Hurtigruten Ships & Deck Plans

 

THE HURTIGRUTEN FLEET

The Hurtigruten fleet consists of 12 ships including our explorer ship MS Fram. Whilst they vary in size depending on age, they all have their own individual unpretentious style and character, complementing the informal and relaxed atmosphere you will find on board.

All the Hurtigruten ships vary depending on their size and age from the MS Finnmarken, Trollfjord & Midnatsol built in 2002 and 2003, to the traditional vessel MS Lofoten (1964), still a favourite for many returning guests. Each ship has a different style and design, from the on board art to the ship’s colours and interiors. Despite their aesthetic differences, they provide the same intimate travel experience, with their own informal Hurtigruten atmosphere.

On board our ships, large, comfortable lounges provide panoramic views as you glide silently and slowly through some of the world’s most beautiful and untouched scenery. All the ships, except for the older, smaller vessels have a small library where you can immerse yourself in a good book, and a café serving snacks and drinks 24 hours a day. Some of the newer ships have Jacuzzis and a fitness room. 


MS Trollfjord, MS Midnatsol
These two modern ships joined the fleet in 2002 and 2003. Each vessel has its own distinct style and character, offering the latest in cabin and suite comfort, on board facilities and spacious panorama lounges.


MS Nordnorge, MS NordkappMS Polarlys, MS NordlysMS Richard With, MS Kong Harald 
Built between 1993 & 1997 these ships combine small ship atmosphere with space, style and comfort. Each has its own design, featuring works of art by Norwegian artists.


MS Vesterålen
Built in 1983 this vessel is smaller and more intimate than the newest ships, and is popular among travellers who enjoy the real ‘working ship’ experience.


MS Lofoten, MS Nordstjernen
These traditional ships are small and nostalgic vessels steeped in heritage and character.
