager to help you learn more about the places you visit. Alongside the Nansen Science Centre, this ship is ideal for those wanting to delve deeper into each destination.
For those free hours on the ship where you’d simply like to sit back and relax, the Explorer’s Lounge, observation decks and the Wellness Centre are all perfect spots for making the most of the leisurely hours at sea, while the onboard gym is fully equipped for anyone wanting to keep up with their workout.
