MS Nordnorge

MS Nordnorge takes its name from the most northerly area of Norway and is the perfect ship for exploring the Arctic and Antarctic. The modern facilities are balanced by a style which is influenced by Art Nouveau and Art Deco, ensuring adherence to true Hurtigruten tradition, while producing a light and airy atmosphere.

Cabins come in a variety of sizes, smaller ones with foldout beds for any cruisers looking to feel more like a polar explorer, while those wanting to enjoy their nights in luxury can choose a more spacious suite with a balcony and sweeping ocean views.

No matter which cabin you choose, a cruise on MS Nordnorge is one of the best ways to explore some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.

Ship Facilities

Expect exceptional dining from morning to evening when you cruise with MS Nordnorge. The main restaurant is Norway’s Coastal Kitchen, aptly named as it serves up locally sourced, fresh Norwegian fare. Served buffet-style, guests can enjoy everything from meat and fish to freshly baked bread and decadent desserts, expertly prepared by a dedicated and passionate team of chefs.

For informal, quick bites, Brygga Bistro serves burgers, sandwiches and pizza, perfect if you find yourself feeling a bit peckish during the day.

However, if you’d like to indulge in even finer dining, splash out on three courses of exquisite cuisine at the speciality Kysten restaurant. For an even more exclusive experience, book a seat at the Arctic King Crab Club which takes place at least once each cruise and consists of a huge feast including a fresh king crab plucked from a display tank in the restaurant.

The main hub of evening entertainment onboard the ship is the Explorer Lounge. Here you’ll find guests winding down and exchanging stories with a drink in their hand after an exciting day of shore excursions.

While the main focus of the cruise are the shore expeditions, guests can use their time on the ship to enrich their knowledge of each destination. Each day, the Expedition Team lead lectures and seminars on topics including the Northern Lights, the Norwegian way of life and polar expeditions. There is also the opportunity to sample local delicacies courtesy of the chef on the top deck.

Although the ship is small, it’s still packed with ways for guests to relax in their downtime. Strolling around the deck is popular amongst those wanting to take in the ever-changing views, while the two hot tubs are perfect for relaxing in the fresh air. There are also two saunas and a fitness room with an array of equipment for any guests wishing to stay active during their cruise.

In addition, if you find that you step on the ship only to realise that you’ve forgotten something essential such as toothpaste, The Kompass sells all the toiletries you could need, while the boutique next door stocks clothes and trinkets for you to buy at duty-free prices.

Customer reviews for MS Nordnorge

Excellent experience. room with no window didn't feel claustrophobic. ship had good facilities especially the lectures given by entertainment team. very interesting and informative. Food very nice . all drinks expensive although we realised this was the culture of the country. Crossing the Artic circle was a memorable experience. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Would recommend this trip as a special different type of holiday experience.

My Husband & I embarked on a Cruise from Bergen to The Russian Border aboard The Nordnorge, in 1989. My Parents in Law had done this very same cruise aboard the same Nordnorge some 30 years before us. The Cruise itself is Awesome! As The ship is a working vessel. She & her sister ships are a Lifeline to All the various communities, villages, & towns along their route. Carrying Everything from Food, Medical , Building Supplies..., Schoolchildren, People, (businessmen & Others )., even Hearses & coffins. It is one of the most interesting cruises which we have done. The Service onboard is second to none. The Cuisine is also Brilliant. Yes, I would go on such a trip again.
