Ship statistics;


MS Fridtjof Nansen

Named after the renowned Norwegian explorer and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, MS Fridtjof Nansen is the sister ship of Hurtigruten Cruises' MS Roald Amundsen. The vessels have been innovatively designed using a battery-hybrid powered propulsion system, and are considered to be true, next-generation expedition ships.

The décor onboard is fresh and contemporary, in classic Scandinavian design. Expect comfort and style with neutral colours and beautiful natural materials, such as birch, oak, granite, and wool. This relaxed ambience onboard is consistent throughout all public areas as well as cabins.

Where dining is concerned, choose from three venues, each of which serve a range of both tasty, traditional Nordic cuisine and international dishes, all made using ingredients local to the ports on each itinerary.

  • Aune- the ship’s main restaurant
  • Fredheim- perfect for casual yet delicious cuisine
  • Lindstrom- the onboard speciality restaurant

While a cruise with MS Fridtjof Nansen is all about the destinations you travel to, this doesn’t have to mean that your time onboard the ship is any less special. Once night falls, the best place to unwind after a day packed with discovery is the Explorer’s Lounge where you can catch up with other guests and enjoy a drink from the bar. Alternatively, head outside to the deck and take a stroll, breathing in the fresh sea air and admiring the beautiful starry sky. If you’d rather stay in your room, the spacious and stylish cabins are perfect for an evening of relaxing.

Use your time onboard MS Fridtjof Nansen to learn more about the destinations you visit thanks to the Nansen Science Centre, which doubles as the headquarters of the Onboard Expedition Team, ready and waiting to impart their expert knowledge onto eager ears. The ship also comes equipped with its own Blueye underwater drones, kayaks and expedition boats to help enhance your discovery experience with Hurtigruten.

However, a cruise wouldn’t be complete without some restful downtime and with plenty of spots to choose from, including the Explorer’s Lounge, the Wellness Centre, observation decks and infinity pool, there’s more than enough opportunity to leave your stresses behind you.
