MS Kong Harald

The present king of Norway, a seasoned sailor, gives his name to this ship. His is not the only famous name you will find on board.


The bar is named after the Norwegian polar pioneer Fridtjof Nansen, while explorer Roald Amundsen lends his name to the café. The top deck offers great views of nature, whether you choose the sun deck, the observation lounge or the panorama lounge.
