Expedition ship MS Nordnorge is aptly named after the northern part of Norway, most of which lies north of the Arctic Circle.



Between 2002-2007 MS Nordnorge gave her guests memorable experiences in Antarctica. Today she is one of our three expedition ships, taking guests on more active voyages along the Norwegian coast. The interior décor reflects an Art Nouveau and Art Deco influence. At the top deck you will find a sun deck, an observation lounge and a panorama lounge, giving guests spectacular views of nature.
