Named after the northernmost region of Norway, the MS Nordnorge encapsulates all that is exciting, bold and beautiful about the polar regions of the globe, and is the perfect vessel in which to embark on an intrepid voyage to discover the true glory of these places.
Sailing to both the Arctic and the Antarctic, the ship has seen its fair share of adventure since coming into service in 1997, and offers the just the right amount of luxury in order ensure the complete comfort of all passengers without detracting from the sense of rugged exploration and discovery.
Cabins come in a range of sizes, with basic cabins featuring fold-out beds for those who want to feel like a rough and ready explorer without allowing too many amenities to detract from this sense of adventure.
Alternatively, if you'd prefer to travel in somewhat more lavish conditions then you'll have your choice of suites, with double beds, mini bars, private balconies and much more to help you feel right at home.
Throughout the ship, the Art Deco and Art Nouveau architecture and design features help to create an air of elegance, with works by some of Norway's most famous artists - including the likes of Johanne Marie Hansen-Krone, Ellen Lenvik and Dagfinn Bakke - adorning the walls.
As this is not your typical cruise liner, dining onboard the MS Nordnorge is relatively low-key, yet all food served on the ship is of the very highest quality, with traditional Norwegian dishes featuring prominently on the menu, as well as items that contain ingredients sourced from the destination to which you are voyaging.
The Halogaland Restaurant provides the main dining space, although there is also the Vagars Cafe for those who would prefer to eat in slightly more relaxed surroundings. The Stella Polars saloon bar, meanwhile, is a great place to hang out and socialise while enjoying a drink or two or satisfying your cravings with some light snacks.
