Nordlys actually means 'Northern Lights' in Norwegian, which accurately reflects her delicate light interior.

MS Nordlys is named after the spectacular natural phenomenon visible in these waters between October and March. Nordlys, meaning the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis), which appear in the sky of the Northern Hemisphere as green and sometimes red flaming "waves" and will leave you with memories that will last forever. MS Nordlys was built in 1994 and its art, décor and colours are all inspired by the Northern Lights phenomenon. With her light and delicate interior, Norwegian artists have created a unique and distinct environment on board. Passangers are encouraged to relax in the ship's elegant maritime atmosphere, panorama lounges and comfortable reclining chairs.
The public areas and lounges invite relaxation with maritime elegance and comfortable seating areas.

The Hurtigruten (formerly known as Norwegian Coastal Voyage) fleet have their own individual style, though all offer an immersive explorative cruise experience. Life onboard is relaxed and informal, though service standards are high as the crew take much pride in their work.
Some of the fleet remain as working ships, as such a Hurtigruten cruise is often a rich experience of both Norwegian and Arctic life.
