View Cruise Deals

Comfort, discovery and sustainability are at the heart of what Hurtigruten's MS Maud- previously known as MS Midnatsol- has to offer guests who choose to embark on an expedition cruise with her. Boasting itineraries from her homeport in Dover, you'll get the chance to visit remote ports of call in the Norwegian Fjords, Southern Scandinavia or the British Isles, all while enjoying a fantastic onboard experience. The sophisticated and stylish interior, fitted with calming, natural Scandinavian materials, is complemented by the outdoor deck space which allows guests to admire the stunning scenery as they take a stroll or relax in a hot tub. In addition, guests can travel safe in the knowledge that advanced technology onboard MS Maud, including low-emission motors, helps to make sure this fantastic vessel has as little environmental impact as possible.

Things to do

As well as the chance to head ashore at each port of call, guests can also enrich their time onboard MS Maud courtesy of the ship's fantastic facilities.

Alternatively, if you'd simply like to spend some time enjoying life onboard, why not relax in the hot tub, visit the gym, browse the shop or just sit back and watch the world pass you by in the Observation Lounge.
