Both the name and the interior design of this modern expedition ship are inspired by the spectacular Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
In May 2019 MS Nordlys was refurbished. All cabins got
a makeover, while new cabin grades were added. All staterooms and
suites are fully upgraded to match Hurtigruten's new standards. On
deck 6, a number of cabins were merged into larger suites, some
with large bay windows and spectacular views.
The gym on deck 7 is bigger, the sauna upgraded and two
aft-facing outdoor hot tubs are added. Two new lecture halls have
been added on deck 4, together with the open Kompass information
and shopping area, where guests can enjoy exclusive offers on
outdoor clothing and other items.
In addition to a full makeover, the aft-facing Torget main
restaurant has large deck-to-ceiling windows. The brand-new
Activity Center will act as the on-board headquarter for
Hurtigruten's Expedition Team.
Kysten Fine Dining - serving innovative dishes based on high
quality, local produce such as ultra-fresh seafood - is slightly
different from other Hurtigruten ships, and also be open for a la
carte lunch. On deck 7, the informal and hugely popular Hurtigruten
venue Multe Bakery is now open- serving freshly baked cakes and
pastries, smørbrød (open sandwiches with generous amounts of
topping), smoothies, a large assortment of local ice cream with
homemade toppings, premium coffee, organic herbal tea, and premium
juice. The forward-facing Explorer Lounge and Panorama Bar offers a
unique atmosphere and the best views on the ship - with front-row
seats for enjoying the Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, wildlife and
nature as it passes by.
MS Nordlys has her own on-board Expedition Team that
serves as a university at sea. Interesting lectures inside as well
as out on the sun deck of the ship make this an exciting and
