Sister ship to MS Roald Amundsen, MS Fridtjof Nansen is also an incredible feat in the world of expedition vessels. Built using a battery-hybrid powered propulsion system, she is largely 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, scientist, humanitarian, and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, to its facilities, and even décor. The 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.
Onboard, the tone of the ship is one of both comfort and style. In true Scandinavian elegance, MS Fridtjof Nansen has been designed with great care – fittings and furnishings are made with natural materials including wool, oak, birch, and granite, and colours onboard are neutral and gentle. These aspects all help to engender a calm atmosphere, which guests will certainly enjoy after active days out exploring.
There are three dining venues onboard, the main restaurant, Aune, a speciality restaurant, Lindstrom, and a more informal option, Fredheim. Each of these serve a great choice of both Nordic and international cuisine, and where possible dishes are made with local ingredients from the ports on each itinerary.
Other facilities include the Nansen Science Centre – the perfect place to learn more about each of the places you will visit, and headquarters to the expert team of expeditioners. Guests can also spend time in the Explorer’s Lounge, the observation decks, the Wellness Centre and gym, and the impressive infinity pool and Jacuzzis.
