Onboard MS Maud guests will find three restaurants, all of which use fresh and sustainable ingredients sourced from suppliers along the Norwegian coastline:

  • Aune- the ship's main dining room
  • Fredheime- a casual eatery serving fast food and plant-based dishes
  • Lindstrom- elevated dining including seafood from the Arctic sea


Whilst you won't find Broadway-style theatre shows, onboard MS Maud, you can delight in an array of captivating opportunities to learn and discover more about the world around you. Alongside this, during the day, take advantage of deck games or head over to the library, where you can get lost in a good book whilst enjoying breathtaking ocean views.

Once evening arrives and you've worn yourself out after embarking on memorable shore excursions, the best place onboard MS Maud to unwind is the Explorer Lounge and Bar where you can enjoy a drink surrounded by panoramic views of the ocean. Alternatively, take your drink al fresco and take in the night sky from the ship's outdoor decks.

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. At the Science Center you will be able to learn more about the areas visited during your cruise, while the onboard Expedition Team are on hand with lectures and activities both on the ship and at each destination to help you get the most out of your voyage.

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.
